If you are an experienced aged care worker and would like to complete this higher level certificate, you may be able to do this using RPL.
What is RPL?
Recognition of prior learning (RPL) is a process that assesses your competency—acquired through formal and informal learning—to determine if you meet the requirements for a unit of study.
You can use a variety of documentation to apply for RPL. This includes, but is not limited to:
- records of completed training
- assessment items
- assessment records
- declarations from your employer
Our training manager comes to you workplace to discuss RPL. A nurse educator will then meet with you to discuss what evidence is required to complete the qualification through RPL.
Sometimes there may not be sufficient evidence to complete the entire qualification through RPL. In this case you will be given the option to complete the units of competency that couldn’t be RPL’d through online learning.
