    What is RPL?

    Formal training isn’t the only way to get into the career of your choice. You can also qualify for a job based on skills and knowledge that you attained through informal learning. This includes work experience and informal training from previous jobs. These factors might just count towards a nationally recognised qualification.

    At Realistic Training Options, we provide Recognition of Prior Learning or RPL. This RPL training course and skills recognition assessment determines whether your knowledge, skills and experience are on the same level as formal qualifications. We provide skills recognition Australia-wide and overseas. As a result, you can shorten the length of time needed for additional studies. Or, you might not need further study at all.

    Open the Doors to Employment Opportunities

    Formal qualifications make it easier for people to find job opportunities and establish their careers. But your trade skills are just as important. Our Brisbane training facility offers trade recognition so that we can have your relevant skills and knowledge recognised. This way, you won’t need to take a formal qualification course.

    There are various reasons for you to consider coming to us for RPL.

    You’ve been in an industry in one capacity and would like to advance your career.

    The skills and knowledge that you acquired from your previous job might give you a better understanding of the career path you want to pursue.

    You have previously signed up for a qualification course, but you didn’t complete it.

    If you only finished a year of your qualification course but still worked in the same industry, we might be able to arrange full or part qualification of your trade skills.

    You moved from overseas or you plan to move to Australia in the future.

    We can assist with trade recognition of migrants. But please keep in mind that this is still under the Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection.

    If you fall under any of these categories, we gladly offer our RPL training course for you.
