RPL is an assessment method that involves evaluation of an individual’s relevant prior learning, including formal, informal and non-formal learning. The process assesses competence against a set of performance criteria applicable to a particular unit of study (or a group of units) within a course. It allows applicants to demonstrate current skills and knowledge without the need to undertake repetitive theoretical study in the same unit. Further information can be seen here on the definition.

RPL is just one method of assessment and it should not be confused with a Credit Transfer (CT). CT is a process that enables students to receive credit for previous formal training where that training is considered equivalent. More information on this is detailed here.
