      Hi Jason,

      Unfortunately, we offer a Recognition of Prior Learning Program (RPL). We qualify you by assessing evidence of your on-the-job experience under the supervision of a licensed tradesman.

      Hi Simon,

      It depends on the experience you have the industry. All our qualifications are nationally recognised, but for licensing requirements you will need to contact your state licensing regulator.

    We have an employee who has worked in the industry since the 70’s and has owned and operated his own panel beater business. Department Fair Trading have advised his qualifications are invalid and will need to redo the course. Are you able to assist in possible RPL’S? Is this course nationally recognised? What steps are required to proceed if applicable and the costing of the course. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Kind Regards
