Recognition of Prior Learning

RPL is an assessment process that enables an applicant to gain recognition of skills and knowledge regardless of how they were achieved. This may include formal or informal learning, work experience, or general life experience. Where RPL is granted you do not have to participate in further training and assessment for skills and knowledge that you already possess.

Assessment Methods

The Pivot Institute assessments are aimed at adding value to the individual and their organisation. Assessment with The Pivot Institute is true to the units of competency, but is tailored to the needs of the individual and the organisation. This means that where possible we ensure that the assessment fits into what you are doing in your workplace as part of your daily workplace activities. The result is assessment that is meaningful and valuable to both the participant and the organisation. 

Entry Requirements

Participants must have the TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment or equivalent experience to qualify for the course. They must also have experience in competency-based training and assessment. Strong literacy and numeracy skills are required. Participants must also have access to a computer with a reliable and stable Internet connection for online/virtual classroom delivery. Workplace projects conducted in a training and assessment environment will be the basis for the assessment tasks.
