RPL is an assessment process that acknowledges an individual’s prior learning, experience, skills and knowledge in the working environment where it is relevant to their chosen qualification. An RTO can provide a credit against units of competency, often shorting the time required to complete a qualification.
What does that mean? If units are able to be recognised in your chosen course that means you won’t have to do them so less time for your course. Your qualification can be fast-tracked so instead of it taking a year it may only take a few months! *
