What is RPL?
RPL is an assessment process that assesses an individual’s non-formal and informal learning to determine the extent to which that individual has achieved the required learning outcomes, competency outcomes, or standards for entry to, and/or partial or total completion of, a qualification.

You must be currently employed in, or have authorised access to an operational drilling team while undertaking the Recognition of prior Learning process.
