RPL Done Well

Optin have developed an integrated strategy to deliver management training. It’s education, but it feels like business coaching/consultancy.  Our approach is based on adult learning principles and National competency standards with the added advantage of meeting issues specific to your business.

10 Things that make our RPL and gap training unique

  1. We use a Nationally recognised qualification, packaged to the needs of the business.
  2. Experienced industry trainers with appropriate qualifications
  3. We come to you, you don’t waste time travelling
  4. Workplace coaching and mentoring days
  5. Respect and recognition for students existing knowledge

Offering an effective Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) pathway for experienced workers is good educational practice. All RTOs have an RPL policy, but they mostly exist in name only. Our approach breathes life into RPL. Experiential learning is a valid and effective way of acquiring new skills.


It is thorough and empowering. It will give learners the confidence to continue building their skills and knowledge in the future.  It is consistent with the requirements of Commonwealth and State Governments
