Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is the process by which your existing skills, knowledge and experience gained throughout your life, regardless of how they have been acquired, are recognised towards the achievement of a nationally recognised qualification or statement of attainment.

Your skills will need to be assessed against national standards and this is done by a qualified trainer and assessor.

The benefits of recognition for you are:

  • Recognition of your current skills
  • Saves time in achieving a qualification
  • Identifies gaps in your knowledge and skills and therefore identifies the learning that needs to occur.

Forsythes Training will provide you with an RPL Kit which is designed for use for TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment. You must nominate in the kit the qualification and units of competency that you are applying for. Your evidence needs to demonstrate your work, experience, knowledge, skills and ability to apply these in a workplace environment.

The RPL process is a streamlined process which does not rely solely on documentary evidence. It uses a combination of questioning, practical assessment and supporting evidence to provide evidence of your competence.

Forsythes Training has included in this RPL Kit the Units of Competency that are offered in their TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment.

If participants would like to choose to apply for the one unit elective they can pick in this qualification that is not included in this RPL Kit, then they are to contact the Forsythes Compliance Manager on (02) 49 220 122 who will be happy to assist them with their application for RPL in line with the Training Package rules.

Forsythes Training offers the RPL process that will give trainers and other professionals involved in training and assessment the most up to date training qualification.
