Recognition RPL Questions
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) ensures individuals with employment experience are given the opportunity to convert that knowledge and practical application of skills to nationally recognised qualifications. This allows individuals to move between employment sectors with qualifications that are recognised and ensures ongoing competitiveness in the marketplace between all age groups.
CLET RPL process is an additional way to assess applicants knowledge, skills and abilities against the criteria for qualifications they wish to be assessed against. The assessment of suitability is conducted using current and former industry professionals and RPL is NOT awarded unless substantial evidence is provided. However, to assist applicants from specialist industries such as policing and military, CLET has conducted extensive mapping against highly recognised training, rank and positions within these areas to reduce the amount of paperwork required to satisfy eligibility.
Once the RPL application form has been completed and submitted and evidence to support this is received, it takes approximately 14 days for the initial assessment to be completed, and then up to an "additional" 14 days for the final assessment to be completed, once we have been advised by the applicant of their preferred options following initial assessment. All applicants should then be in a position to choose whether to proceed to the award of any of the qualifications within 28 days (7-10 days for providers/insurers) of submitting their application.
PLEASE NOTE: This period of 28 days may be longer depending on the complexity of each individual assessment and the amount of assessment applications CLET has received at that time.
CLET staff work 7 days in the attempt to offer the best service possible for all our RPL applicants.
MAKE CONTACT: If you have not heard from CLET staff within these time frames, please give us a call on 1300 760 605 or live chat on our website during business hours or email: email@example.com, as sometimes our completed assessments, sent via email, do not reach the intended recipient, but our records will show it has been sent.
The best approach would be to select all the relevant qualifications on the Request for Assessment form on the website at Legal RPL and then let the RPL team conduct the assessment against them all to see what you may be eligible for. Obviously, the most relevant are going to be the Business Administration (Legal), the other generic Business Administration and Business qualifications, and the Legal Services. She can select all of the different levels of these qualifications and the RPL team will assess accordingly. There are no fees associated with the assessment process, so there is nothing to lose by having a full and comprehensive assessment.
The sort of evidence we would require for the RPL process is any documentation that supports her years in the legal sector, such as letters of employment, sample work, position descriptions etc. This is not always easy to find, so a statutory declaration is also an option, which you could create from your resume.
We have representatives from the legal sector on the RPL team so they will know what they are looking at once they see your resume and any supporting documentation. They can do additional checks with previous employers in an anonymous capacity too.
Unfortunately, the Government funding is only available for the actual full study program and cannot be applied to the RPL process. However, there is no obligation to proceed with the award of the qualifications once the assessment is complete, so you can go through the whole process for no cost, and then make a decision at the very end. The assessment remains on file indefinitely for her to access the qualifications approved at any time in the future.
The advantage of having these qualifications is you will have nationally recognised qualifications to demonstrate your many years of experience. This will make you more competitive in the job sector, but is also what you deserve.
Police Applicant Questions
College for Law, Education and Training provide people with the opportunity to study courses from our Certificate II in Justice Services up to the Advanced Diploma of Justice to increase their chances of success into a policing career. Other relevant courses include our Certificate IV and Diploma of Justice Studies, all Nationally Recognised.
We have been preparing potential police applicants across Australia for 9 years and have helped over 400 of our students to become police officers.
If you have not been passing the selection process or wish to best prepare yourself, you need a deeper level of preparation which includes solid study to understand the Australia justice system and improve your computer, analytical and literacy skills.
It is imperative that to prepare yourself correctly you should study at least a Certificate III and our most relevant course is the Certificate III in Business Administration (Legal) or Certificate III in Community Services Work. If you wish to be more prepared and competitive we offer the Certificate IV and Diploma of Justice Studies and Advanced Diploma of Justice.
Remember, the preparation you need relates to the knowledge and skills 'you personally need' to be successful. If the police have not stipulated that you need to study, remember that their testing is designed to discover if you can perform at a certain level to ensure you can not only pass the academy training, but meet the academic demands expected of police officers.
All of our courses includes comprehensive psychometric assessment testing and police interview preparation on top of the Nationally Recognised study and research skills included.
When applying for the police in your State or Territory of choice ensure you check any mandatory entry requirements the police request as a minimum and then to add merit and be competitive you need to be the best prepared that you personally can be.
See our Police Studies page for more information

Each course page has a drop down accordion called: Entry Requirements that provides a list of entry requirements, if any, other than English language skills.
If you still need further assistance, you can contact us on 1300 760 605 during business hours or email email@example.com anytime.
VET-STUDENT-LOANS are only available on selected and Government approved Diploma's and above. Many Diploma's, and ALL Certificate IV, III and II qualifications do not qualify for VET-STUDENT-LOANS with any training college.
