*Credit transfer: This is for candidates who have recently completed their trade qualification and is also available to apprentices in their third or fourth year.

The units of competence will be marked as credit transfers upon producing a recognised academic record showing a list of units that have been deemed competent from a previous qualification, for example, AUR30612. Any units not listed on the record that make up the units in the course will have to be completed through the RPL process.

*Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL): This is for qualified automotive technicians or experienced industry personnel. To complete the RPL process, you will be required to produce sufficient evidence against the ten (10) units of competence listed as part of the qualification. This will include collection of work evidence (job cards), completion of written questions, and having a third party signatory to confirm competence. Once the evidence has been submitted and assessed, the units will be marked as competent.
