Bradford Institute of Advanced Education RTO 45241 is offering experienced Corrections Professionals at supervisory or management level the opportunity to gain recognition of prior learning (RPL) for their current experience to gain a nationally recognised qualification – the CSC50115 Diploma of Correctional Administration.
Successful candidates will need to complete 8 units of competency comprising 2 mandatory core and 6 elective units. Elective units have been chosen to meet industry standard.
The Training Package prescribes the following units as Core to this qualification:
|CSCORG014||Use information to make critical decisions|

|CHCCCS003||Increase the safety of individuals at risk of suicide|
|BSBWOR501||Manage personal work priorities and professional development|
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 will be provided with workbooks and given written assessments to complete. It is possible that gap training might include practical assessments.
What Is The Investment?
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.
