Recognition, often referred to as Recognition of Prior Learning or RPL, occurs when a person seeks, and gains recognition, for their skills and knowledge. If what you have learned at work, from other courses, from life experience or the training provided at work is relevant to your course, you may be entitled to gain recognition.
The Office of Emergency Management (OEM) Guide to Recognition provides you with the information to get you started. The guide provides information on the units of competency for which recognition is available, and describes the steps in the process.
