Not everyone has the same opportunities when it comes to receiving formal education or training. Some people gain their skills in other ways, such as non-formal study or previous work experience. Take for example those who serve in the military. They acquire skills in security & risk management or human resources management; however, they don’t have recognised qualifications for these abilities.
Does this sound like you? You still have a chance to have your knowledge, skills, and work experience formally recognised through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). We use this assessment process to evaluate an individual’s skills, converting them into nationally recognised qualifications.
How can you obtain an assessment for Recognition of Prior Learning?
- Understand the process
Gaining qualifications through Recognition of Prior Learningis not as easy as it sounds, but it is a simple process. First, your experiences must match the learning outcomes of a specific course. For example, if you wish to gain recognition in Work Health and Safety, you need the appropriate knowledge and training to pass the assessment.
Despite the demanding process, obtaining RPL qualifications is more convenient than undergoing a full training course or program. An extended period of study may not be for you, especially if you wish to enter into a new career as soon as possible. RPL is there to help you achieve your goals much quicker.
- Look for reliable providers
Not every Recognition of Prior Learning provider offers high-quality services. If you want to receive your qualifications in the shortest possible time, look for an organisation that places candidates at the top of its priority list.
You can also find providers that conduct free assessments, eliminating any financial problems you might be experiencing.
- Consider alternatives
RPL qualifications are great for people who seek to further their careers quickly without worrying about additional training. However, if you want to gain even more qualifications, you can opt for formal training programs and obtain certificates or diplomas depending on your career choice.
