What is RPL?

RPL is an assessment process used to assess your Employee’s existing level of knowledge and skills against a range of industry standards (known as units of competency). This involves them performing their everyday work tasks whilst being observed by an Assessor, telling their stories and answering verbal questions around the work that they do. This assessment process may lead to them gaining the full or part of the qualification CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support, without ever entering a class room.
