How does the RPL process work?

  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 Recognition 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 if you are able to provide some further evidence (and we’ll share with you what the gaps are and the evidence we’d need); or
    • if training would be your best option. We don’t offer the training so we’ll give you some information about how to locate a training organisation who delivers what you are looking for.
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.
