Skills recognition and credit

Skills Recognition is a formal process where you may be able to be deemed competent for units you're enrolling into, or are currently enrolled in, without having to re-learn or practice things you already know and do, and possibly gain your qualification quicker.

We can assess your skills and knowledge through one of the processes below.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

Show the knowledge, skills or experience that you already have, and get official recognition from North Metropolitan TAFE.

RPL Process


Trade Skills Recognition (TSR)

TSR is available to candidates with trade skills and knowledge who are seeking formal acknowledgement through RPL in an entire Trade Certificate.

TSR process

Recognition of Current Competency (RCC)

RCC is where you have previously successfully completed the requirements for a unit of competency and are now required to be reassessed to ensure that competency is being maintained (e.g. by a licencing authority).

Credit Transfer

If you have completed a unit previously, and it matches a unit you wish to study at North Metro TAFE, you could get this unit credited as part of your current course.
