It’s based on the premise that you do not need to undertake training for skills you already possess. Your current skills and knowledge may have been obtained through: Formal training, work experience or life experience. The RPL application process requires you to provide evidence of, or demonstrate, your current ability to perform the requirements of a subject(s) within your course. If you can show that you have the required skills or knowledge then you will be granted RPL, and exempt from completing the work required for that subject.
