What is RPL?

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) programs are available to people currently working in the industry that have not had their skills, knowledge and experience formally recognised.

RPL is an assessment process that provides candidates with credit for skills, knowledge and experience gained through working and learning. It can be gained at any stage of their lives, through formal and informal learning, in Australia or overseas, through work activities.

ACFA also offer RPL for the Kitchen, Bathroom, Laundry Renovators (KBLR) Licence.
