Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process of identifying your knowledge and skills against a qualification or part thereof. The process involves the identification, mediation, assessment and acknowledgement of knowledge and skills obtained through informal, and/ or formal learning.
RPL provides an opportunity for you to identify your learning, have it assessed and formally acknowledged, there are entry requirements that must be meant for entry into this process. RPL can be conducted on numerous unit standards, qualifications and training courses.
The aim behind RPL assessments is to provide the candidate the opportunity to gain formal recognition or a qualification for their experience and knowledge, without having to do a full course, perhaps only refresher or part course training may be required.
