Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)


Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is the process by which your existing skills, knowledge and experience gained throughout your life – regardless of how they have been acquired – are recognised towards the achievement of a nationally recognised Qualification or Unit of Competency.

You may seek RPL for any or all of the Units of Competency of the qualifications Procare group has on scope.

RPL must meet all requirements of the Training package and be conducted in accordance to the Rules of Evidence (valid, sufficient, current and authentic) and the Principles of Assessment (valid, reliable, flexible and fair). An RPL Candidate must demonstrate currency of skills and knowledge in the last two years. Evidence must also support workplace and current regulatory requirements.

If the evidence provided for RPL is satisfactory for all the Units of the Qualification then you will be deemed Competent, and awarded the Qualification you have applied for. If you achieve competence in less than the required Units you will be awarded a Statement of Attainment for the Units you have demonstrated competence in. You may then choose to complete the remaining units self paced.

Please note:

There is a deposit of $200 required to be lodged with an RPL Self-Assessment Kit application being considered.

If your RPL claim is successful, the $200 will be deducted from your course fees, however, if your RPL claim is not successful, the $200 is not refundable and will be considered as assessment fees for the RPL delivery process.

Costs associated with an RPL claim will be dependent on the outcome of the assessment.

For more information please contact [email protected] for an RPL kit for the qualification you are interested in.

Recognition of Prior Learning is for those who hold relevant qualifications, have completed relevant training courses and or have current sufficient industry experience.

Prices vary depending on the RPL outcome. The initial RPL assessment fee is $200, the remaining price will be confirmed after the assessment of your evidence, depending on if you are granted full RPL or partial RPL.
