RPL is a form of assessment that acknowledges skills and knowledge gained through:

  • Formal training conducted by industry or education
  • Work experience
  • Life experience

The main principle of RPL focuses on the outcomes of learning rather than when or where the learning occurred. Evidence of competency is collected by the student and submitted to the nominated assessor and assessment is made based on the required industry standard within the relevant training package unit of competency. If you believe this may apply to you for any part of the course, then you should request an application kit during the enrolment process.

Please be aware that successful completion of the National Assessment Instrument for the licence class will also be required prior to WorkSafe issuing a high risk work licence.

SMS Training Institute is responsible for the quality of the training and assessment in compliance with the Standards for RTOs 2015, and for the issuance of the AQF certification documentation.

Once the student has commenced the assessment service in their chosen Unit of competency SMS Training Institute is committed to completing the delivery of the assessment within the agreed duration and will further negotiate the timing for completion of the assessment if a student is unable to complete the course due to illness or extenuating circumstances.
