Recognition of Prior Learning

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is undertaken through a streamlined assessment process that takes a practical approach maximizing the use of on-site questioning and observation. Assessments are conducted this way to assist assessors in obtaining a full picture of the candidate’s skills and knowledge. This can then be compared with industry standards enabling a determination of whether the candidate has achieved the required outcomes.
