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.
