Upskilled recognises that many participants
acquire vocational skills from a variety of different sources
outside of formal training. These skills are valid, irrespective of
how they were acquired.
Participants who believe they have existing
skills and knowledge that would be covered in an Upskilled training
program should apply at time of enrolment to have their expertise
assessed and, where appropriate, to have their particular training
Participants can make an application for RPL at
any time during their training program. An RPL application pack is
available from the National Education and Compliance Manager.
Recognition of other qualifications
All qualifications and statements of attainment
issued by other Registered Training Organisations are fully
recognised by Upskilled. Where appropriate, these can be used to
reduce a training program being offered by Upskilled.
Participants seeking recognition for other
qualifications are required to provide original certificates or
certified copies to the Head Trainer or, in some cases, to the
course trainer, who will make note of the qualification. This
process is typically observed where participants produce a
prerequisite qualification for an Upskilled course they are wishing
Credit Transfer Policy
Credit Transfer is available to participants
enrolling in any Upskilled course program. Credit Transfer involves
the awarding of credit towards a qualification, granted to
participants on the basis of outcomes gained through participation
in courses with another RTO.
