Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

Use your experience to help achieve your qualification.

What is Recognition of Prior Learning?

Construction Industry Training is a leading provider of training and assessment.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is the formal acknowledgement of the skills, abilities and knowledge that applicants might have obtained as a result of their work and life experience/s, previous training and/or formal education.

Construction Industry Training provide a skills recognition assessment to determine whether your knowledge and level of ability is at an equivalent level in comparison to formal qualifications. This can potentially reduce the amount of study time needed to achieve a qualification, and in some cases may remove the need to study entirely.

Why is Recognition of Prior Learning Helpful?

1. Save Time and Money

If you have gained relevant skills over the course fo your careeer and can provide evidence, you won’t need to relearn these skills as part of our course which will save you time and money.

2. Get your Qualification Sooner

Having our trainers assess your Eligibility for RPL can reduce the overall requirements to get Qualified through Trade Recognition.

3. Improve Employment Prospects

Don’t just rely on your experience. By upskilling and getting qualified you’ll help improve your employment prospects and advance your career.

If you’re considering studying or training to achieve a qualification, you may be able to reduce the amount of time it takes to get your qualification (and in some cases you may not need to study at all). Recognition of Prior Learning is a way for you to have your prior skills and knowledge in a trade or qualification formally recognised. Recognition of Prior Learning can provide enhanced opportunities for those with previous industry, employment or life experience within the sector they would like to become qualified in.
