National Recognition: Queens College recognises relevant qualifications issued by other RTOs. There is no fee for National Recognition. Where the qualification was gained more than 3 years ago we reserve the right to check that competence is current. This may involve the applicant in undergoing a challenge test. 

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL): is an assessment process that enables an applicant to gain recognition of skills and knowledge regardless of how they were achieved. This may include formal or informal learning, work experience or general life experience. In order to grant RPL, assessors must be confident that the applicant is currently competent against the units of competence in the qualification.

The evidence to demonstrate this may include certificate, references from past employers, testimonials from clients and work samples. Where RPL is granted you do not have to participate in further training and assessment for skills and knowledge that you already possess. There is a fee for RPL assessment. Further information regarding RPL is available on request.

Overseas experience and qualifications: All applicants seeking to establish the relationship between their overseas qualifications and an Australian education qualification in the Australian Qualifications Framework will be directed to National Office of Overseas Skills Recognition (AEI-NOOSR). AEI-NOOSR is a part of the Australian National Information Centre, part of an international network providing authoritative information and advice on recognition of qualifications. Once the application has been assessed by AEI-NOOSR the college will then be able to accept and process the internal RPL application.
