Recognition of Prior Learning and Credit Transfer
Recognition of prior learning (RPL) is the process of assessing a candidate’s competence based on evidence other than a recent testamur listing identical or equivalent units. Evidence that may be used for recognition includes (but is not limited to)
- older testamur listing identical or equivalent units together with evidence of currency
- current testamur listing similar, but not equivalent, units of competence together with evidence of competence in the gaps between those units and the target units
- evidence of competence gained through informal learning and/or work experience
Credit Transfer is the process of acknowledging successful completion of one or more units of competence with TAFE NSW or any other RTO. To have those units credited towards the current qualification, the student must be able to provide a testamur with transcript of competencies achieved.
If the date of the testamur is more than three years prior to the current enrolment the candidate will need to demonstrate that their competencies are still current. This changes the process from credit transfer to recognition.
Note: For Credit Transfer and RPL - Units are only considered ‘equivalent’ if the current Training Package lists them as such in the mapping of units from the immediately previous version of that Training Package.
