Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

Recognition of Prior Learning is a process through which various forms of evidence of learning (formal and informal) is collected and benchmarked against the requirements of the units of competency that make up a qualification. 

At Future Academy, the process starts with an interview of the candidate in order to determine his/her eligibility for RPL. Afterwards, with the assistance of a qualified trainer and assessor, the candidate works on gathering all the necessary pieces of evidence as set about in the qualification’s RPL kit. 

For more information on the RPL process, please contact us on info@futureacademy.edu.au or 1300 827 188.
