Certificate IV in Business

Get your skills or experience recognised with The Business School’s Recognition of Prior Learning process.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is an assessment process that assesses an individual’s formal, non-formal and informal learning to determine the extent to which that individual has achieved the required learning outcomes, competency outcomes, or standards for entry to, and / or partial or total completion of a VET qualification.

Students who believe they have already obtained current skills and knowledge that would otherwise be covered in the qualification / unit of competency for which they intend to attain, should apply for RPL at the time of enrolment. The student’s skills and knowledge will be assessed and validated, and where appropriate, units of competency acknowledged and face-to-face training reduced.
