Recognition of Prior Learning
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is the formal recognition that your current knowledge and skills meet the requirements of a given unit of competency, for example CPPDSM4003A Appraise Property. It does not matter how you achieved your current level of knowledge and competence – formal training, on-the-job training, self study, work experience, life experience.
What does matter is that you are able to provide evidence that your knowledge and competence meet the requirements of a particular unit of competency (competency standard). When you have provided this evidence and it has been accepted as proving your knowledge and skill in a particular area, you will be given credit for a specific competency without having to engage in further study.
Agents will normally have to complete modules in:-
- Trust accounting
- Property management or sales - depending on experience
How Do I Apply
- Contact the Victorian Real Estate College to talk with a qualified assessor who will outline the RPL process to you. This is a good time to ask any questions that you may have about the RPL process and to seek clarification where it may be needed.
- Refer to information on qualifications required for each course including description of units. Refer to units of competency for which RPL is being sought - tick units.
- Produce an RPL evidence kit for each unit of competency for which RPL is being sought. Include evidence such as work experience, life experience and education/training academic transcripts. Please supply reason for seeking RPL for each module.
- Complete and submit your application form with the supporting documentary evidence.
*Please be aware the College may contact you to answer questions to support your application for RPL in specific units of competency.
