Upon submission of an RPL application full payment is required. The outcome of the initial assessment is recorded and communicated to each candidate. Before progressing to collect further evidence, the assessor will determine if the application is strong enough to continue and advise of further evidence required. All certifications submitted with the RPL application are to be JP certified.

Where the participant is not able to achieve the full qualification through RPL and gap training is required a training plan and costing structure will be provided. If the participant is granted RPL for a unit/s this may reduce your study/training time.

Where the participant is not able to achieve the full qualification through RPL and gap training is required a training plan and costing structure will be mutually agreed upon. The basis of the cost structure will be pro-rata on a unit by unit basis based on the scheduled course fee. If you are granted RPL for a unit/s this may reduce your study/training time.

How do I prove that I have the necessary skills and knowledge?

The evidence you provide within your application must be:

  • Valid: verifying that your skills and knowledge meet the requirements specified in the unit of competency

  • Authentic: proving that it was really produced by you or relates to your performance and knowledge

  • Current: showing experience you’ve had within the last two years

  • Sufficient: covering all aspects of the relevant unit/s of competency against the elements, performance criteria, performance evidence, knowledge evidence, critical aspects (where applicable), and Foundation Skills (where not implicit with the performance criteria).

When compiling RPL documentary evidence you may include the following documentary evidence, but not limited to:

• Resume or work history
• Position Description from current and previous roles
• Formal qualifications, certificates, statements of attainment, and results of assessments
• Documented examples of work
• Completion of training record book or learning logs
• Details of in-house courses, in-service, workshops, seminars, or inductions
• Records of training and education – transcripts of training histories
• Recent referees – references, letters, or correspondence from previous employers or supervisors
• Third-party reports – confirmation from previous employers or supervisors of how you have applied your skills and knowledge in the workplace in reference to the unit/s of competency

• Work performance reports
• Awards

Credit transfer

Similar to RPL is a process called credit transfer. If you have completed structured training which consisted of units with content identical to those in the course you are enrolling in, you may be eligible for credit transfer. You must be able to present your statement of attainment that you have attained for the unit/s of competency.

In order to receive credit transfer, the participant is required to provide the original or a JP-certified copy of the AQF qualification and transcript of results or statement of attainment issued by another Registered Training Organisation.
