The underlying principle of Nationally Recognised Training is that a learner does not have to repeat training and assessment that has already been undertaken. CEA will also consider this in Pre-Training Review.

CEA has a ‘Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and Credit Transfer Policy and Procedure’ and can be found at CEA’s website, which outlines in detail a process to be followed for granting recognition and credit transfer. This is supported through the RPL guidelines for this qualification which focus specifically on all units.
Learners are encouraged to apply for RPL prior to or immediately after formal enrolment but prior to the facilitated delivery of units to ensure that they do not miss any training opportunities offered should they be unsuccessful in the RPL process.

Credit Transfer relates to the recognition of learning achieved through formal education and training, and involves assessing a previously completed course or units to see if it provides equivalent learning or competency outcomes to those required within the current course of study. Learners must provide original transcripts of results and/or statements of attainment for credit transfer to be assessed.
Where a learner is successful in the RPL or Credit Transfer (CT) application, the units to be undertaken will be adjusted and the Training Plan will be updated.

Where RPL is granted, learners do not have to participate in further training and assessment for skills and knowledge that they already possess. Please refer to the Fees and Charges/fees Management Policy and Procedure in student handbook for the RPL assessment fee per unit of competency.

CEA’s responsibilities to the students:

  • Providing Quality Training and Assessment
  • Complying with the standards for RTOs 2015.
  • Issuing AQF certification, when all the assessment and financial requirements are met by the students.
    Please note that CEA does not provide any guarantee of:
  • A migration Outcome.
  • A learner will successfully complete a training product on its scope of registration; or
  • A training product can be competed in a manner which does not meet the requirements of the relevant training package or VET accredited course; or
  • A learner will obtain a particular employment outcome.
  • Licensing outcome

Student must read student handbook before making an enrolment decision. You can contact CEA student services for any further information.
