      Hello Peter,

      The RPL course is typically set for completion at 6-8 weeks. That is to say, you can submit all evidences and complete the requirements needed to accomplish the course in that timeframe. The course’s speed of completion would be dependent on you and how fast you can submit the necessary materials.

      A course advisor should be in touch with you real soon answer your enquiries and discuss our best price guarantee. 🙂
