Credit Transfer

Credit transfer is a process, which provides learners with agreed and consistent credit outcomes based on equivalences in content between matched qualifications. (Source: AUR Implementation guide v7.1)

If a certificate or statement of results is produced and verified, MARS will initiate a credit transfer process in relation to the units as per the training plan. MARS will formally assess all the competencies held by the student against the unit of competencies in this training package making sure that learning is relevant to the unit of competency outcomes.

Recognition of Prior Learning

RPL is an assessment process that assesses an individual’s non-formal and informal learning to determine the extent to which that individual has achieved the required learning outcomes, competency outcomes, or standards for entry to, and/or partial or total completion of, a qualification.

RPL is a form of assessment that acknowledges skills and knowledge gained through:

  • Formal/Informal training conducted by industry or education
  • Work experience
  • Life experience

The main principle of RPL focuses on the outcomes rather than when or where the learning occurred. Evidence of competency is collected by the applicant and submitted to the nominated assessor and assessment is made based on the required industry standard within the relevant training package unit of competency. Refer to Recognition Policy and Credit Transfer Policy for details.

At enrolment of all learning programs MARS’s code of practice states that all candidates for assessment will be offered RPL.  This is reiterated in the student handbook and acknowledged in writing.

 “Recognition of prior learning is an assessment process that involves assessment of an individual’s relevant prior learning (including formal, informal and non-formal learning) to determine the credit outcomes of an individual application for credit.” (Source: AQF)
