Credit Transfer (CT) allows a Learner to apply for a credit for a unit if they have already completed and been assessed as competent in a unit that is equivalent to one in the current qualification of enrolment. To apply for a credit transfer, the Learner must complete an Indie CT Form during the enrolment process. The Learner must also provide evidence demonstrating successful completion of the unit, in the form of a training certificate or transcript.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is the acknowledgment of a Learners skills and knowledge acquired through previous relevant training, work or life experience, which may be used to recognition in a unit or whole course. Learners may apply for RPL at the enrolment process by accessing the Indie RPL Kit. The Learner must supply evidence to substantiate the claim for RPL to be applied. This may be in the form of a portfolio of all relevant documentation and must be assessed by Indie for RPL to be granted. Unlike credit transfer, the Learner has not previously been assessed as being competent and must go through an assessment process to be awarded RPL.

There are no pre-requisites for this qualification as it is at a foundation level. However as part of the enrolment process Indie will conduct a Pre-Training Review of current competencies.

The Pre-Training Review will:

  • identify any competencies previously acquired Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), or Credit Transfer (CT)
  • ascertain the most appropriate qualification for each Learner to enrol in,
  • establish that the proposed learning strategies and materials are appropriate for each Learner
  • determine current language, literacy, numeracy, oral communication and digital literacy skills in relation to course suitability

At the end of the course (Completion or Withdrawal), the Learner will be issued their certificate (Statement of Attainment or Full Qualification) within 30 calendar days via registered post. The exception to this is the certificate will not be issued if any Learner fees remain outstanding. All Learners are invited to attend an Indie graduation ceremony. Graduations are held throughout the year to celebrate Learner’s success and achievements. Friends and family are invited to attend and help celebrate these achievements.
