General Questions

Will McKkr’s issue my qualification?

McKkr’s is not a Registered Training Organisation. We have partnered with various recognized RTOs who review the portfolio submitted by McKkr’s on behalf of the applicant. The RTO will issue the accredited Qualification on applicant meeting all the required criteria.

Which is better in order to get a qualification, studying the course or applying for RPL?

RPL is a quicker alternative to get a qualification. In some cases, you may still need to study, but only those few units where you are not competent. It is more convenient and cheaper to get a qualification through RPL than by studying the course. Most important benefit is that you continue working and do not have to take time off from work.

Can I get Credit Transfer for RPL based on my existing qualifications?

If you have formal qualifications that are recognized, you could be eligible for Credit Transfer. Units of Competency from other qualifications can be used to complete RPL, provided that the qualifications and/or units of competency can be mapped to the current qualification. For the remaining units that cannot be considered for RPL, McKkr’s can arrange completion of units through Online training.

Assessment and Evidence

How long will the Assessment take?

The RPL Assessment may generally take 2-4 weeks if the applicant provides all the evidence on time and in full as required and no further evidence is needed.

What is involved in the assessment process?

During the assessment process, you will be required to:

  • Answer questions about your work experience, skills and knowledge
  • Demonstrate your skills and knowledge by completing practical tasks or showing your assessor how you would complete a task, and
  • Provide supporting evidence such as a resume, job description, reports from employers/supervisors etc.

The evidence must confirm that you have shown competence over a period of time and can work under different conditions.

What does "Portfolio of Evidence" include?

Assessment for RPL will be based on the evidence to support the competencies held. The Assessor requires a Portfolio of evidence that can include, but not limited to, resume, copies of certificates and qualifications, licences, position descriptions held, samples of work, photos and videos of work undertaken, task sheets / job sheets, log books, training records, professional memberships, awards, performance appraisals and more. Assessors will ask for specific evidence requirements for each Unit of Competency with advice on the sufficiency, currency, and validity of the evidence.

Should the copies of evidence be certified?

If we have any doubts about the authenticity of documentation or evidence submitted, a Statutory Declaration signed by a JP will be asked for.

How much evidence is needed to apply for RPL?

Instead of focusing on quantity of evidence, ensure the quality of the evidence demonstrates that you are competent against the criteria for the unit of competency.
