Mathisi: RPL

Get qualified in business, retail, bookkeeping or management with recognition of prior learning.

What is RPL?

Recognition of prior learning is the process of receiving a qualification, in part or full, by acknowledging skills and knowledge learned through life experience, work or uncompleted or non-recognised training.

How do I get recognised for prior learning?

Recognition is achieved through a formal assessment by a qualified RPL assessor. This assessment will focus on your ability to demonstrate that you have the required degree of skill, knowledge and experience to meet the competency levels needed in a specific unit within a qualification.

How can Mathisi help?

We offer prior learning assessment and recognition. We look at past jobs, life experience, samples of your work and any industry representative endorsements you might have.

We use methods to establish your competency against a national set of standards. You can then receive recognition of prior learning by either gaining a full qualification or receiving credit towards one.

How long does the process take?

Recognition of prior learning can take some time. But the more preparation you do, the less time it will take once you begin the process with us. It is your responsibility to gather and compile evidence. All applications must be completed within 90 days unless negotiated individually with your assessor.

How much does it cost?

Applications and assessments are not free. All RPL registrations costs are determined on application.

How do I get started?

Getting the formal recognition you deserve is simple. Just notify us that you want a prior learning assessment when you enrol for your course.

Our highly skilled, industry experienced advisors will assist you in the recognition process, ensuring that we make the assessment easy for you.
