Skills Assessment

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

Do you have the skills and experience but no formal qualifications? We offer trade skills assessments for those who have gained skills and knowledge in their trade through their workplace experience and would like to become qualified.

This is also known as Recognition of Prior Learning or RPL, and successful completion of this process will award you with a nationally recognized qualification.

We take the hassle out of getting your qualification by making the process as simple and stress free as possible. Our trainer will assess your skills and knowledge in your trade at a location convenient to both of you. It is required that you have a minimum of 5 years working full time in your chosen trade to Australian Standards. For any areas you may not be competent in, we provide nationally recognised training to get you fully qualified.

Part of the process is where you tell us about yourself and the knowledge and skills you have in your chosen trade. This will be done by completing the self-skills document online.

You will also be required to provide photographic evidence pertaining to each unit within the qualification, along with references and any other relevant documentation to support your RPL assessment.

The course is 3 months from the date of enrolment and contact us for more information.

This Self Assessment is a step by step process to gather all the information about your current skills. It will give you opportunities provide references with people you have worked with, and gather photos of work that you have done. This will help your trainer in identifying all of your current skills.

Step 3: Discuss with trainer

When you have finished working through the self-assessment online or booklet, your trainer will arrange a time to discuss all the evidence you have provided. He will determine what skills you have and if you will need any further training to get your qualification.

If your trainer identified any gaps in your skills, he will provide you with the practical training to bring your skills up to date. If you need any further theory training to gain your qualification, this can be done through our online learning system for those who would like to do it online, or through our self paced workbooks for those who prefer paperbased.
