Yes. All of our qualifications are issued by RTOs which have been approved by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) to deliver nationally recognised qualifications that meet national quality assurance requirements. This means that they are recognised by industry and educational institutions in all Australian states and territories as conforming to the required competency standards.

Yes. Because all of our qualifications are issued by reputable RTOs and contain the nationally recognised training logo, they each verify that a candidate has met the Units of Competency required to work in their industry occupation. These qualifications do not indicate how you have obtained the qualification (i.e. through RPL), and are exactly the same as a qualification received from a training provider through any other means.

Get Qualified Australia allows you up 3 months to complete the RPL process, however the actual duration is dependent on the length of time it takes you to provide your evidence. While this is generally 4 weeks, the quicker you submit your evidence, the sooner the process will be completed.

Once all the required evidence has been submitted and your evidence has been assessed, the RTO will then review and issue your qualification within 2-4 weeks, provided that no further evidence is required. This makes it possible for you to achieve your qualification in as little as 1 month, and up to 3 months.

Requests for extensions beyond the allotted 3 month period will be considered on an individual case basis.

While our Customer Service Agents will determine the best evidence for your portfolio, evidence generally takes the form of:

  • Resume/CV
  • References
  • Performance Appraisals
  • Portfolio/work samples
  • Photographic and video evidence
  • Education, training and qualifications
  • Job Description
  • Policies and Procedures
  • Workplace communication
  • Bookkeeping and financial records

The options are really endless. Most people use qualifications to enhance their careers, from achieving a promotion or pay rise, to climbing organisational ranks and getting new job opportunities. In fact, qualifications have shown to increase employability by 11%, and result in promotions 42% of the time.

Other people might use their qualification to improve visa or migration prospects, access postgraduate study, open up their own businesses, meet regulatory requirements, or obtain a licence in their industry or occupation.

Please note that while our qualifications may help you meet minimum licensing requirements, only your state’s relevant licensing authority may issue you your licence. For more information about trades licensing, click here.
