Fees for RPL

Version 2.0 | 01-02-2020

This information applies to all students enrolled in (or applying for) our tertiary / VET courses

NOTE: We provide Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) only for:

  • nationally recognised vocational (VET) units-of-competency;
  • whole units-of-competency and qualifications on our scope of registration; and
  • students undertaking / completing a whole qualification (course) with us.

RPL fees for whole units-of-competency

    • if by National Recognition (where you have already attained a current unit-of-competency) – $0.00 per unit.
    • if by RPL assessment, or credit-transfer assessment – $200.00 per unit.
    • $25.00 per unit
    • or a packaged fee for multiple units, at our discretion.

Fees for a Defined RPL Entry Point into a qualification

Some courses have Defined RPL Entry Point/s, which are shown on the course web page (where applicable). Fees for a Defined RPL Entry Point are calculated separately and packaged into a single amount. No other fees are applicable. The packaged amount is deducted from your overall course tuition fee – once your RPL application has been finalised (no invoice is required or issued).

Fees for RPL of  a whole qualification

  • RPL and/or credit-transfer assessment for a whole qualification: 9.5% of the current tuition fee for the qualification.

Exclusions from stated RPL fees

  • RPL fees do not include fees for flight tests, flight reviews or any further assessment activity set by the RPL assessor for a specific RPL application. These fees are payable separately at the time the assessment activity is undertaken.
  • GST does not apply to RPL fees.

Payment of RPL fees

Fees are calculated by us and invoiced to you on receipt of your RPL application. Fees are payable within 7 days of the lodgement of your application. Your application will not be assessed until your fees have been paid in full. Note: this does not apply to fees for Defined RPL Entry Points.

Fees for assessment of RPL are payable regardless of the outcome of the RPL assessment. An applicant who is assessed as ‘not-yet-competent’ is liable for payment of RPL fees, as advised by us.
