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.

It has all the same requirements as other types of assessment. It involves collecting evidence and making judgments on whether competence has been achieved which can be submitted and assessed completely online and via correspondence.

Evidence can be collected through:
