Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is an assessment process that assesses an individual’s non-formal and informal learning to determine the extent to which that individual has achieved the required competency outcomes.
Under the principle of RPL or Current Competence (RCC), trainees can be assessed as fully or partially competent, providing they can produce supporting evidence. As an RTO, we are required to advise trainees of their right to claim for recognition on enrolment, and to provide them with adequate information and support for their application.
It has all the same requirements as other types of assessment. It involves collecting evidence and making judgements on whether competence has been achieved. Evidence can be collected through :
Resume which shows previous or current work history
Previously attained qualifications
Examination of work samples
Examination of relevant documents
If you decide to apply for RPL or RCC, you may request to complete the Recognition Application Form and provide documentary evidence to support your claim, as set out on the form. This evidence needs to be:
Valid – it must cover the broad range of required knowledge and skills
Reliable – the evidence must be authentic, i.e. the trainee’s own work
Current and transferable – the skills once obtained must not have been affected by lack of practice, or changes in technology; and
Sufficient – the evidence must be sufficient to demonstrate full competence in the particular area of work

Under the Australian Quality Training Framework standards, a qualification or Statement of Attainment issued by a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) to a trainee must be recognised by another RTO.
This means that any certificates issued by Core Security Training will be recognised by any other RTO in Australia. Likewise, if a trainee has been issued with a qualification or statement of attainment by another RTO, Core Security Training is obliged to recognise this. Core Security Training is not required to re-issue a qualification or statement of attainment awarded by other providers for an equivalent qualification, or the same units of competence.
