RPL Information

Kinesiology Schools Australia
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) Policy

RPL is an assessment process that assesses the competency(s) of an applicant that may have been acquired through formal, non-formal and informal learning to determine the extent to which that individual meets the requirements specified in the HLT52415 Diploma of Kinesiology qualification. Learners are able to have their competency from prior learning and work experience recognised in this qualification should they meet the following rules of evidence: RULES OF EVIDENCE Validity: The assessor is assured that the learner has the skills, knowledge and attributes as described in the module or unit of competency and associated assessment requirements. Sufficiency: The assessor is assured that the quality, quantity and relevance of the assessment evidence enables a judgement to be made of a learner’s competency. Authenticity: The assessor is assured that the evidence presented for assessment is the learner’s own work. Currency: The assessor is assured that the assessment evidence demonstrates current competency. This requires the assessment evidence to be from the present or the very recent past. Applications for RPL will be assessed on an individual basis. Each applicant must:
    • Fill in the RPL cover sheet and pay the application fee set by the KSA campus.
    • Students need to provide the necessary evidence documentation to demonstrate their competency in accordance with the competency requirement of the relevant qualification for which they are applying for RPL. This evidence must be submitted with the RPL application.
    • It is the responsibility of the student to compile the evidence. Consultation with a trainer may be required prior to enrolment.
    • On some occasions there may be significant work in matching the units of competency for RPL’s when it is not a direct credit transfer. Each KSA campus must clearly outline the cost of RPL assessment for each unit. Practical Assessment of RPL may require an additional fee.
    • If the original language of the document is not English it must be interpreted and signed off by a JP that it is a true interpretation of the original. All costs involved are to be covered by the applicant.
    • If your RPL claim is not successful, the application fee paid is not refundable and will be considered as assessment fees for the RPL process.


KSA accepts and provides credit to learners for units of competency where these are evidenced by AQF certification documentation issued by any other RTO or AQF authorised issuing organisation, or authenticated VET transcripts issued by the Registrar. Students may apply for credit transfer on enrolment. If a student is successful with a credit transfer, that is, an exact unit match – there is no fee. Students should note the units of competencies from HLT07 training package are not equivalent to the competencies in HLT Release 2 Training Package. There have been significant changes to the elements and performance criteria of every unit. There are new evidence requirements for assessment including volume and frequency requirements as well as significant changes to knowledge evidence. KSA will provide opportunities for students to update to these units where applicable.
