Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

The Australian Institute of Workplace Learning is committed to the concept of lifelong learning, i.e. the ability of a person to be able to continually build on their own knowledge through formal and workplace learning throughout their lifetime. The Australian Institute of Workplace Learning is pleased to be able to offer a service whereby we can have professional staff determine existing formally (and sometimes informally) learned knowledge in a particular area.

This process is called Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). Once your existing learning has been determined you are on your way to increasing your knowledge without having to re-learn what you already know.

Credit Transfer

Credit transfer is the recognition of learning achieved through formal education and training. Under the Australian VET Framework, qualifications and statements of attainment issued by any RTO are to be accepted and recognised by all other RTOs such as Australian Institute of Workplace Learning. Credit Transfer allows a student to be awarded a unit of competency based on successful completion of the unit which has been previously awarded.

Support Services (Including LL&N and Reasonable Adjustment)

Please see the Australian Institute of Workplacr Learning's Additional Support Policy for more information on educational and support services available for you.
