How Does It Work

You will be asked to complete an RPL Application and provide evidence against each of the units. Where there are gaps in your evidence, a professional conversation with your assessor from Bradford Institute of Advanced Education may provide additional evidence. Your assessor may also ask you to provide further evidence to substantiate your claim of competency in a particular unit/s.

Where gaps in evidence remain – that is that you cannot be considered competent on the evidence provided, gap training will be made available to you. For gap training, you may be provided with workbooks and given assessments to complete. It is possible that gap training might include practical assessments.

What Is The Investment?

The cost of the program is $2199. A payment plan will be negotiated with you or you can use HUMM EZIPAY. Successful applicants will only receive certification when program payment is made in full. Please talk to Admin about your particular circumstances. We are here to help and can devise an alternative payment plan for you, if required. We will not ask you to pay any more that $1500 in advance of any service provided.
It is anticipated that only highly experienced corrections professionals who can provide high quality evidence will undertake this RPL program.

For those less experienced officers, traditional training and assessment is available. Please contact Admin for further details.
