RPL is an assessment process that involves assessment of an individual’s relevant prior learning (including formal, informal and non-formal learning) to determine the credit outcomes of an individual application for credit.
RPL involves issuing organisations undertaking an assessment of each individual who applies to determine the extent to which that individual’s previous learning is equivalent to the learning outcomes of the components of the destination qualification.
- Government Subsidised Students:
All subsidised students are required to pay a co-contribution fee.
The co-contribution fee for this course is only applicable to the units that are GAP trained. Each unit of competency has nominated training hours agreed upon by the industry. For each nominated hour the candidate will be required to pay $1.60.

The course delivery depends on the factors such as your current skills and experience as well as your knowledge of the hospitality industry.
In a typical scenario, the assessor will visit you in your workplace to determine your potential for RPL and the amount of training required for you to successfully achieve this qualification.
Based on the factors outlined above, it is very difficult for us to give you an exact timeframe. However, typically majority of our students finish their course between 6 – 24 months.
