HLS Training

Under our Higher Level Skills program, we require students to start off their studies with Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). RPL is based on a student’s previous and existing Industry knowledge and evidence of this Industry knowledge. During the RPL process your trainer will establish how many units you will be able to RPL and how many units they will provide gap training to you.
