    Recognition of Prior Learning/Credit:

    When you enrol into a program, ensure that you let our staff know if you have achieved any qualifications previously. If you can provide a copy (either certified by a Justice of the Peace or the original sighted by one of the MBA NSW Training team), you may be able to be granted Credit for a unit or units of competency that you have previously achieved.

    If you have previous experience working in the building and construction industry, you may apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). RPL is a process where your existing skills and knowledge are recognised and you are exempted from needing to undertake a full learning program. 

    To apply for Credit or RPL, contact our office and speak with one of our Coordinators.


    For each participant who is eligible for a Smart and Skilled funded program, a Student Contribution Fee is required to be paid, either by the participant or their employer. Fees may vary depending on the individual participant's circumstances, location and previous experience.

    Where a participant undertakes an individual unit of competency by Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), the fee for this unit is reduced by 50%.

    Where a participant is granted Credit Transfer for a unit of competency that they have previously achieved, the fee for this unit is waived.

    For any questions related to refunds, please contact our office on (02) 8586 3588.
