Recognition of prior learning
ACFPT can assess and provide recognition for any prior learning (RPL). If a learner has completed any units from a previous nationally recognised qualification, these can be transferred, and the learner can complete the remaining units with ACFPT to obtain their qualification.
If you wish to apply for RPL, it is always advisable to do so in an environment where you can complete any additional units you need to obtain the qualification. RPL is a method we use to recognise the knowledge and skills you already possess. RPL takes both your paid work and volunteer roles into account.
Just enrol into your preferred course and select “Apply for RPL” on your enrolment forms.
Your life experiences, previous qualifications and training can all be considered as part of RPL. By gaining acknowledgement for your previous learning, you may be able to reduce the time it takes to get your qualification.

Advantages in RPL
There are many advantages in undertaking the RPL process with ACFPT, including:
- Recognition of personal skills
Many learners find it encouraging to have skills, knowledge, and experience recognised in qualifications or units of competency
It enables you to identify gaps in your knowledge and skills, which will identify any learning that needs to occur to meet the requirements of a particular job role or qualification
It is important that learners acknowledge and understand that RPL outcomes are guidelines and are not definite. The actual outcome and competencies issued in this manner may vary depending on the evidence, skills, and knowledge demonstrated by the learner through the process.
Learners are required to sign an acknowledgment statement during this process should they wish to undertake the RPL process with ACFPT.
