Find out what your service is worth...
Keep in mind that the level of the qualification you will be eligible for may depend on your rank and length of service. Our qualifications range from Certificate III, all the way up to Post Graduate level (above a Bachelor's degree). The smart money is on choosing the right level that reflects the career you have achieved so far, and the qualification(s) that will take you on to your next career move.
If you are thinking about which qualifications will best fit your situation, reach out to the team here at Churchill and have a chat. Our Military RPL experts are ready to talk to you about your transition, and guide you through the best options for your individual situation.

Defence Case Studies
Wondering how others have used their defence service to get qualified and transition careers? Kenneth Carter recently shared his story about how gaining RPL qualifications was central to his smooth transition from Defence to private sector WHS employment.
WO1 Allison converted a 30 year defence career into nationally recognised qualifications through RPL and walked into a civilian career quickly and easily.
A Skills Assessment is a conversation you have with one of our Skills Recognition Advisors to discuss how Recognition of Prior Learning could work for you.
In this conversation, they will talk with you about your work history, training and experience, and where you want to go in your career.
Based on what you say, they will make recommendations about which qualifications would be most suitable for your specific situation.
After this conversation, you’ll be sent a report within 48 hours which details the qualifications you would be eligible for, and which ones you could be eligible for with a little more online training to fill in any gaps in your knowledge.
Then, you decide how you’d like to proceed. This assessment is all cost-free and obligation-free.
We find that it’s helpful to have the information about your potential so you can make informed decisions, in any case.
After The Skills Assessment
Once you receive the report and decide which qualifications are the best fit with your goals, we can help you with gathering the evidence you need to submit.
We do the mapping for you – this means that we do all the fiddly and complicated work of matching evidence to units of competency within the qualifications.
The whole process takes 14 days, although we do offer a 7-day Fast-Track Service if you need to get a job application in quickly! You receive both paper and electronic copies of your qualifications for your records.
Then, you can go ahead and seek out your dream job, secure in the knowledge that your Defence work has been validated and translated into the nationally recognised qualifications that civilian employers can respect and value.
Since January 2006, we have helped Defence personnel exiting the ADF to translate their service into qualifications that build their careers on Civvy Street. Our team has spent decades in the ADF themselves with active deployments and proud military careers. Churchill’s other point of difference from other providers of RPL is our customer service. When you work with Churchill, you deal with real people, not robots or automated phone menus. These real people are trained and experienced Skills Recognition Advisors who are motivated by getting the best possible outcomes for you, outcomes that align with where you want to go in your career.
Nationally Recognised Qualifications
Are the qualifications I receive nationally recognised qualifications? Yes. Churchill Education is a registered training organisation, RTO:31430. This means that we are regulated by ASQA, the Australian Skills Quality Authority, 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.
We have a range of payment options available for you including: Bank Transfer, Credit Card, Instalment Payment Plans and Finance Options. Find out more here.
