Top 5 Police RPL Qualifications

When you’re in the job, all the police training you have done means something. But when you start looking at getting out, you realise there’s a whole other language in job ads – and that mainstream qualifications matter. You start wondering, how will your policing experience stack up outside of the job?

Here’s the good news. You’ve got the sort of skills and knowledge that employers value. Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) translates your policing experience into the qualifications that make sense in a civilian world.

Why RPL with Churchill?

The process of converting police experience into qualifications is something we have done since 2006. Ever since our Co-Founder, Randall Smith came to his own career crossroads and found himself with sixteen years of service but no qualifications that meant anything outside of the police.

It was Randall’s experience that drove him to streamline the Recognition of Prior Learning process, to ensure that all those police courses you have completed, the shifts you have worked, and the promotions you have earned are fully recognised in nationally accredited qualifications.

With 12 years experience helping police get qualified, we have also built up a wide range of available qualifications that will build your career path. From Certificate level all the way up to Graduate Diploma (above a Bachelor degree). We spend the time talking with you about the career you have and the career you want.

Together we can design a plan for your future and use Recognition of Prior Learning to leverage your experience, and get you qualified. Save your time, your money and avoid the frustration by speaking to someone who understands your police career today.

RPL Process

RPL Process

How does the RPL process work?

  1. We conduct a free preliminary skills assessment and give you a report
  2. You tell us the qualifications you want and provide evidence
  3. You receive nationally recognised qualifications!

Let’s step this out a bit more:

Step 1. We conduct a free preliminary skills assessment and give you a report.

The RPL process begins with a conversation with one of our Skills Advisors.

  • You tell us what you’re looking for and where you want to go
  • You provide a few easily accessible documents
  • You’ll be sent a report within 48 hours. This will include a breakdown of costs involved and lists the qualifications:

    ○ You could be eligible for right now
    ○ You could be eligible for with a little more online gap training.

This is cost-free and obligation-free.

Step 2. You tell us the qualifications you want and provide evidence.

You can make an informed decision about which qualifications are best for you and your career. Once this is confirmed, we can complete the process.

  • We tell you exactly what evidence we need to establish your competency in the units that make up a qualification
  • You provide your evidence, then you can sit back and relax!
  • We match the evidence to the units. This is called mapping. Other providers may get you to do this yourself.
Step 3. You receive nationally recognised qualifications!

Congratulations! Your experience has been validated and translated into nationally recognised qualifications.

  • To save you time, we submit all the paperwork to the government for you. This formalises your qualifications.
  • You receive your qualifications though both email and post, within 14 days. Or, with our VIP Fast-Track Service, you can have them in just 7 days.
Nationally Recognised Qualifications

Nationally Recognised Qualifications

Are RPL qualifications nationally recognised? Yes.

Churchill Education is a registered training organisation, RTO:31430. This means that we are regulated by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA), the Australian Government regulatory body for the VET sector.

The qualifications that we offer are nationally recognised, and issued under the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF). Accordingly, they’re exactly the same as those granted by other educational institutions such as TAFE.
