Credit Transfer and Recognition of Prior Learning

Kaplan Professional recognises potential or current students may have undertaken previous training, study or have work experience equivalent to units of competency in a Kaplan Professional subject/qualification.

Where this can be demonstrated, an individual may be granted credit or recognition of prior learning from a previous subject/qualification.

Credit transfer (CT) is the process of awarding credit for a unit or units of competency (UoC) attained from another Registered Training Organisation (RTO) which are the same as the unit or units of competency in a Kaplan Professional subject or qualification.

 

CT Evidence Requirements

Individuals are required to provide certified copies of any relevant qualification certificates or statements of attainment listing the unit(s) of competency for which they’re seeking credit transfer.

 

How to apply for credit transfer:

  1. Review the course or subject outline for your proposed course or qualification, which includes the units of competency delivered in each subject or course. If you’ve been awarded the same units of competency in your prior study, you may be eligible for a credit. Kaplan Professional’s course or subject outlines can be found under the ‘Course Overview’ tab of the specific subject or course on the Kaplan Professional website.
  1. Review and complete the Credit and Recognition of Prior Learning Application Form (Part B) and return to rpl@kaplan.edu.au along with a certified copy of your qualification certificate or statement of attainment.

 

Note: Applicable administration fees apply. See CT and RPL fees section.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process assessing the competency(ies) of an applicant which may have been acquired through formal, non-formal and informal learning.

 

RPL Evidence Requirements

Individuals are required to provide evidence of their skills and knowledge to meet the requirements of the units of competency for which they’re seeking RPL.

The RPL evidence requirements will vary between subjects and or courses. Specific evidence requirements for each qualification or course can be found in the RPL Kit made available to the applicant on commencement of the RPL process.

 

How to apply for RPL:

  1. Review the course or subject outline for your proposed course or qualification, which includes the units of competency, topics and learning outcomes delivered in each subject or course. If you believe your prior study or experience could be relevant to your Kaplan Professional qualification/course, you may be eligible for RPL in your intended course of study. Kaplan Professional’s course or subject outlines can be found under the ‘Course overview’ tab of the specific subject or course on the Kaplan Professional website.
  2. If you believe you’re eligible for RPL, contact Kaplan Professional on 1300 662 203 or rpl@kaplan.edu.au and request the relevant RPL kit for the course or subject. This document will include detailed information on the evidence you’ll need to provide with your application.
  3. Review and complete the Credit and Recognition of Prior Learning Application Form (Part B) and RPL Kit and return to rpl@kaplan.edu.au. Kaplan Professional will only proceed with your RPL request if your completed Credit and Recognition of Prior Learning Application Form is submitted to Kaplan Professional prior to, or together with your completed RPL Kit.
