However, regardless of the company you select, the participant price remains the same when the course is delivered under a financed arrangement.

Regardless of the organization you select, the competency requirements applied and the qualification granted have the same meaning.

What may change are:

  • The units that are selected to make up the qualification
  • The method of training
  • The skills of the trainer
  • Venues
  • Assessment methods
  • Funding arrangements
  • Time taken to complete the qualification

You can, of course. However, if you’re enrolling as an apprentice or trainee, you should talk to your employer before choosing a training provider.

The level of learning will be evaluated in relation to the course’s stated learning objectives by a certified teacher or instructor who is qualified to teach the course.

You can request a copy of your credentials by contacting the institution where you finished your study. The assessor will ask you to provide evidence of your competency in other ways if this isn’t possible.

Let us handle that. Elpida Education’s RPL Skills Assessor will get in touch with you to let you know which units you qualify for credit if you submit the necessary documents. If you are aware of the requirements for the units, you can state in Part 2 of the application the units you intend to RPL, which will help the RPL Skills Assessor and expedite the application process.
