Recognition of prior learning

RPL is the process that recognises skills and experience you currently have regardless of where and when the learning occurred. To apply for Recognition of Prior Learning you will need to complete the RPL form, which can be requested by emailing info@canterburyti.com.au.

For further information on CTI’s RPL process, please review, the student handbook posted which can be downloaded here.


All students have the option to be assessed in order to ascertain whether their Language Literacy and Numeracy skills are sufficient to successfully complete the training program. Those who require further support will be advised to seek this with a qualified expert; there are a number of training organisations able to provide this service. Suitable courses will be discussed at intake interview. Any costs incurred will be the responsibility of the student.
