Alternatively you may choose to have your skills assessed under the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) system through the process of Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL).
Recognition of Prior Learning allows a qualified assessor, associated with a Registered Training Organisation (RTO), to assess your existing knowledge and skills in order to determine if you meet the competency requirements of a particular unit and/or qualification.
