Recognition of Prior Learning
What is Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)?
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) converts your existing skills, knowledge and experience, gained through prior work or study, into formal competencies. The end result? Our five-step RPL process allows you to achieve nationally recognised qualifications without having lost time studying something you already know.
RPL means you can gain qualifications simply through providing evidence of relevant knowledge and skills you have gained through previous work. If the RPL process reveals a deficiency in your skill level, we can help by providing training in the relevant qualification.
OPEC College is ideal for first responders and military personnel seeking to gain qualifications to aid transition into an alternate career. Our team possess extensive experience working both within and in collaboration with the Defence and private sector. We understand the skills and knowledge gained across the Defence rank levels, and how to assess and apply this within the RPL process.
Outside of Defence and First Responder communities, OPEC College also caters to people formerly employed in the public or private sector who are looking to gain qualifications in order to progress their career or change their vocation pathway.
Regardless of your employment background, our team are here to streamline the process, providing support, clear communication, comprehensive assessment and training excellence.
