RPL – Personal Trainers Course

To apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) or Recognition of Current Competency (RCC) for a unit of competency or the whole course, please follow the steps below.

Once completed, submit all applicable forms WITH your supporting evidence to [email protected] or mail: Suite 4/333 Mitcham Rd, Mitcham, Victoria, 3132 to: ‘Att: Program Manager – RPL Application’

An RPL application may take between 10-21 business days to process from when we receive your completed forms and supporting evidence. We will then map out your RPL, and email you with details of:

  • if an Initial RPL demonstration* is required,
  • any gaps that may need to further evidence, (including practical demonstrations*)
  • what RPL/RCC you have been awarded,
  • the units and/or assessment tasks you may still need to complete, and
  • the amended course cost (if applicable). This includes a price range for being able to provide further evidence (including demonstrations if required).

You must then approve and sign your RPL summary if you wish to enrol. Please note: All RPL applications will be processed and agreed PRIOR to your enrolment being approved.

*What is an Initial RPL Demonstration? – As I’m sure you will understand, there is a lot involved in mapping a person’s previous experience against the Training Package course requirements. An Initial RPL Demonstration is a chance for ACFB and yourself to see if you have the required skills and knowledge to proceed with the RPL application. Please note: This is only an Initial demonstration and does NOT form part of the demonstrations required for the RPL process. A course deposit may be required if your RPL application includes practical demonstrations.

What our students are saying about our Courses

I feel prepared to work in the industry as I have been given the opportunity to complete many clinics with a wide variety of clients. I enjoyed the flexibility offered and the knowledge of the trainers was outstanding.

Annabel

Being able to complete this course so close to home has helped not only for the future work possibilities but enable me not to miss out too much at home with my family while still studying.

Bronwyn

The teachers all have valuable years of experience to share and equip us with whatever we need to know. I will be returning to ACFB to continue on with Myotherapy myself later this year.

Fiona

I would absolutely recommend ACFB to others not only for the course content but the trainers professionalism and the variety of backgrounds that they bring to the course. Plus the clinic is really good practice.

Lisa

I would have no hesitation recommending ACFB to other students. Teachers are great and course quality is high.

Ross

Everything. The course, the content, the clinics, the trainers, people that I studied with. Definitely a positive experience.
