Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is the formal acknowledgement of skills, knowledge and competencies obtained through:
- Formal or informal training and education
- Work experience
- Life experience
The process requires the candidate to present and submit the evidence whereby a judgement can be made by an assessor panel, against the requirements of one or more units of competence or modules. The judgement is made on evidence provided by the candidate based on their skills and knowledge previously gained through work, study, life and other experiences.
It is essential to demonstrate that the evidence submitted by the candidate is of their own work for the success of the RPL application. The judgement made on successful RPL assessment can grant a pathway to certification programs from TAU.
