Recognition of Prior Learning is an assessment process that assesses the individual’s relevant prior learning to determine the credit outcomes of an individual application for credit.
BCTA will ensure that your prior learning and existing skills are recognized, irrespective of how or where they have been acquired.
Credit transfer is awarded when a student has completed the units required for a qualification at another Registered Training Organisation.
BCTA provides credit transfer free of charge. Credit Transfer is only awarded to units of competency that have been deemed by the Training Package as having ‘equivalent competency outcomes’.
BCTA does not require a student to repeat any unit or module in which they have previously been assessed as competent. Where a student provides suitable evidence of having successfully completed a unit or module at another Registered Training Organisation, BCTA will award a Credit Transfer. Prior to awarding a credit transfer on the basis of qualification, statement of attainment, or record of results, BCTA will review the authenticity of the evidence provided by the student.
To apply for Credit Transfer, a student must fill the following form and submit it to the Administration.
