Recognition of Prior Learning

Investing in your Future

Do you have experience working in the construction industry and would like or need to achieve a formal qualification?

A Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and a Recognition of Current Competencies (RCC) assessment is provided by Back to Basics Business Training to all new and current students.
What is Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)?

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a thorough assessment of your current knowledge, skills and experience within a particular field or industry.
What is Recognition of Current Competencies (RCC)?
Recognition of Current Competencies (RCC) acknowledges your current competencies, based on or against national accredited unit (s) or qualifications and aligned against the current Construction Industry competencies.

How is the Evidence and Certificate Assessed?

Step 1

Complete the Enquiry Form below and our RPL team will contact you to discuss your knowledge, skills and experience within the building and construction industry. They will also send you the course RPL Evidence Guide which details the information you would need to supply to support and verify your skills, knowledge, and experience.

Step 2

One of our experienced RPL assessors will contact you and conduct a thorough and in-depth Competency Conversation. They will also advise you of any further evidence needed to finalise your RPL/RCC assessment.

Step 3

Once the assessor has received your supporting RPL/RCC documents they will assess any RPL/RCC that may apply against your knowledge, skills and experience as it relates against the course you are seeking RPL/RCC. There may be times when we will ask you for further information. You will be kept in the loop regarding the process every step of the way.

Step 4

After the assessor has conducted the RPL/RCC assessment they will send you an RPL/RCC Advice Letter. The Advice Letter sets out any exemptions that have been applied to units or tasks and what gap training may still be required.
