Are you eligible for RPL?

What is Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)?  Recognition is a process of acknowledging previously completed skills, qualifications, knowledge or other experience relevant to your particular course. If you previously completed such modules, this may reduce the overall amount of learning or course units required that may allow you to achieve your qualification sooner.

If you believe that you have gained recognition through experience of your skills, knowledge or experience as part of your previous part-time, full-time or casual work, you may be eligible to apply.  To apply for RPL, you can contact us for more information.