CLET could apply to offer VET STUDENT LOANS, but simply, we choose not to for the following reasons:
- in many cases this elevates course fees and also encourages students to enter into a debt
- we cannot offer our landmark modern and flexible courses with NO assessment due dates under these government rules, which is a huge hit with our students
- CLET is dedicated to provide discounted prices for our students that can be paid off during your studies using an affordable INTEREST FREE payment plan, so when you finish your course and receive your certificate you will be debt free
CLET Course fees have not changed in over 10 years and in many courses they have been reduced.
CLET Payment plans can be tailored to fit your individual budget.
You can contact us on 1300 760 605 during business hours or email firstname.lastname@example.org anytime if you have any questions or would like to discuss your study budget and how we can help.
CLET Courses are from the same National Training Packages that TAFE use, however CLET courses are designed specifically with the industry (Jobs market) in mind to maximise our students employability knowledge and skills.
CLET is a registered training organisation (RTO) under the Australian Training framework, which provides us with the ability and permission to offer Nationally recognised courses.
This means CLET will provide you with exactly the same qualification/s you would receive if studied at TAFE, but because we are a private provider (not government funded), our focus is on service and willingness to work longer hours to ensure our students study needs are met to the highest standards.
If you still need further assistance, you can contact us on 1300 760 605 during business hours or email email@example.com anytime.
CLET has a number of courses that are approved for Austudy/Abstudy assistance, providing you are eligible to receive these payments.
If you need further assistance, you can contact us on 1300 760 605 during business hours or email firstname.lastname@example.org anytime.
When a course is completed, you will receive a Nationally Recognised Certificate, Diploma or Advanced Diploma depending on the course you have studied.
For any partially completed course a Statement of Attainment is issued.
All certificates are sent via Registered Post within 7 days of notification from teaching staff that you have successfully completed your studies.
Online educational software is amazing these days and there is nothing theoretical CLET can offer in a classroom that we can not offer online and we mean nothing. If fact online offers so much more than you will receive in a classroom.
WHY? because online is modern, portable and reliable, available 24/7 and resources remain up to date.
Students can ask as many questions as they wish and have a record of the answers. All assessments are submitted easily online and feedback and marks recorded for easy viewing.
Questions can be asked 24/7 and if urgent you can live chat or send an SMS, just as if you are putting your hand up in class.
Students access all study resources including unit guides, readings, videos, website links and PowerPoints on all devices anytime.
Courses likely to attract practical components such Community Services, Security and Fitness Courses will have practical work placement or workshops timetabled into the program when necessary.
CLET provide all study resources online for you to access 24/7.
However, if practical activities are required in your course criteria, such as work placement, industry visits and/or timetabled workshops for you to attend, these requirements are provided on the relevant course page and as part of the questions you are required to read and answer when you complete the 'Is this course right for me' questionnaire prior to enrolment.
If it is not mentioned as a requirement on your selected course page, then your course resources are available online 24/7 and assessment tasks are completed in your own time and submitted online for marking.
Inside the CLET online study area we have a student support tab in the menu that opens a page where you can send as many questions as needed directly to a dedicated student support officer who is just waiting to answer your questions.
There are two ways you can do this: using the send a message text box or simply live chat.
If necessary you can also request phone support.
If you have a question outside business hours you can still send your questions via the message system and they will be answered in the morning of the next business day.
However, if you have an urgent question outside business hours we provide a SMS number that you can use anytime for assistance.
For most CLET courses all assessments are completed, submitted and marked online. Confirmation of any requirement for attendance can be found on each course page under the heading 'Course Details'
CLET has invested heavily to provide our students with an easy to use online system available 24/7 that provides all the theoretically content for all courses.
These resources include a unit guide, readings, videos, text reader, assessment instructions, assessment submission areas that also provides teacher feedback and a record of your performance.
The availability of our online system allows for less class time for courses that have practical components, which provides for a more modern, flexible, convenient and cost effective study experience.
All courses offered by the College can be studied from home, at your own pace. You are provided with login details where you will have 24/7 access to your study resources using our Online Learning Management System and enjoy 7 day a week study support from teaching staff.
Courses offered by CLET are fully flexible with no due dates. All students will commence as a full time student and after the expiration of the full time study period they will convert to the fully flexible program. This will occur automatically and students do not need to take any action. The full time study periods are as follows, and are the periods approved by Centrelink and in accordance with Government training organisations:
- Accredited short program – 12 weeks

Extensions are available for all CLET courses to a maximum of 5 years from commencement. Once this period is exceeded students will no longer have access to the CLET online course management system and will need to re-enrol in their course if not completed and pay all relevant course fees.
There are assessments associated with each unit of competency which vary. There is a combination, across the whole qualification, of written tasks, audio tasks, online assignments and online quizzes, all submitted and completed online. They are all competency based, which means you have the opportunity to redo tasks following feedback from markers.
Unless otherwise stated under the Course Details heading on the course page, the whole course is done from your home or work and you do not need to attend any location for exams.
Yes and No.
CLET offers a positive online alternative to the traditional institutions where our students can move through the course at their own pace, with no assessment due dates.
