Recognition of Prior
Learning in Project Management
Assessment for people who have experience and evidence but lack formal qualifications
Many people acquire knowledge and expertise through experience instead of formal education. This knowledge and expertise can be acknowledged through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), and credited with formal qualifications.
Living Planit conducts RPL assessments for the nationally recognised qualifications – BSB41515 Certificate IV in Project Management, BSB51415 Diploma of Project Management, BSB61215 Advanced Diploma of Program Management and BSB80415 Graduate Diploma of Portfolio Management
A Living Planit assessor will guide you to prepare and submit a portfolio of evidence for assessment. Your evidence will be assessed and if successful, an appropriate nationally recognised qualification will be issued.
To be eligible for a Recognition of Prior Learning assessment, you must:
- Have been working as a project manager for at least twelve months;
- Be able to provide a range of documentation from at least two projects, complex projects or real programs that you managed within the past three years
- Have developed these project plans yourself (or substantially contributed to them) as project manager, project director or portfolio manager
- Be able to demonstrate your knowledge of industry-standard project management concepts, terms, processes, tools and techniques, by answering some written knowledge questions and discussing these with your assessor.
How Does it Work?
Combined Assessment (RPL + AIPM)
Your portfolio of evidence can be simultaneously assessed for a nationally recognised qualification through RPL, and AIPM Certification at the level appropriate to your skills. There is an additional cost for the AIPM Certification assessment.
