Learning Options Offered


Assessment is the process of assessing evidence of your skills and knowledge against the Units of Competency. It may be a process that takes place over a period of time, or it may be conducted as one event, such as a meeting. Assessment will result in an outcome of 'Competent' or 'Not Yet Competent'.


Your Workplace Assessor is required to collect information about your competence. This information may be in the form of work samples, completed workbooks, observation, written confirmation from your supervisor, resumes or other ways. This information is called Evidence.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

or Recognition of Current Competence (RCC)

These terms apply to official recognition of skills and knowledge an individual has gained through previous learning or experience. In some instances this previous experience may provide enough evidence to give you current competence. If RPL is granted to you, this will reduce the amount of formal training required to complete your qualification.

"Competent/Not Yet Competent"

Every assessment needs to be marked. A Competent result means the trainee has met the relevant competencies. A Not Yet Competent means that further training is required, or perhaps that more evidence needs to be provided to prove competence. More on RPL...

Private Providers vs TAFE: What's the difference?

A Registered Training Organisation (RTO) is a company that is registered to deliver nationally recognised qualifications. RTO's have to meet criteria defined in the Australian Quality Training Framework (AQTF), and are audited against the criteria regularly.

Private training organisations in Australia can apply to become an RTO. TAFE colleges, many schools and some universities also have RTO status.

There are differences between institutions, BUT THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE IN THE QUALIFICATION YOU ACHIEVE.

Differences may be in areas such as:

  • Delivery method
  • Flexibility
  • Trainers
  • Resources
  • Venues
  • Course costs
  • Course durations
