If you’re already working in the building and construction industry, Melbourne Polytechnic can provide you many opportunities for you to advance your career though qualifications and recognition of prior learning.
Consider the options below:
If you already have experience in the building and construction industry and want to obtain a formal qualification, you could be eligible to receive recognition of prior learning.
Recognition of Prior Learning acknowledges the experience you may already have from working on the job, and assesses your level of competency against individual units within a qualification.
Based on your experience, you may then receive credit to all or part of a qualification. For any parts of the qualification that you may not receive credit for, training to fill this gap is provided, and you can obtain the formal qualification.
If you have already obtained part of a qualification you may also be available for a credit transfer so that you do not need to complete these units again.
Recognition of Prior Learning is available for all building and construction courses. Please contact our office on 03 9269 8746 for more information.
