Why you should get RPL for Your Plumbing and Drainage Experience

Have you got plumbing experience but nothing to show for it?  A formal qualification might be the step you’re looking for to help achieve your career goals. However, going back to school and studying the same topics you’ve already mastered in real life can feel like a waste of time and money. Fortunately, Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) offers a quicker, more efficient way to gain a nationally recognised plumbing qualification.

Get qualified with a Certificate III in Plumbing – CPC32420

RPL assessments for the Certificate III in Plumbing – CPC32420, which is open to experienced plumbers who have extensive experience in plumbing, local students who have completed part of their studies in the country, or tradies with overseas qualifications. With RPL, you can use your training, skills, and past work experience as evidence of accomplishment, saving you time and money.

Fastrack your way to a plumbing licence

Having a plumbing and drainage licence enables you to work on construction products where trade licences are mandatory, and can also lead to more significant job opportunities and a higher earning potential as a business owner.

By completing the Certificate III in Plumbing – CPC32420, your skills and knowledge needed to obtain your plumbing licence in Australia are recognised.

How Skills Certified Can Help You Achieve Formal Recognition

OZCAREER has an extensive network of RTO partners that can convert your experience, skills, knowledge or overseas qualifications into a nationally recognised Australian qualification. The RPL assessment process can often be completed using existing evidence of your skills and may not require additional study.

Our simple RPL process

Our unique RPL assessment process only takes 4 simple steps. 

Step 1: Free Skills Check

Speak to Skills Certified Australia about your career goals and allow them to guide you towards the qualification that will help you achieve them.

Step 2: Portfolio of Experience

A dedicated consultant will guide you through the process of putting together a portfolio of evidence. This portfolio can contain overseas qualifications, transcripts, certificates, photos and videos, samples of work, letters of reference, and your current resume.

Step 3: Evidence Review

Once an RTO has assessed your portfolio, the assessor assigned to your case may be in touch if any additional evidence is required. If there are any weak areas, the RTO may assign a trainer to upskill you at no cost.

Step 4: You’re Qualified!

Once your portfolio has been reviewed and accepted, you will receive your qualification, which is nationally recognised in Australia and is the same as the qualification you would receive from full-time study. These qualifications can be useful for licensing or immigration purposes.
