As a registered training organisation, the college will continue to provide on campus training during COVID lockdown as permitted by the Department of Education and Training.

There are two ways you may apply for an exemption from a subject:

1. Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)
RPL relates to an individual’s skills and knowledge, irrespective of how it has been acquired, this includes competencies gained through work experience, employment, informal training (not accredited) and other life experiences. Credit transfer relates to formal study. Prior to completing the RPL form, you should talk to us to gain a better understanding of the chances of your success in application for RPL. Read the student learning guide for the subject (provided on this website) as this provides the subject outline and performance criteria. In the event you assess yourself as meeting the elements, performance criteria and associated components of the course, complete the RPL form (below) and submit it with your documentation (evidence) along with the $250 non-refundable application fee. The information will be assessed and the student notified of a decision by the college within 21 days. This fee is non-refundable regardless of the outcome.
Evidence may include:
Certified copies of academic transcripts
A description of previously undertaken course content (including aims, objectives and assessments)
Documentation of the life / work skills obtained together with relevant referees’ contact details for verification
Reports or other work related documents you have personally completed (please adhere to confidentiality requirements)
Your personal resume if applicable
If you are applying for an exemption from the Electricity Fundamentals subject, a copy of your electrical license (if you are a licensed electrician) and/or formal training qualifications
If you are applying for an exemption from the Business Skills or Business Smarts subject, you should submit a comprehensive business plan that you have prepared

As part of this application, you need to supply a 'Statement of Attainment' which has been certified by the appropriate authority or the original testamur provided by the RTO/TAFE (along with a stamp self addressed envelope). Fees do not apply for this application.