Our students are provided access to their learning resources 24/7 with the ability to study and learn content and complete assessments without the need to participate in unnecessary group work unless the course criteria asks for this to occur. In this case, we include online group activities and engagement into our course and assessment design and advise students accordingly and how they can participate.
In addition to asking CLET staff questions, students have the ability to post questions for their trainers/assessors and read other students questions and answers provided by CLET staff inside their course online forums.
However, if group or team work is a requirement, we also offer students the opportunity to apply for recognition of prior learning (RPL), credit for prior study or complete the required tasks in their workplace or school if they prefer.

To make the most of your online learning experience, there are several technical requirements you will need to fulfil. To successfully participate in a CLET course, you will need one or more devices (PC, laptop, tablet) with an Internet connection, camera (web cam) speakers and a microphone.
You will also need access to Microsoft office software or similar to complete some assessment tasks.
In addition, up to date windows and Mac operating systems are recommended, plus latest flash player and PDF reader.
It is essential to you have the latest Chrome or Safari browser available. These are the two preferred browsers compatible with our online technology used for your course.
As a student, if technical assistance is required, you may send a request via our Student HUB and we are always available to offer advice on solutions to any hick ups you may be experiencing.
If you go to the accordion group on any course page and open Technical Requirements accordion, you can 'check your system' before enrolling.
At CLET we work very hard with and for our students and prefer to discuss any issues or concerns so they can be resolved quickly and easily. In many of our courses we cover good communication skills and how to manage conflict, so we would like to think this is practiced by all CLET staff and students as well.
We have a student HUB where you can send many requests for assistance. If for some reason you are just not satisfied with something, you may make a formal complaint to management.
It is our experience that this is seldom necessary as management are very hands on in CLET and monitor staff and student performance daily. But this facility is available if you deem it necessary and CLET will then follow our complaints policy and procedure to resolve your concern.
Training and Assessment
As part of the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTO's) 2015, an RTO’s training and assessment may only be delivered by trainers and assessors who have:
- the vocational competencies at least to the level being delivered and assessed
- current industry skills directly relevant to the training and assessment being provided, and
- current knowledge and skills in vocational training and learning that informs their training and assessment.
In addition, training and assessment may only be delivered by persons who have:
- Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (TAE40110 or TAE40116), or its successor*, or
- a diploma or higher level qualification in adult education.
Our RTO must also ensure that all trainers and assessors undertake professional development in the fields of:
- knowledge and practice of vocational training, and
- learning and assessment, including competency-based training and assessment.
These requirements are taken very seriously by CLET and you may visit the CLET team page to read through some of our profiles. If you look through both Kate Martin and Allen Williams profiles, it will be clear that as the owners of CLET they lead the way in this area.
Further, each course has the allocated trainer profiles available inside the 'Trainers' accordion and all trainer profiles are available inside the Study Cloud course induction area following enrolment.
From our research and over 18 years in this industry, CLET was the first RTO in Australia to offer flexible online training and assessment with NO assessment due dates.
In addition to this we have always allowed more time than TAFE and other RTO's for our students to participate in and submit assessments when YOU are ready, not the organisation.
Our standard maximum completion time for a course is two years with an additional allowance of a further 12 months if needed. See the relevant course page to confirm this period for that course.
In addition to this flexibility, if you do not get an assessment right the first time, we provide feedback and additional opportunities for you to make adjustments and resubmit.
The motto here at CLET: Failure is not an option! and all for some of the lowest fees available.
The strength of CLET lies in the real life experience that, combined with almost 25 years of teaching, allows the CLET team to inspire and motivate students. With a fully flexible study program designed to accommodate all aspects of a busy life, CLET leads the way in adapting study to the needs of students in the 21st century.
We pride ourselves on being at the forefront of technology, delivering comprehensive training and assessment using online resources inside our Study Cloud with access to their learning 24/7 on PC, Mac, and tablets.
External learning is now a very popular method of attaining quality education. It affords students significantly more flexibility (i.e. students can work full time and study), without compromising on high quality education.
Student focused and works naturally with independent study

CLET focuses on each student as an individual with the aim of ensuring that everyone has a fantastic study experience, learn more than they ever thought they were capable of, and achieve all their desired study goals.
All assessment tasks provide comprehensive assessment instructions, examples and templates when needed. In addition, you may contact your trainer or student support anytime to ask for clarification or assistance.
Student support during studies is extremely important. CLET is dedicated to provide our students with 7 day a week support Our Study Cloud is online seven days a week, ensuring that students can assessment assessment feedback, send questions and access support areas at all times.
When an assessment is marked students are notified by email and SMS.
All feedback is available for each assignment and can be accessed 24/7. All assignment style and live online assessments are accompanied with an additional marking guide completed by the assessor that shows how the student satisfied each of the assessment benchmarks and also explains any areas that may requirement improvements.
