Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

RPL is a formal assessment process that recognises your current skills and knowledge. If you have the necessary experience and skills, you may be competent in one or more units, even if you haven't completed recognised training.

The assessment process looks at:

  • your real estate experience
  • experiences gained throughout your working life
  • any education or training you have completed

The education can be formal, such as diplomas or degrees from recognised educational institutions or informal training such as Continuing Professional Development (CPD) attendance at conferences or seminars or franchise training. In fact, any learning whatsoever can be recognised.

Please note that there is an application fee of A$150 (non-refundable) for RPL.

Advanced Standing

If you have completed any of the required units of competency through another Registered Training Organisation (RTO), you will be eligible for advanced standing (AS).

To apply for AS, you will need to provide Kaplan Professional with a certified copy of a Statement of Attainment or Transcript of Results issued by the RTO listing the national codes of the units completed.

You can apply for AS free of charge.
