Recognition of Prior Learning
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is the process of collecting evidence about previous training and life experience.
A qualified trainer/assessor then makes a judgement, about whether competency has been attained through previous knowledge and life experience.
Under the national standards WARTA must ensure that RPL is offered to all students, on or at enrolment. The RPL process is structured to minimise the time and cost to students. If your application for RPL is successful you will be exempt from some parts of the training.
If you wish to apply for RPL you will need to talk to the Compliance Officer, who will assist you on how to prepare an application.
As a guide, the following documents may provide sufficient evidence for an RPL application:
A fee of $125 per unit of competency applies to RPL applications to cover the costs of assessment and administration. This fee is non-refundable.
Before applying for RPL students should speak to a trainer or the Compliance Officer to discuss their individual experience and availability of evidence.
Under the national standards WARTA is obligated to recognise the Qualifications and Statements of Attainment issued by other Registered Training Organisations (RTOs). Students wishing to apply for a Credit Transfer (CT), must provide evidence in the form of original certificates.
Credit Transfer (CT) is where the unit of competency enrolled in is the same or equivalent to the unit of competency for which a Statement of Attainment has been issued.
The Compliance Officer will review the evidence against the competency requirements for the unit/course. WARTA will require a copy to be kept on the student record.
The following dress standards are required for all training courses conducted on WARTA premises:
