What is RPL?

RPL (Recognition of Prior Learning) assesses your competency(s) that may have been acquired through formal, non-formal and informal learning or direct work experience to determine if you meet the required skills and knowledge specified in a training package or VET accredited courses.

You can apply for RPL

  • If you are over the age of 18 years of age or older with at least one year current, relevant working experience.
  • If you have attained skills, knowledge and experience gained from working in the health industry.
  • If you have any prior learning should have been acquired in one or more of the following ways: workplace learning, informal study for recreational/personal interest purposes, company/industry based training, working with experts, or life experience.
  • If you have any experience or overseas qualification can get nationally recognised qualification.
  • If you feel that your prior learning meets the prescribed requirements of the equivalent module offered by HCI. This could consequently earn you a module credit.
  • If you feel you comply with all the admission requirements of the qualification for which you wish to apply for an RPL credit, please refer to course admission requirements to know more.

What is Credit Transfer?

Credit transfer applies where students have completed units of study at another TAFE College or Registered Training Organisation, including IHNA, that meet the requirements of another qualification or the applicable training package. Credit will be granted in accordance with the Certification, Issuing and Recognition of Qualifications and Statements of Attainment. There is no fee to assess a Credit Transfer.

You can apply for CT

  • If you have completed part, or all, of an accredited qualification.
  • If you completed an accredited qualification but have not been practising recently or your accreditation has expired.
  • If you feel you comply with all the admission requirements of the qualification for which you wish to apply for an CT, please refer to course admission requirements to know more.

If your RPL application is successful:

  • You do not have to attend any training in knowledge and skills you already possess
  • You can save time, by either not needing to attend any training sessions or attending a reduced number of classes to address the identified gap training requirements
  • You can complete your qualification in a comparatively shorter time

If your CT is successful:

  • You’ll save money on the units that were already done.
  • You will save time on the subjects that were a part of your previous qualification.
