    Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

    RPL is a form of assessment that assesses the competency of an individual that may have been achieved through formal or non-formal learning. This is used to determine the extent to which the person meets the requirements specified in the training package or accredited course.

    RPL should not be confused with providing credit for prior studies, which is not a form of assessment – it is recognising the equivalence of studies previously undertaken and completed successfully. Where a student presents evidence that they have completed one or more units or modules through another RTO or AQF authorised issuing organisation (e.g. AQF certification documentation or an authenticated VET transcript), the RTO must accept and provide credit for the unit(s) or module(s) completed.Learners must not be required to repeat any unit or module in which they have already been assessed as competent. The only exception is when doing so is a license condition or a regulatory requirement.

    Please note that there is a $250.00 RPL fee to be paid prior to your RPL application being reviewed.

    This is not an extra cost but simply comes off the cost of the full RPL price or the cost of the course should you be required to do some or all of the units. This is called ‘gap-training’.

    Fee Structure

    The full cost of RPL for the Certificate IV Government Investigations is broken down as follows:

    Application Fee: $250.00 (non-refundable)

    RPL fee $700.00

    Total: $950.00 (Full RPL price where no gap training is required)

    Gap training is $ 75.00 per unit

    Please note that by paying your application fee this does not guarantee your RPL application will be successful; it is your responsibility as the applicant to provide sufficient evidence to support your claim that you already possess the skills and knowledge of the units you are applying for.

    Paragon Training will assess your evidence and provide you with our opinion as to whether you will be likely to have enough evidence to succeed in ‘full RPL’ for a qualification where no training is required. The decision will then be yours as to how you continue.

    Please note that any ‘additional’ units required for ‘Gap Training’ will be charged at a rate of $75.00 per unit.

    If you wish to proceed then we will require the following:

    • Enrolment Form
    • Photo Identification
    • Current resume (compulsory)
    • Copies of any previous qualifications
    • Employee or third party references
    • Application Fee as explained above

    Once we have received the application fee we will provide you with the RPL kit in hard copy or by email which consists of RPL questions to demonstrate required knowledge and a Candidate kit to demonstrate experience, skills and further qualifications that you may have.
