HIIE offers all candidates the opportunity to be assessed through an assessment only pathway also known as recognition of prior learning. Prospective students are encouraged to apply for RPL immediately after enrolment if they believe they may be eligible. An RPL Application form can be requested by email enquiries@hiie.edu.au

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a method of assessing your current knowledge, skills and experiences that may have been acquired through informal training such as work history or formal training. HIIE’s Recognition of Prior Learning RPL Policy and associated fees can be found in HIIE’s Student Handbook link to student handbook or alternatively by contacting enquiries@hiie.edu.au

Evidence Gathering

Documented evidence to support your RPL claims is imperative and collecting as much evidence as possible will allow HIIE to assess your competency in your chosen qualification and/or units of competency. You need to ensure that all areas are covered and supply supporting evidence to build a portfolio of your skills and experience.

Without documented evidence, your RPL application will not be successful, so it is important to link your evidence to the outcomes of the units you have selected. Remember that collecting your evidence can take time; however, we require this evidence to ensure that we can establish your competencies in the relevant areas.

Authenticity and validity of your documents

It is vital that all evidence you supply is authentic and valid. This simply means it must be what you say it is and be verifiable as such. Work samples must be a product of your own work output either wholly or collaboratively. Ensure any evidence supplied that includes other people’s work product or other sources, is appropriately referenced to prevent any issues regarding plagiarism. For more information on plagiarism, refer to the Student Handbook.

Verified Documents

When providing certificates and transcripts to support your RPL claims, it is part of our compliance requirements that these are certified by a Justice of the Peace, to ensure these are reliable and accurate. This will also allow us to apply direct credits where previously completed units of competency are applicable to your RPL application and have exactly the same unit code and title. Please note that a credit transfer is recognition of your formal training completed through another registered training organisation (RTO). Credit transfers are considered as part of the RPL process.

Credit Transfer (CT)

HIIE also recognises Statements of Attainment and Record of Results issued by other registered training organisations (RTOs). Candidates must submit a JP certified copy of their certificate and transcripts.
