RPL (Recognition of Prior Learning)

What is RPL?

Recognition of prior learning (RPL), is a process for giving candidates 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 or other activities such as volunteering.

M I RPL’s FREE skills assessment and recognition can fast track your qualification or even award your qualification outright.

How do I get recognised for prior learning?

Kick-start your career and receive qualification recognition through Easy RPL. We offer prior learning assessment and recognition across Australia and it’s easy to apply for RPL online. We look at past jobs, life experience, samples of your work and any industry representative endorsements you might have. We use methods to establish your competency against a national set of standards and offer qualification recognition based of your level of competency (whether you have been formally trained in these skills or not). You can then receive recognition for prior learning by either gaining a full qualification or receiving credit towards one. Start by browsing the recognised prior learning qualifications available and get the recognition you deserve.
