RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING AND CREDIT TRANSFER
The underlying principle of Nationally Recognised Training is that a learner does not have to repeat training and assessment that has already been undertaken.
ETI has a Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and Credit Transfer Policies and Procedures and can be found at ETI’s website, which outlines in detail processes to be followed for granting recognition and credit transfer. This is supported through the RPL guidelines for this qualification which focus specifically on all units.
Learners are encouraged to apply for RPL prior to or immediately after formal enrolment but prior to the facilitated delivery of units to ensure that they do not miss any training opportunities offered should they be unsuccessful in the RPL process.
Credit Transfer relates to the recognition of learning achieved through formal education and training, and involves assessing a previously completed course or units to see if it provides equivalent learning or competency outcomes to those required within the current course of study. Learners must provide transcripts of results and/or statements of attainment for credit transfer to be assessed.
Where a learner is successful in the RPL or Credit Transfer (CT) application, the units to be undertaken and course duration will be adjusted accordingly.
Where RPL is granted, learners do not have to participate in further training and assessment for skills and knowledge that they already possess.
