Did you know you can receive a qualification without undergoing formal training?
Skills Recognition is a process that allows you to seek and gain recognition for your skills, no matter where or how these were acquired. It could be through work experience, education, training or life experience.
When you apply for Skills Recognition you compare the things you have learnt with the requirements of the units in the course. Skills Recognition can give you many benefits and opportunities. If you can demonstrate that you have already achieved the outcomes of the unit in a qualification, you can be given recognition for that and you may not need to attend classes.
Skills Recognition processes include:
• Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)
• Recognition of current competencies
• Credit transfer
• RPL for entry
• Overseas equivalence
• Subject exemptions
For more information, ask your lecturer about the Skills Recognition process.
