Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process where skills and knowledge that you have gained through work and life experience and other unrecognised training can be formally recognised.
ICM has a process that has been structured to minimise the time and cost to applicants and provides a supportive approach to students wishing to take up this option. You should ideally apply for RPL at the time of enrolment, but you may also apply up to 2 weeks into your course.
During the entry process and interview stage ICM will discuss with you the process and options for RPL. Suitability is often determined on how much experience you have in a certain area, your work history and previous training.
If RPL is determined as a possibility for you, you will be provided with a kit that will guide you in working through each unit to determine relevant skills and experience and identify whether you would be able to provide the required evidence.
A trainer/assessor will be available to assist you throughout this process.
*Please refer to your Student Prospectus for more information on RPL. As an international student you should note that where you are granted RPL this will reduce your course duration and you will be informed of this in writing.
