Recognition of prior Learning

Recognition of Prior Learning recognises your existing experience gained through life or work for which you may not have obtained a formal qualification. We will work with you to identify your existing skills, and assess if you can then achieve a full or partial qualification. This also helps to avoid unnecessary duplication of training, saving you time and money.

Assessment Process

ADI believes that no learner should be required to undertake a competency or element of a competency in a qualification for which they are already able to demonstrate satisfactory achievement of the performance outcomes stated in the endorsed training package or nationally recognised course.

ADI aims to maximise the recognition of a learner’s prior skills and knowledge whilst at all times maintaining the integrity and standards of the defined learning outcomes of the specific qualification.

Regardless of the type of evidence that you submit, Assessors must be confident that the evidence meets the following criteria:

  • Meets the requirements of the Unit of Competency(s)
  • Meets any Regulatory requirements
  • Is your own evidence and can be authenticated
  • That you can perform the competency consistently and reliably
  • Is at the standard expected in industry and set out in the Australian Qualifications Framework
  • Is sufficient to make a judgment about the above

ADI is committed to ensuring that all judgments made by Assessors against the same competency standards are consistent.
