Credit transfer is the recognition of learning achieved through formal education and training. Under the Australian VET Framework, qualifications and statements of attainment issued by any RTO are to be accepted and recognised by all other RTOs. Credit transfer allows a student to be awarded a unit of competency based on successful completion of the unit which has been previously awarded.

For more information ask about see our Credit Transfer Policy. To apply for Credit Transfer, fill out the Credit Transfer Application form available on our website and attach certified copies of the evidence you have (e.g. Statement of Attainment or Certificate) to show you have completed the unit.

MySkills is committed to the concept of lifelong learning, i.e. the ability of a person to be able to continually build on their own knowledge through formal and workplace learning throughout their lifetime. MySkills is pleased to be able to offer a service whereby we can have professional staff determine existing formally (and sometimes informally) learned knowledge in a particular area.

This process is called Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). Once your existing learning has been determined you are on your way to increasing your knowledge without having to re-learn what you already know.

We understand that you may already have many skills and areas of expertise that you have obtained in different ways and these are recognised through our Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) process.

Call 02 8814 8640 to book an RPL Information Session.

MySkills courses are may conducted over the internet.  As such, you will need access to a suitable computer or tablet device with a connection to the internet.  You need to have access to a webcam and/or video recording device such as a mobile phone. Most home computers are suitable.
