Yes, RPL is an alternative method of assessment available to all students.
Skills and knowledge through either previous training or experience, can be assessed for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). Students need to provide suitable evidence which may include examples of their work, a resume outlining their work history, 3rd party reports, and other methods to help identify the applicable skills and knowledge. This may reduce the amount of time taken to gain the qualification. RPL assessments can only take place after the student has enrolled in the course. RPL assessments take place at the beginning of each Cluster (or short course). If you are unsure if you have suitable evidence for RPL this can be discussed with your Course Coordinator prior to commencing each Cluster (or short course). Normal fees apply for RPL assessments.
