RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING (RPL)

InTech offers you the chance to take all your experience and turn it into a nationally recognised Australian qualification!

RPL reduces your study time and cost. You can fast track your qualification by having your previous skills and experience, formal and informal study converted into a nationally recognised qualification.

National qualifications are the benchmark for occupational licensing, employers and minimum requirements for certain professions, professional bodies and associations and industries.

Eligible Queensland residents with substantial industry experience may be eligible to apply for a
Trade Skills Assessment and Gap Training (TSAGT) Program
subsidised by the QLD Government.

There is a cost for RPL assessment. Cost varies depending on the qualification.

Please contact the institute to discuss the process and fees.
