Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

The Redman Insititute offers Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) for students who are interested in gaining a qualification through prior knowledge and experience.

RPL is the process by which your existing skills, knowledge and experience gained throughout your life, regardless of how they have been acquired, are recognised towards the achievement of a nationally recognised qualification or Statement of Attainment.

The process draws extensively on your experience in your respective industry or vocational area with an informed perspective of the specific work requirements within your normal duties.  To gain recognition for the competencies in a qualification, you are required to prepare a portfolio of evidence.  This will link a sound theoretical knowledge base with your competencies to plan, carry out and evaluate your own work.


Redman Institute currently offers RPL for the following qualifications:

       Diploma of Counselling - CHC51015

       Graduate Diploma of Relationship Counselling - CHC81015


If you are interested in pursuing a qualification and would like further information on the RPL process, please contact Marion or Valerie at the Redman Institute by phone on 8294 6559 or by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
