Recognition Of Prior Learning (RPL) or Credit Transfer (CT)

Click here for GET Educations RPL Policies and procedures

Recognition of prior learning (RPL) is a method of assessing your current skills and knowledge that may have been acquired through formal training and / or via informal learning such as experience you gained from work or non-formal such as a non-accredited qualification.
It is an alternative to coursework or class attendance. If you have existing skills or knowledge RPL can help reduce coursework required to complete a qualification.
We match your existing skills and knowledge against the course. We determine what learning, skills and knowledge you are able to demonstrate against the unit or qualification you’d like to complete. Then we assess your competence using the evidence you’ve provided. Where the evidence proves your competence it reduces or eliminates the need for coursework and enables you to complete your course quicker.

Credit Transfer (CT) is the recognition of formal training completed through another registered training organisation (RTO).  If you have covered any of the same unit/s of study as one of our courses, then your successful result can be transferred to another course. This would eliminate the need for you to re-complete this requirement. This process is completed by matching competencies between qualifications and ensuring that these outcomes are equivalent.

If you feel that RPL or CT may be right for you, then please contact us and we can talk you through your options, answer any questions you have and let you know where to go from here.  If you would like to apply for Recognition of Prior Learning or Credit Transfer, we will go through the process and associated costs with you step-by-step.
