Recognition of Prior Learning
Credit transfer and Recognition of prior learning (RPL) are two ways your previous education, training or experience can contribute to a new qualification.
At St John Ambulance you can apply for credit so your previous learning or experience counts toward your St John Ambulance program.
A successful outcome for this certificate will be determined by a range of different assessment methods including written assessment (questionnaire), observation of simulated and practical activities etc.
Upgrading from TAE40110 to TAE40116
If you hold TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, an upgrade program is available.
Depending on what you have done as a trainer, you may be able to submit a Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) application for the outstanding units not covered by credit transfer. For example, participation in an assessment validation panel can be used as evidence towards TAEASS403 Participate in assessment validation.
If you don’t have enough evidence for Recognition of Prior Learning but you have completed TAEASS401B or TAEASS403B, contact your St John State or Territory office about completing a special program that will enable you to complete TAEASS401 and TAEASS403.
