You can support your staff to do recognised training so they get a qualification. You can help them get their current skills recognised through recognition of prior learning.

Recognition of Prior Learning
Your employees might have valuable skills that you don’t know about – skills that can be formally recognised to speed up their training and save money, and be put to use to help your business.
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process to assess existing levels of knowledge and skills including:
- previous job training
- courses completed (including those overseas)
- skills and experience gained in the community and during everyday life.
These are assessed against a range of Australian industry and standards.
Properly assessed employees can then be put into the right stage of learning and training, without repeating training they’ve already done – better for you, better for them.
RPL is carried out by training providers.
Speak to your chosen training provider about RPL assessments and their process.
Recognition of overseas skills and qualifications
If you have employees who gained skills, training or qualifications overseas you may need Skilled Migrant Services (SMS). SMS is a free service offering advice and assistance to get overseas qualifications assessed and compared to Australian qualifications and professional or occupational standards.
For more information on recognising overseas skills and qualifications, see assistance and support or call our Infoline.
