What is RPL?

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is an assessment process used by RTOs to evaluate a person's skills, knowledge and experience gained through working and learning, in Australia or overseas, be it through life experience, work or other activities such as volunteering. RTOs can also provide a credit against units of competency, often shortening the time needed to undertake a qualification.

The four steps involved in receiving a qualification through RPL are:

  • A free, no obligation, RPL eligibility assessment provided by an experienced Skills Certified representative
  • Compiling and submitting your 'Experience Portfolio' to provide relevant documentation such as photos and videos of you on the job, references, previous qualifications, current resume etc.
  • A qualified assessor, from one of our partnering RTOs, will review the evidence and determine if you are eligible for a qualification via RPL      
  • If the RTO's assessor deems you eligible, a relevant qualification will be awarded by the registered training organisation
