Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

BSB51413 Diploma of Project Management


What is RPL?
RPL recognises that you may already have the skills and knowledge needed to meet national
competency standards. Instead of undertaking training and assessment for a course you can provide
evidence to show that you already meet the required standard.
What evidence do I need?
Evidence will differ from person to person, depending upon their work and life experiences. There is
no specific type of evidence that is essential, rather it is up to you to provide whatever evidence you
think demonstrates that you meet the skills and knowledge specified in a unit of competency. The
requirements for the unit(s) of competency in your course are summarised at the end of this
document.
There are many suitable forms of evidence including:
Academic achievements
Assessments/assignments
Awards
Attendance record
Brief
Budgets
Business case
Care plan
Certificates
Challenge test
Checklist
Committee work
Conference attendance
Course outline

Customer
evaluations/feedback
Demonstration
Diary
Drawings
Emails
Financial statements
Job description
Letter of support
Log book
Marketing plan
Minutes of meeting
Observation
Performance appraisal report
Photos

Plans
Portfolio
Position description
Policies
Presentation notes
Procedure manual
Project
Proposal
Published works
References
Reports
Resume
Rosters or timesheets
Training plan
Work samples

If you do not have enough evidence we can provide you with assessment tasks to complete instead.
When submitting evidence, keep the following in mind:

To be suitable, your evidence must relate to the criteria specified in the unit(s) of
competency.
You need to submit enough evidence for an assessment to be made.
Your evidence needs to show that your skills and knowledge are current and up-to-date. If
your evidence is more than two years old you should have other, more recent evidence to
supplement older evidence.
Your evidence needs to prove that you have the required skills and knowledge. It cant just
suggest that you probably know something.

How do I apply?
Enrol in your chosen course and indicate on the enrolment form the units that you are seeking RPL
for. You will be sent an RPL application form and more information about the RPL application
process. Assessment of your evidence will begin as soon as your enrolment has been processed and
your evidence has been submitted.
How long does it take?
The initial assessment of your evidence will usually be completed within 3 working days. If your
evidence proves that you have the required skills and knowledge then your RPL assessment will
conclude at this point and you will receive credit for the relevant unit(s) in your course.
If there are gaps in your evidence, these gaps will be outlined to you and you will be asked to
provide more evidence. You can elect to complete an assessment task in lieu of providing more
evidence if you wish.
When can I apply for RPL?
You can apply for RPL at anytime during your course. You can choose to either:

complete the RPL process first and then continue with the remainder of the course, or
work through the course from the beginning but submit evidence in lieu of completing the
assessment tasks as you come to each assessment task.

What skills and knowledge do I need to have?


To be granted RPL for a unit you need to show that you meet the requirements of the unit(s) of
competency. The unit requirements are summarised below.
