Course Information


“I approached ASSET to assist me to evaluate 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 for two Graduate Diploma’s, one Diploma and one Advanced Diploma. ASSET helped me by thoroughly explaining the process through e-mails and via telephone conversations. The process was a simplified step by step process 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 to any person who wishes to go through the RPL process.”

Once again thanks for Asset Training Australia’s guidance and professionalism throughout the who RPL process.”
