RPL uses your previous experience (whether that is professional or voluntary) and maps them to the learning outcomes of any of our qualifications. As mentioned, often times you will need a fair amount of experience in your profession to obtain an Advanced Diploma. The two main benefits of obtaining your qualification through 3CIR are that the RPL assessment is completely free and secondly, you can see any level of qualification you’re already eligible for from Certificate II all the way to Graduate Diploma. So here’s how you apply:

As part of the form, fill out your details and list any industry experience you have. If you also have an updated CV, upload it to give us a better idea of how the assessment will progress.

If you don’t meet all the requirements, don’t worry you can still undertake a few extra units of study and make up the difference!
