Students will be given an opportunity for at least two reassessment for any competencies not achieved on the first attempt.

What is Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and Credit Transfer

Students who believe they already have some of the competencies in the course may apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). An essential requirement of RPL is that you can prove that you currently have the required competencies. Competencies for which RPL is being requested may have been developed through formal education and training, through work experience or training or through life experiences.

Credit Transfer means exempting a student from enrolling in and being assessed in a unit or units because they have been granted recognition for having completed the identical unit or units at another Registered Training Organisation. Credit Transfer will be at No cost and Recognition of Prior Learning will attract $200 per unit of competency.

Please refer to College RPL and Credit Transfer Policy for further information.
