Y ou may be eligible to receive credit or recognition for training you have previously completed or for other skills and experience you have that relates to your chosen qualification.
Credit Transfer is available for nationally recognised units of competency that you have already achieved at the same or another registered training organisation. This means that you will not have to complete that unit of competency again as part of your new qualification. You will need to provide evidence to support your request for credit, such as a statement of attainment.
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) provides a process for acknowledging skills and knowledge that you have acquired through previous training, work or life experience. RPL may be used to grant status or credit for part or all of a unit of competency. As part of an RPL process, your registered training organisation will assess your formal or informal training and education, work experience and general life experience against relevant units of competency. You will be asked to provide evidence of your past experience, training or skills relevant to the qualification you want to complete. Your registered training organisation will provide you with information about exactly what is required.
Contact your preferred registered training organisation for advice about your personal circumstances and any Credit Transfer or RPL options available to you.
