Recognition of prior learning

Everyone is entitled to an opportunity to have their skills and knowledge recognised through a recognition of prior learning (RPL) process in order to gain formal qualifications.

All nationally recognised qualifications in Australia are based on demonstrating competence against set criteria. The assessment process is designed to assess evidence of the learning that has occurred, in order to ensure that the requirements of the course or qualification you are seeking recognition in, have been evidenced.

The purpose of this information is to assist you in determining if you may be a candidate for recognition and in addition, to help you compile a portfolio of evidence in order to undertake a recognition assessment.

See 2.6 Recognition of Prior Learning from the ANMEC HERC Policy Manual.
