The RPL Process Explained

The process of Skills Recognition and Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is incredibly simple. Mr. GQ from Get Qualified Australia explains the RPL evidence required for Skills Recognition, along with how gap training works.


Hi, this is Mr GQ from Get Qualified Australia, the leading Skills Recognition and RPL company.

Today I want to explain the RPL Process, suitable Evidence and possible Gap Training to you. The Process will always start with an informal, free skills review. This will allow our assessors to determine your eligibility, after reviewing your resume and discussing your work and life experience. Once you have been qualified and wish to proceed, GQ Australia will issue you with an invoice and upon receipt of the payment, all necessary enrolment forms and documents will be sent to you via email. You will need to complete a simple career Self-Assessment checklist, which your assessor can assist you with. The completed documents will then need to be sent back to your assessor together with your evidence. We will discuss what types of evidence a little later. Should you not be able to produce evidence for one or more of the units in the qualification, GQ Australia will provide you with Gap Training options. These units are in most cases completed online, unless practical training and assessment is required. Once completed and submitted, your assessor will assess them and if deemed competent, they will be added into your portfolio. The final step for your assessor is to compile the application and submit it to your chosen RTO for final review and issuance of the certificate.
Now let’s go back to the type of evidence you will need to provide. These documents generally include reference letters, job descriptions, performance appraisals and work samples of your current or previous work experience. Work samples comprise of reports, work sheets, business plans, completed products, emails, photos, videos etc. If you have completed any formal qualifications or attended training sessions, both national and international certificates may support your application. You might even have done voluntary or charity work which may provide evidence for your application. The more evidence you provide, the stronger your application will be. When you complete your Self-Assessment checklist you will see that you will need to map your evidence to the units that make up the chosen qualification.
