Diploma of Customs Broking – Recognition of Prior Learning & Experience

  • Are you already a licensed Customs Broker?
  • Are you interested in having your prior learning and experience matched to the learning outcomes of the Diploma of Customs Broking?


Recognition of prior learning (RPL) is defined as follows:

Recognition of prior learning is an assessment process that involves assessment of an individual’s relevant prior learning (including formal, informal and non-formal learning) and experience to determine the credit outcomes of an individual application for credit in one or more units of the Diploma of Customs Broking.

This is underpinned by the definition of credit as follows:

Credit is the value assigned for the recognition of equivalence in content and learning outcomes between different types of learning and/or qualifications. Credit reduces the amount of learning required to achieve a qualification and may be through credit transfer, articulation, recognition of prior learning or advanced standing.

Recognition of prior learning explained

Recognition of Prior Learning facilitates the progression of students through qualifications by giving credit for learning outcomes they already have achieved. Credit outcomes may allow for entry into a qualification and/or provide credit towards the qualification.

Credit given may reduce the time required for a student to achieve the qualification.

RPL broadens access into formal learning by enabling credit to be given for student achievement though other formal, non-formal or informal learning.

RPL involves issuing organisations undertaking an assessment of each individual who applies to determine the extent to which that individual’s previous learning is equivalent to the learning outcomes of the components of the destination qualification.
