Benefits of obtaining a Certificate IV

Our other main option for obtaining our Certificate IV course is through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). A Cert 4 RPL can help you save time and cost by using your previous professional and voluntary experience to gain a qualification. Made possible through the Australian Qualifications Framework Cert IV RPLs require a number of years in a particular industry to be awarded. If you have, for example, working in an administration position for a number of years. The skills you have learnt throughout this time are the same ones you would learn through completing a Certificate IV in Business online. Because these learning outcomes match, you can receive a Cert 4 in Business through RPL. One major factor that will help is the evidence you provide during the Certificate IV RPL process. In order for our assessors to be able to map your experience to one of our Cert IV qualifications, they need to see evidence of your experience. This evidence can take a number of different forms including a resume or CV, position descriptions, photos of you completing work, performance appraisals etc. Essentially, any documentation you can provide will help our assessors to get a Cert IV quickly. Because you don’t have to study, Recognition of Prior Learning for a Certificate IV is much quicker and cheaper than traditional study… you don’t have to relearn what you already know.

If you don’t want to study online and don’t already have Certificate 4 experience, you can still undertake a number of our courses. With our training partner, we have physical locations around Australia where you can go in and study on one of their computers. Just let us know and we can arrange for a space close to you.
