RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING (RPL)
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is not a registration category/designation but the systematic process which scores your acquired competencies in lieu of your Built Environment qualification (NQF Level 7).
This means you need to apply for a category of registration in which you are competent for and have more than ten years relevant experience.
The RPL route of application follows two (2) phases:
In the first (1st) phase, you apply through the normal Council application process, submitting your reports. The assessors will then assess your competencies acquired and identify the category you best fit, CPM or CM. If perceived competent you will then be recommended for RPL.
The second (2nd) phase: the applicant will have to pay the RPL fee. Once paid, you can request briefing about the process and you will be required to compile the Portfolio of Evidence as per the prescribed format. The POE will be assessed. If he/she is successful, he/she will be recommended for the professional interview.
