      CREDIT TRANSFERS & PATHWAYS

      CREDIT TRANSFER

      Axiom College as a Registered Training Organisation recognises the Australian Qualifications Framework qualifications and Statement of Attainments issued by any other Australian Registered Training Organisation.

      Students are encouraged to submit any requests for credit from previous studies at the time of enrolment, to ensure they are not enrolling in units they may not need to undertake.  In order to apply for exemption/credit transfer from units completed at another training organisation, you will need to notify Axiom College when you enrol.

      You will need to submit your documentary evidence (certified copy of Qualification/Statement of Attainment) to support your request for exemption/credit transfer via mail or email. Requests without documentary evidence will not be processed and will be returned to students. There are no fees attached to Credit Transfers.

      RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING (RPL)

      RPL is the acknowledgement of a person’s skills and knowledge acquired through previous training, work or life experience, which may be used to grant status or competency in a subject regardless of how and where they were attained.
      This can include skills from:

      • Previous study excluding courses at a VET/TAFE institution, but including courses at school or college, through adult education classes or training programs at work;
      • Work experience (including both work that is paid and unpaid); and/or
      • Life experience (for example leisure pursuits or voluntary work).

      RPL is a form of assessment. It is used to determine whether a person has acquired, through formal or informal learning, the skills and experience consistent with the stated competency standards that comprise a qualification. RPL is not time referenced, so there are no parameters on how or when the skills are acquired. However, the skills that have been acquired through life experience etc., must be current and must match the elements and performance criteria contained in the individual unit.

      Students seeking RPL need to indicate this when enrolling, fee’s will apply and will be discussed upon enrolment.
