Recognition of Prior Learning
Skills Recognition seeks to prove that the applicant already has acquired skills and knowledge equivalent to the skills and knowledge being assessed in a recognised course or unit of competency.
The outcome of a successful Skills Recognition application is recognition that the applicant has already achieved the required skills and knowledge and thus does not have to demonstrate these skills or knowledge again.
The most practical application of this is a reduction in a training program.
Skills Recognition will consider formal education such as other Nationally recognised training courses. Work experience general life skills, e.g. a hobby in personal computers may provide RPL in computing or computing related courses.
