Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

What is RPL?

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process which acknowledges the skills and knowledge that a person already has, whether it is gained from life, work, community involvement, home or formal training and study.

The RPL process identifies the relevant knowledge and skills you have and matches this to competencies and elements in the course of study.

The ALC policy for recognising prior learning of its students is outlined in the VET Student Handbook.

Applying for RPL

The VET RPL handbook describes the working of this policy in detail and outlines the process you must go through.
