Students with previous VET qualifications or statements of attainment can apply for direct credit transfer with the CEAV Institute. Students are advised to check for currency as deleted or superseded training package units cannot be accepted for credit transfer.
Students must present evidence of the exact unit of competency (code and title) for credit transfer of a core unit(s).
Students may apply for credit transfer for up to 5 elective units using units of competence from any endorsed Training Package or accredited course – these alternative units must contribute to a valid, industry-supported vocational outcome in career development.
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)
Students who already have knowledge and skills gained through previous work experience and/or related study may wish to consider recognition of prior learning. RPL is the acknowledgement of competencies previously attained which exempts students from completing selected units or assessments to demonstrate competency in the course.
It is imperative students provide evidence that their skills and knowledge are up-to-date, used in current practice and match the industry-supported vocational outcome of the unit(s).
RPL is an evidence-based process that usually requires the student to complete an evidence portfolio, collection of knowledge questions, third-party report, interview with their assessor and, if required, complete any gap-training.
Please Note: Students interested in credit transfer or RPL are strongly advised to indicate this when completing the Expression of Interest Form
Applications for Credit Transfer and RPL must be submitted within 4 weeks of course commencement.
