RPL or Recognition of Prior Learning assesses the ICT skills that an individual without any ICT or tertiary ICT qualification brings along from his professional experience and exposure. The RPL assessing authority, Australian Computer Society (ACS), assesses the skills that the applicant possesses in this domain before he is allowed visa towards Australian migration. And, they do that by assessing the applicants with ICT or non-ICT qualifications. While the applicants who possess desired ICT qualifications can do that by submitting the desired documents that validate their qualifications, the non-ICT background applicants need to submit the ACS RPL Report Form.

The opportunity allows such applicants a fair chance to showcase the skills they have acquired through working professionally over these years. They might not have had the opportunity to acquire ICT qualifications through a degree or diploma in Australian universities, but they have acquired the required skills. And, this has been possible through several years of experience in the professional ICT d. Through RPL they can showcase the “Key Areas of Knowledge”.
