Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is an assessment process through which the skills, knowledge and work experience of the students can be counted towards the achievement of a qualification or unit of competency. RPL involves a formal assessment process which focuses on a student’s ability to demonstrate that he/she already has the required level of skills, knowledge and work experience to meet the requirements for competency in a unit/s of study within a course offered by APEI. If the evidence provided by a student clearly proves they already have the skills and knowledge relating to a unit of competency, they will receive a credit for that unit and will not be required to study that unit. Please refer to RPL section of this document for information regarding this.
