“I approached Asset College to assist me through the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) process. My formal qualifications and years of experience as a Trainer, Developer and Manager in Government and Defence saw me be awarded two Graduate Diploma’s, one Diploma and one Advanced Diploma. Asset College helped me by thoroughly explaining the process through e-mails and via telephone conversations. The process was a simplified step by step activity of me submitting claims against the various competencies and through a thorough interview process.  After a lot of research on my part and by following guidelines set by Asset I found the experience not to be as daunting as I first envisaged. As a person who has conducted many RPL’s I would recommend Asset College to any person who wishes to go through the RPL process.”

Once again thanks to Asset College for your guidance and professionalism throughout the who RPL process.”
