PREVIOUS STUDIES RECOGNITION

Previous study or experience may be recognised either through a Credit Transfer (CT) or Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) pathway.

CREDIT TRANSFER

Do you already have a qualification, statements of attainment or academic statements for units completed at another Registered Training Organisation (RTO)? 

National recognition is all about recognising these previous studies.

Where units of competency have the same National code but were awarded by another RTO, JSW will recognise these to assist you in completing this qualification.  Simply present your original documentation during your interview.  Fees do not apply for recognition of credit transfers.

RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING (RPL)

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process that allows a student to receive recognition and credit for the skills and knowledge they have, no matter how and where they were attained. This can include skills and knowledge acquired through training, paid employment, voluntary positions and general life experience. Fees apply for RPL assessment.

ENROLMENT FEES

Course fees (also known as tuition fee) are available here:

**The student tuition fees are indicative only and are subject to change given individual circumstances at enrolment. Additional fees may apply such as student service and resource fee.

Resource Fees: In addition to course fees resource fees may be charged, if charged this fee is for materials that are considered essential to a course or unit of study and which do not form part of the course fee. Resource fees are set at the unit level and the final resource fee charge for a qualification depends on the electives chosen, and will be calculated at enrolment.

Instalment payment plans are available for this course

CONCESSION ELIGIBILITY
