You may be able to have your exisiting skills & knowledge recognised with RPL or Credit Transfer! 

Your life and work experience, past education or industry training could qualify you for RPL. At MyPath Education we recognise that not all learning is done in a formal environment, so our courses are structured to take account of any relevant skills, knowledge or experience that you may already have.

All students enrolled with MyPath Education who consider that they have, and can demonstrate current skills and knowledge in the individual units of competency in the program in which they intend to enrol may be eligible for  ‘Recognition;’ through ‘Recognition of prior learning or Credit transfer, MyPath Education recognises qualifications and /or Statements of Attainment issued by other RTOs. 

What is RPL?

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is the formal acknowledgment of current skills and knowledge regardless of when, where and how they are obtained and can potentially include:

  • Previous work experience or skills gained on site
  • Unpaid work experience
  • Life experience

RPL assessment can include workplace observation, interviews, and documented evidence.

How can RPL help?

Recognition of prior learning serves you in a number of ways:

  • Provide the basis for a full or part qualification for existing skills
  • Help avoid duplication of training 
  • Qualify as the on-the-job component of a course or unit
  • Be used to more clearly identify training gaps
  • Provide a pathway to higher qualifications and more career opportunities
  • Potentially reduce the cost of training

To apply for RPL, 

  • Obtain and complete an  application form from Student Services 
  • Commence collecting the evidence that demonstrates your previous experience, learning and skills 

For Further information see our Student handbook.

What is credit transfer?

Credit transfer allows a student to be awarded a unit of competency towards completion of a qualification, based on completing that same unit with another RTO.

To apply for credit transfer,

  • Obtain and complete an application form from Student Services
  • You will need to provide, along with your completed application, the original statement(s) of attainment or qualification(s) for our verification or provide JP certified copies
