RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING RPL/ CREDIT TRANSFER
SBDI recognises qualifications issued by other RTOs. SBDI will accept and mutually recognise the qualifications and Statements of Attainment awarded by any other registered training organisation unless precluded by licensing requirements. We can also grant you Credit Transfer for subjects or units you have completed where equivalence can be established between the unit in your course, and the subject or unit you have completed.
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process where skills and knowledge that you have gained through work and life experience and other unrecognised training can be formally recognised.
During the entry process and interview stage SBDI will discuss with you the process and options for RPL. Suitability is often determined on how much experience you have in a certain area, your work history and previous training. If RPL is determined as a possibility for you, you will be provided with a kit that will guide you in working through each unit to determine relevant skills and experience and identify whether you would be able to provide the required evidence.

USI is needed for all students studying with SBDI. From 1 January 2015 for undertaking Nationally Recognised Training delivered by a Registered Training Organisation the student/s will need to have a Unique Student Identifier (USI).
