We understand that you may already have many skills and areas of expertise that you have obtained in different ways and these are recognised through our Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) process.
ALA has developed a streamlined, online, self-evaluation RPL process for this course. The Participant Handbook, available on the ALA website and Training Portal, provides more information about our RPL process. Alternatively, you can contact ALA to discuss your RPL options.
Credit transfer is the recognition of learning achieved through formal education and training.
Under the Standards for Registered Training Organisations, ALA accepts and provides credit to learners for units of competency and/or modules (unless licensing or regulatory requirements prevent this) where these are evidenced by:
Credit transfer allows the unit of competency previously achieved by a participant to be recognised when they are enrolling in a related course where those units can assist them in meeting the requirements for a qualification. It is important to note that credit transfer is not recognition of prior learning (RPL) and cannot be granted for a full qualification (enrolment / admin costs may apply). RPL is assessment and is addressed within the RPL section.
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process whereby competency acquired through education, training, work experience, previous or current work and/or life experience may be formally recognised. It is an assessment process that recognises your current skills and experience, regardless of where and when the learning occurred. It is the formal acknowledgement of a person’s current skills and knowledge, no matter how, when or where the learning occurred.
Recognition of Current Competencies (RCC) allows for acknowledgement and documentation of an individual’s current knowledge and skills without limiting the means by which the knowledge and skills may have been gained.
RPL/RCC are based on the understanding that people learn in different ways. It acknowledges that people learn through work experience, life skills and experience, as well as by education and training, be this informal or formal.
RPL/RCC takes into account a person’s acquired knowledge and skills plus experiences to provide credit towards formal qualification.
The ALA has a very streamlined RPL process online, which allows you to:
