Our Diploma of Training Design and Development is delivered online via Recognition Assessment:

Recognition Assessment acknowledges the full range of an individual’s skills and knowledge. This includes competencies gained through:

  • formal studies
  • work experience and
  • life experience

Recognition Assessment (RA) is a new term that incorporates both prior learning and experience. Previously, this process was known as Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL).

  • RA means that no learner should have to undertake training for any units of competency. Learners should be able to demonstrate satisfactory achievement of the performance criteria by providing evidence from current and /or relevant work related experience.
  • If learners cannot fulfil the assessment criteria in one or more units of competency, they will be given the opportunity to provide further evidence for any gap/s OR they will be advised of training and development options if applicable.
