QACs CASA Approved procedure facilitates the progression of candidate’s through qualifications by giving credit for learning outcomes they already have achieved.
Credit outcomes may allow for entry into an approved Aircraft Type Training program and/or provide credit towards that qualification.
Credit given may reduce the time required for a AME / LAME to achieve the course outcome.
RPL is one of a number of processes for establishing credit or advanced standing.
RPL broadens access into learning by enabling credit to be given for candidate achievement through other learning.
QAC RPL involves QAC undertaking an assessment of a candidate who applies to determine the extent to which that individual’s previous learning is equivalent to the learning outcomes of the components of the destination qualification.
As with all assessment, it should be undertaken by QAC Approved RPL Assessor with expertise in the subject, content or skills area, as well as knowledge of and expertise in RPL assessment.
The assessment should be the same standard as other assessment for the qualification.
The Assessment should recognise learning, provided the learning is relevant to the learning outcomes in the qualification.
The assessment must ensure that evidence provided is valid, authentic, current and sufficient and that the process is fair, flexible reliable and valid.
