    • Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

      Your existing skills, knowledge and experience can help you get a recognised qualification, through an assessment process called Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). You could be granted a full or part qualification, saving you valuable time and money, while enhancing your career prospects.

      The process could suit you if you have:

      • Paid or unpaid work experience
      • Prior formal training
      • Skills and knowledge gained on the job
      • Community work experience
      • Short course and work-based learning
      • Trade skills
      • Other life experience.

      Credit Transfer

      Credit transfer is one of a number of processes for establishing credit. It provides a means for students to gain credit in an AQF qualification on the basis of completed components of another AQF qualification or other formal learning.

      The credit transfer process involves:

      • Mapping, comparing and evaluating the extent to which the learning outcome, discipline content and assessment requirements of the individual components of one qualification are equivalent to the learning outcomes, discipline content and assessment requirements of the individual components of another qualification, and
      • Making a judgment about the credit to be assigned between the matched components of the two qualifications.
