Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and Credit Transfer (CT)

In accordance with the requirements of the Standards for Registered Training Organisations 2015, EduNex ensures that all Learners have an equitable opportunity to have their skills, which may have been gained through formal and informal education and training, work experience and life experience, assessed and formally recognised, along with requirements by industry for currency of skills and certification.  Informal education and training, in addition to life experience also forms part of the Volume of Learning for students when participating in the overall program. EduNex mutually recognises verified Statement(s) of Attainment and Qualifications issued by other Registered Training Organisations.

Learners are able to have their competency from prior learning and work experience recognised in this qualification through the following arrangements:

Learners who gave gained knowledge and skills through work, life experience, training or education may be able to undertake a process of recognition. By going through a recognition process a Learner may be able to gain recognition for one or several units of competency or gain an entire qualification without having to attend / undertake training. As part of the Enrolment process, a Learners work and education history is discussed.

The idea of recognition is to accept and reward knowledge and skills that have been achieved in a wide variety of ways. This process is quicker than undertaking training and may be cost effective.

Recognition can occur through:

  • Credit Transfer (CT)
  • Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

What is Recognition?

Recognition involves the assessment of previously unrecognised skills and knowledge that an individual has achieved outside the formal education and training system. Recognition assesses this unrecognised learning against the requirements of a unit of competence, in respect of both entry requirements and outcomes to be achieved. By removing the need for duplication of learning, recognition encourages an individual to continue upgrading their skills and knowledge through structured education and training towards formal qualifications and improved employment outcomes. This has benefits for the individual and industry. Most importantly, it should be noted that recognition is just another form of assessment.

Credit Transfer (CT)

Credit Transfer is the recognition of learning achieved through formal education and training. Under the Standards for Registered Training Organisations2015, units of competency issued by any RTO are to be accepted and recognised by all other RTOs. Credit Transfer allows a student to be issued a unit of competency based on successful completion of the unit which has been previously awarded. 

If you are seeking credit transfer you are required to present your Statement of Attainment or Qualification with a record of results for examination to EduNex Training. These transcripts will provide the detail of what units of competence you have been previously issued. You must provide satisfactory evidence that the Statement of Attainment or qualification is authentic, is yours and that it has been issued by an Australian RTO.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

Is awarded to individuals who are able to demonstrate satisfactory achievement of the required competency standards or learning outcomes for the unit of competency.

The RPL process is interactive and personal so as to meet the needs of the Learner.

An initial interview is conducted with an assessor to determine whether the Learner is a suitable candidate for RPL.

The Learner will need to provide evidence to demonstrate that they are currently competent against the endorsed industry competency standards.

Please refer to the STUDENT HANDBOOK for detailed information about evidence requirements and guidelines for Recognition of Prior Learning and Credit Transfer.
