What is Recognition of
Prior Learning (RPL)?

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process that evaluates the skills and knowledge you have accumulated through work and life experiences.

RPL involves an assessor evaluating the evidence you supply to determine how it matches the outcomes of your program of study. So for example, if you currently work in an office you may have some of the skills and knowledge required. This is important because it may reduce the amount of time it will take to achieve a qualification.

The evidence can be any combination of formal and informal learning and from any relevant aspect of your professional or personal life.

Qualifications available to RPL at EIM Training:
  • CHC30121 Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care
  • CHC50121 Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care
  • UEE31220 Certificate III in Instrumentation and Control
  • UEE40420 Certificate IV in Electrical – Instrumentation
  • UEE50220 Diploma of Electrical and Instrumentation

How to get your skills recognised in six easy steps.

  1. Contact EIM Training and talk to an assessor
  2. Receive candidate guide
  3. Prepare and submit application
  4. Assessor reviews evidence submitted
  5. Gap training if necessary
  6. Receive your qualification/results
