Veterans Achieve Recognition of Prior Learning
At 3CIR, we are in the business of recognition or prior learning, or RPL. Unlike many RTOs that offer RPL opportunities, though, we often focus our efforts on a particular niche of students: current and ex-military members.
Joining the military is often a rewarding experience, giving you an opportunity to learn so much and build lifelong friendships. But it’s not just about being in tight-knit communities where everyone knows your name; once deployed or returning from duty – especially if there were injuries sustained during service – life can be even more difficult than before!
The difficulties don’t stop when one returns home either: instead, they worsen due to both physical conditions (such as post-traumatic stress disorder) which arise because people were At this point, the psychology of veterans—particularly those who have seen combat—is well-documented. Post-traumatic stress disorder (or PTSD) is a very real and very serious problem for veterans.
However, even ex-military service people who don’t struggle with PTSD can have difficulty reintegrating into everyday life. Academia is often at the root of those problems. Individuals who have served in the military have invariably gone through a bulk of training and educational sessions. They’ve gained skills and experience that are, by most accounts, extremely valuable to many branches of the Australian or New Zealand workforce. However, ex-military types are sometimes not seen as hireable—not because they lack the skills to do the job, but because they do not have the certification.
Offering Prior Learning Recognition for Military Service
At 3CIR, we offer RPL, or recognition of prior learning, for military service people. We believe the skills that servicemen and women acquire while serving their country are valuable and should be given the same weight as skills learned in the university classroom. Our recognition prior learning courses are designed to take the knowledge, experience and skills that are already there and back them up with certifications. These certifications, in turn, make it easier for veterans to find work and build regular lives away from the military. 3CIR specialises in RPL for the following services:
