Recognition of Prior Learning

What is Recognition of Prior Learning?

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is an assessment pathway you can utilise to recognise your skills, knowledge and experience gained through work experience, life experience, training courses and work based training. This is assessed against the evidence requirements of one or more units of competency for your full or part qualification.

RPL is a cost-effective way of achieving your qualification, allowing you to save a substantial amount of your course fees.

Because you’re not studying an entire course, but rather undergoing skills recognition, you only pay for the service of recognition provided and the cost of the qualification.

Start with a simple TAAB Self-Assessment checklist. Next, we’ll work with you to gather your supporting evidence. Going through all your work experience and determining suitable evidence can be hard. We strive to make it easier – we’ll team you up with one our RPL trainer assessors to help you along the way.

After you have compiled together the evidence, post/send your portfolio of evidence to us and your trainer/assessor will assess the information against the unit requirements. If you meet the requirements of each unit, you will be issued with your Nationally Recognised Qualification (Statement of Attainment for part qualification).

If there are any deficits in your evidence, your qualified trainer and assessor from TAAB will assist you with gap training.
