Recognition of Prior Learning Procedure • • At the Induction meeting, an explanation of Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and Credit Transfer is given to the intending student, along with an RPL Application Form.
Students are to be encouraged to make an application for RPL if they have industry or life experiences which they feel have led them to achieve competency in all elements of a Unit.
It must be explained that evidence is to be made available to verify a student’s claim.
This evidence may constitute any or a combination of the following: o o o • • A letter from present or past employers detailing the duties and tasks successfully performed in the job (in a range of circumstances if applicable).
Statements from others involved in the student gaining skills and experience eg Pony Club administrator.
Statements from industry experts verifying their knowledge of the student and their competence (eg Qld Racing stewards, jockeys, trainers, veterinarians). • Students may be asked to undergo a series of challenge tests to determine competency before RPL is granted.
Credit Transfer is available for students who hold qualifications or Statements of Results or Attainment from another recognised RTO.
If the qualification is for units of competence, which can be mapped against the qualification the student is enrolling in, automatic credit will be granted.
For other units, challenge tests may have to be successfully completed before Credit Transfer is granted. Form TD-0149 Racing Queensland – Page 26 Version 4.0 – August 2009 Certificate IV in Racing – Racehorse Trainer Student Handbook
