What is RPL?

Recognition of Prior Learning or RPL is an assessment process aimed at confirming and recognising the competencies a candidate has obtained outside of a formal education and training environment.


These competencies might have been gained through informal or non-formal training, or they may have been gained through life or work experience. RPL assessment enables individuals to forego training and move directly to having their competencies assessed, thus avoiding the need for unnecessary training that brings with it additional costs, including time and effort.


Based on the skills and knowledge that you have, you can apply for up to 100% of a qualification or a course.


RPL is not the same as Credit Transfer. Credit transfer applies if you already hold completed units of competency from a nationally recognised qualification. You can seek exemption from any equivalent unit of competency within another qualification. This means that you can achieve your qualification faster, and more cost effectively.


At Selmar, providing recognition of prior learning is a process that includes interviewing you and analysing your current skills and knowledge against the qualification you are applying for. We then determine with you which units you have been granted RPL for and which units (if any) we can train you in to all any knowledge or skill gap you might have. We will work with you then to design a training program to suit your needs. We provide a streamlined process that eliminates the mountains of paper work that is often associated with recognition programs and develop a system that works for you.
