What is Recognition of Prior Learning?

Recognition of Prior Learning is a way that people can get their existing skills, knowledge and experience formally recognised, without having to attend training or do further study.
Any related formal qualifications that a person holds should be taken into account when they apply for recognition.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

RPL 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. (AQF, second edition January 2013)

CASA Competency Equivalency

During the developing of the AQF Aviation Training Package (AVI), the AQF qualifications and the associated unit competencies were developed with reference to CASR Part 61 Manual of Standards.

Therefore, there are competency equivalencies between CASA Issued qualifications based and the AQF qualifications.

Therefore, Becker Helicopters is able to apply RPL for recent CASA Issued Qualifications, ratings and endorsements for the issue of AQF Qualifications, units and skill sets.

RPL Assessment Fee

An RPL Assessment fee applies to each application for RPL based on CASA issued qualifications, rating and endorsements.

This fee covers the Assessors time to review and validate each application, the production of the AQF Certificates and documentation, and to maintain RTO compliance reporting obligations as a result of issuing AQF qualifications and documentation.

The following RPL Assessment Fees apply:

Application Type RPL Assessment Fee

Important:  Issue of AQF Certificates and Documents

The completion of the application form, and payment of the RPL fee does not guarantee the issue of AQF Certificates and documentation.

AQF Certificates and documentation are only issued when:

  • The student identify is verified through Proof of Identification (Drivers Licence, Passport or ASIC card)
  • A Unique Student Identifier (USI) is provided, and
  • Sufficient recent evidence of CASA issued qualifications, ratings and endorsements is sighted to demonstrate competency against the AQF qualifications and skills sets.


Upon receipt of the completed application form, an invoice is raised.  Upon receipt of payment of the RPL Fee, the application form is assessed, and if all is in order, the AQF Certificates and Documentation is issued within 10 working days, and delivery is arranged.
