Learners are able to have their competency from prior learning and work experience recognised in this qualification through the following arrangements:
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)
RPL is recognition of prior learning or skills obtained from previous study or work/life experience. Learners, who through prior learning or experience believe they have gained competence in any of the skill areas, may be granted RPL upon substantiation of that claim.
QMTS Training offers RPL on enrolment and the trainer will work with the student to define the potential for a successful application process.
NB: RPL does not give the student a discount in course fees.
Students may also apply for a credit transfer upon enrolment.
Learners who have evidence in the form of AQF certification from any other RTO or authenticated VET transcripts issued by the Registrar or from an AQF authorised issuing authority for units of competency relevant to this qualification will be given credit upon enrolment.
Many students undertaking this course may have already completed the four units below as part of another Maritime qualification or as part of the MARSS00008 Shipboard Safety Skill Set.
- MARF027 Apply basic survival skills in the event of vessel abandonment
- MARF028 Follow procedures to minimise and fight fires on board a vessel
