Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)
RPL is the acknowledgement of a person's skills and knowledge acquired through previous training, work or life experience, which may be used to grant status or credit in a subject regardless of how and where they were attained, including overseas.
This can include skills from:
* Previous study excluding courses at another VET/TAFE institution, but including courses at school or college,
* through adult education classes or training programs at work;
* Work experience (including both work that is paid and unpaid); and/or
* Life experience (for example leisure pursuits or voluntary work).
RPL is a form of assessment. It is used to determine whether a person has acquired, through formal or informal learning, the skills and experience consistent with the stated competency standards that comprise a qualification. RPL is not time referenced, so there are no parameters on how or when the skills are acquired. However, the skills that have been acquired through life experience etc., must be current and must match the elements and performance criteria contained in the individual unit.
Students seeking RPL need to indicate this on their enrolment form at the time of enrolment.
See the RPL Guide for Applicants for further information on the RPL application process.
Credit Transfer or Recognition of Previous Study
Charles Darwin University as a Registered Training Organisation recognises the Australian Qualifications Framework qualifications and Statement of Attainments issued by any other Australian Registered Training Organisation.
Students are encouraged to submit any requests for credit from previous studies at the time of enrolment, to ensure they are not enrolling in units they may not need to undertake.
In order to apply for exemption/credit transfer from units completed at another training organisation, you will need to complete an Application for Exemption Form available from any campus, centre, or team, or a copy of the form can be obtained from the web.
Your completed Application for Exemption form together with attached documentary evidence (certified copy of Qualification/Statement of Attainment) to support your request for exemption/credit transfer should be submitted directly to the University either in person or by mail. Requests without documentary evidence will not be processed and will be returned to students. There are no fees attached to Credit Transfers.
There are significant opportunities for articulation within and across the service and repair qualifications of the Automotive Industry Retail, Service and Repair Training Package (AUR05). The Training Package provides clear pathways from Certificate I through to the Diploma level. Completion of Certificate II in Automotive Vehicle Servicing (AUR20505) could articulate directly into Certificate III in Automotive Specialist (AUR30605) or Certificate III in Automotive Mechanical Technology (AUR30405).
