RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is available, this requires the student providing evidence to the assessor that they understand all the parts (or elements) of each unit.

The RPL assessment process can include written questions, uploading documents that you have developed, supervisor testaments to demonstrate that you understand each of the unit elements. It may also include a conversation with the assessor.

RPL may be the right choice for those who can prove they have extensive industry experience and work skills. However often we find those with the knowledge, skip the learning materials and go straight to the assessments.

If you wish to use RPL, please contact Functional Nutrition Academy to assess your suitability.
