Recognition Of Prior Learning (RPL)

If you have previously completed units from a vocational qualification that can be matched to units on the qualification you would like to register for, then you may be eligible for RPL.

We will require a full copy of your certificate(s) – including details of the qualification and the units, components or modules you completed. Requests for RPL will need to be made before registration for a qualification. 

Our assessment will include considering the currency; how recently it was achieved and validity; how well the learning outcomes and assessment criteria of your previous qualifications or achievements match those within the qualification you are interested in.

If we approve RPL, we will also quote an individually adjusted price for your vocational qualification.

If you feel you may be eligible for RPL please email VQAC letting us know which qualification you are interested in and include a copy of your certificate/s, which must include unit details. VQAC will then make an assessment for possible RPL.
