RPL Ready

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is the process of gaining a qualification, or part of a qualification, by recognising your existing skills and knowledge gained through work and experience. Perhaps you have a qualification gained overseas that is not recognised in Australia or have years of practical experience? Through RPL Ready, we can recognise your existing skills and help you gain a nationally accredited qualification. Take our Free Skills Assessment to get started!


We offer this process to you through a combination of online and direct contact from your RPL Trainer/ Assessor. Your online component is set up for you to upload all of your evidence that you have collected over time and we provide online tables for referencing examples of evidence. Your RPL Support Officer will guide and support you through this process and liaise with you for any exceptions. Following completion of the evidence collection, the Trainer/ Assessor will conduct the competency conversation and remaining steps.

  1. Take our Free Skills Assessment by clicking on the button below to determine your training plan.

  2. Provide your personal portfolio such as CV, resume, copies of qualifications etc.

  3. Collect your evidence for each unit of competency using our table guides and our RPL Support Officer will guide you.

  4. Undertake Competency Conversation with your Trainer/Assessor and submit supporting evidence.

  5. Ask a Referee for a Testimonial using our template.

  6. Trainer/Assessor will assess the entire submission of evidence.

  7. If there are any gaps, Trainer/Assessor will establish how this can be achieved with you.

  8. Issue Qualification or Statement of Attainment.

In order to estimate the amount of experience required we have a guide below of entry requirements for skills recognition against each level qualification. This is typically the amount of time you have worked in the industry you are gaining recognition for.

  • Certificate III - Employed in your industry for at least 1-2 years
  • Certificate IV - Employed in your industry for at least 2-3 years and at least 1 year in a supervisory or management role
  • Diploma - Employed in your industry for over 3 years and at least 2 year in a management role
The process is designed to be a self-paced program and generally will take no longer than 3 months or 6 months if gap training is required.
  • Certificate III


  • Certificate IV


  • Diploma
