Avoid further study if you already have the skills and knowledge

Assessment Only / Recognition of Prior Learning

Based on your existing knowledge and skills, you may be able to attain Units of Competency or even entire Qualifications without further study.

Assessment Only, also known as Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), may be an option if you already have the knowledge and skills necessary to attain units, skills sets or full qualifications due to your previous work experience or study.

Instead of having to work through the course material and attend classes, you can instead simply provide the evidence that you already meet the training package requirements.

At Australis, we collect this evidence by you completing the same formal assessments you would have done if you had studied with us. We believe this approach is simpler, more robust and more consistent than other methods.


Frequently Asked Questions

Should I do ‘Assessment Only’ or should I study?

Based on feedback from hundreds of graduates over the last decade, many of whom could have used RPL but instead studied, we suggest you study for one simple reason….you will learn something.

We have heard time and again student comments regarding the new learnings attained, the reminder of things forgotten, the awareness of things they did not even know they did not know, and the huge benefits gained from interacting with industry expert trainers and fellow students.

What will I learn if I do ‘Assessment Only’?

Nothing. All you are doing is providing evidence of what you already know.

What evidence do I need to provide?

You need to successfully complete the same formal assessments you would have done if you studied the course with us. We do NOT consider evidence such as resumes, position descriptions, testimonials and the like.

Please note some assessments do allow you to leverage evidence you may have created in your workplace. For example, if an assessment required you to create a business plan, you could submit one you previously created.

What about credit transfer?

Credit transfer is where you have already completed a specific unit with a Registered Training Organisation, and present evidence of this to us. This provides you with credit towards any qualification which contains that unit, avoiding the need to study or be assessed on that unit again.

How much does it cost?

The cost varies for each unit but is less than the full course as you are not paying for content or trainers (or for assessments you may not even do). For costs please refer to the relevant course pages, or contact the team as shown below.
