Recognition of Prior Learning with the Australian Institute of Accredited Training

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)
means an assessment process that assesses the competency/s of an individual that may have been acquired through formal, non-formal and informal learning to
determine the extent to which that individual meets the requirements specified in the training package or VET accredited courses.

·       formal learning refers to learning that takes place through a structured program of instruction and is linked to the attainment of an AQF qualification or statement of
attainment (for example, a certificate, diploma or university degree);

·       non-formal
learning refers to learning that takes place through a structured program of instruction, but does not lead to the attainment of an AQF qualification or statement of attainment (for example, in-house professional development programs conducted by a business); and

·       informal learning refers to learning that results through experience of work-related, social, family, hobby or leisure activities (for example the acquisition of interpersonal skills developed through several years as a sales representative).

RPL recognises this prior knowledge and experience and measures it against the course in which candidate is enrolled.  A learner possessingsome of the skills and/or knowledge required in the course may not need to complete all of its units.

  • Design a competency based learning program within an industry you are familiar with. This learning program should be based on a minimum of 3 units of competency, to be delivered to a target group in the workplace. The duration of the learning program must be sufficient to cover all performance criteria of the units. As a guide, the minimum duration should be 24 hours. Because you are required to deliver a group-based training session based on one of the units in this program, include units you are familiar with and are likely to train at work.
  • Complete a hazard identification checklist of the venue where you will be training. You may use your organisation’s hazard identification documentation such as a Take 5 or a Job Hazard Analysis.
  • Deliver 2 consecutive presentations totalling at least 80 minutes in duration. The deliveries should be presented at your workplace and observed by your workplace supervisor. If you do not have a workplace, we will assist you in accessing an operating training and assessment environment or simulated environment. Although the unit BSBCMM401 does not specify a time and is performance based, industry dictates a presentation session to be at least 40 minutes in duration. Your workplace supervisor submits a 3rd party report based on your performance. The supervisor is not to assess but to provide important feedback of your performance using a template supplied by us in your assessment workbook.
  • Develop and conduct a work-based learning pathway for an individual at your workplace. This work-based learning pathway must be contextualised to the specific needs of an individual in your workplace. It must incorporate the coaching of at least two different work skills. The work-based learning pathway must identify and address core LLN issues in training at a workplace. The work-based learning pathway should span over at least 2 days.
