Competency-based training places emphasis on the workplace application of attained knowledge and skills – not how long spent in training or the amount of knowledge acquired in a formal learning environment.
Australian Qualifications and Statements of Attainments that have been issued by any other Registered Training Organisation (RTO) will be recognised by WBS To apply for a Credit Transfer, participants must be able to present their original Qualification or Statement of Attainment with National codes and titles that match the current course in which they are enrolled.
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is the acknowledgment of skills and knowledge obtained through formal training, work experience and/or life experience. The purpose of this process is to identify and assess previously acquired skills and knowledge against the required competency standards.
Course participants applying for RPL must provide evidence to the satisfaction of WBS. This evidence must clearly indicate that the applicant is able to demonstrate all the required skills and knowledge.
Information and documentation regarding the application procedure for RPL and/or Credit Transfers will be made available to all participants upon request.
Please note that RPL cannot be granted for part of a unit. Any applicant may appeal in writing against a decision regarding RPL to the Training Manager by following the ‘Complaints and Appeals Policy and Procedure.’
