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.
If you wish to apply for RPL we will require an up to date resume detailing your experience, any qualifications you may have, third party testimonials and any further evidence that you may have. We can then advise what is required in order to obtain the qualification and the cost.
If RPL is granted for any of the units in the qualification then an RPL Questionnaire is required to be completed to demonstrate you have the knowledge for the particular unit. This is a requirement by the Training Accreditation Council and the WA Police.
