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.

Where a learner is successful in the RPL or Credit Transfer (CT) application, the units to be undertaken and course duration will be adjusted accordingly.
Where RPL is granted, learners do not have to participate in further training and assessment for skills and knowledge that they already possess.
