In the vocational education sector it is possible for students to gain formal recognition of their current skills or to receive further training to update or improve their qualifications.
RMIT offers two services under this scheme:
- Recognition of prior learning (RPL) - where we formally assess your previous work and life experiences, along with any formal, informal or non formal learning, and determine whether this could be worth credit in lieu of study. This means you don’t have to spend time learning things you already know.
- Recognition of current competency (RCC) - where we assess your previously completed accredited qualification in circumstances where it may have expired or where you have not been practicing.
RPL does not include any additional training required to achieve a competency. If you require additional tuition before you can achieve RPL, you can apply for admission to your chosen program.
RPL fees for vocational education
RPL is available as a study mode in all RMIT vocational education courses. Students can apply for RPL for all of the courses in their program of study, from a minimum of one course to a maximum of all courses in the program.
