Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is an assessment process that assess the competency of an individual that may have been acquired through formal, non-formal and informal learning to determine the extent to which that individual meets the requirements specified in the training package or VET accredited course for which RPL is sought. Where RPL is granted you will be considered to have already successfully completed the unit(s) of competency, and will not have to participate in training or assessment activities for that unit(s).

These experiences are measured against the qualification/unit in which you have applied for recognition.
