Delivery & Assessment

There are theory and practical training and assessment components to the course.

You may be able to seek recognition for your previous studies or experience. Civil Train offers Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), Recognition of Current Competency (RCC) and Credit Transfer (CT) for this qualification.

Credit Transfer

Credit transfer involves assessing a previously completed course or subject to see if it provides equivalent learning or competency outcomes to those required within the current course of study.


Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and Recognition of Current Competency (RCC) provides students with an opportunity to have their current skills and competencies recognised.
These skills and competencies may relate to units that they are about to commence and as a result may exempt them from studying these units.
