Delivery & Assessment
Each unit includes some reading materials and a series of assessment activities.
Typically, this will include:
 Written questions
 Case studies or practical activities that can be based on real or simulated work environments
 Projects requiring you to demonstrate that you can apply the knowledge and skills
 Apply RPL evidence

Everyone learns at different rates however we estimate 10-12 hours to complete each unit within a
Certificate IV. You have access to your trainer through email or phone, or you may choose to make an appointment.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) or Credit Transfer
For each unit of competency, candidates will be given the option to demonstrate competency through a combination of any of the following:
 Written or verbal questions demonstrating the required knowledge
 Case studies or practical activities demonstrating the required skills
 Projects based on a real or simulated workplace
 Portfolio of evidence which may include:
 Prior qualifications, both accredited and non-accredited
 Employment history such as position descriptions and performance appraisals
 Industry appointments such as board and committee roles
 Publications and journals
 Samples of work and other relevant documents, photos, videos, etc.
 Testimonials and other references from verifiable sources

Each candidate is assessed individually. Our assessment team will validate the evidence supplied and
conduct mapping against the evidence requirements for each unit. Where required, assessors will request additional evidence and provide guidance on suitable types of evidence for the candidate to supply. (RPL Fee is priced per unit $150 incl. skill gap training - $1,800 for full RPL course no skill gap training).

Blended Study
Recognition of Prior Learning is determined at unit level so if you have some relevant skills and experience you may be able to complete some units through RPL and others online or workplace.
