If you are already working in an industry and want to consolidate your experience into a nationally recognised qualification consider RPL.
Recognition of prior learning also referred to as RPL, is the formal acknowledgement of a person’s current skills and knowledge you’ve gained through work and life experiences. It is the process through which your skills, knowledge and experience can be converted into nationally recognised qualifications.
Being awarded qualifications through RPL means that you don’t have to study what you already know. Instead, you provide evidence that you already have the knowledge and skills that studying the qualification would give you. RPL can be granted for part of a qualification (in which case a Statement of Attainment might be issued to list the Units of Competency that were awarded) or for a full qualification often shortening the time needed to gain a qualification.
The RPL application process is a streamlined process that does not rely solely on documentary evidence. It uses a combination of questioning, practical assessment and supporting evidence to provide evidence of the applicant’s skills and knowledge. A minimum of six months of relevant experience is required and the experience cited as evidence must be verifiable and must be from the last five years.
