Recognition of Prior Learning

PwC’s Training Academy offer Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL); a quick and cost-effective way to gain international recognition of your existing skills, knowledge and experience.

RPL is a great option if you have limited or no formal qualifications but extensive on-the-job experience. Group RPL is also available.

What is RPL?

RPL is an opportunity for auditors with existing or similar qualifications to gain credit towards their certificate of attainment with Exemplar Global. Examples of previous learnings may include study from recognised tertiary organisations, courses outside of the tertiary education system or applicable work experience.

Assessment Portfolio

If you have no qualifications but believe you have the practical skills, knowledge and experience to match any of the units listed, you can compile a portfolio of evidence. We help to streamline the process by providing helpful templates and an Evidence Portfolio Guide. We then assess your completed portfolio. In some cases, the assessment identifies evidence ‘gaps’ or requires third party verification of your work.

We are a certified Exemplar Global TPECS provider. RPL is available for the following qualifications and units:

  • Exemplar Global AU – Management systems auditing

“The virtual classroom coupled with an enthusiastic trainer made the course easy to run through and as good as any face to face courses I have ever attended.”

“Overall very valuable course. Balance of theory with practical workshops was excellent. Trainers stuck to the timetable very well.”

“To be honest, I wasn’t really looking forward to the training and wasn’t too sure what to expect. It turned out to be quite enjoyable and a really great experience which I put down to the facilitators, Pat and Tom and the group. Both Pat and Tom shared their breadth of knowledge and experiences and were really engaging.”

“Great presentation of the course, engaging facilitators and good use of group work. I found the course to be a great refresher for an audit course I did 10 years ago and now feel more motivated to go audits in a non-bow tie way!”

“Trainers’ knowledge was excellent, their knowledge made the training and learning easy.”
