The facts about this course

RPL Assessment

Please note we only offer this course by Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), we do not offer this course by classroom or online training.

The objective of the RPL assessment process is to ensure that an individuals prior learning achieved through formal and informal training, work experience or other life experience is appropriately recognised which enables you to forego training and move directly to having your skills assessed, thus avoiding the need for unnecessary training that brings with it additional costs, including time and effort.

The exciting concept of our skills assessment service means that all the work required to complete the assessment is done at home or in your work environment. The assessment tools are easy to access in any location you may be working or living.

Competency is granted if you are able to verify that you have achieved the elements of competency standards being assessed. For example, you may have completed some or all units of competence in another course or gained experience in a job.

What’s the price?
