Recognition of Prior Learning

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process evaluating what you have learned either formally or informally by providing the opportunity to achieve a full or part ANZIIF qualification where appropriate.

For a detailed description of our RPL service please download our RPL Brochure.


RPL offers many benefits, including:

  • formal recognition of your skills and knowledge gathered through your work life
  • an internationally recognised qualification from the Asia-Pacific region’s leading insurance education and training provider
  • opportunities for career advancement
  • a domestic qualification for overseas professionals (working in Australia, New Zealand or elsewhere)
  • ANZIIF membership with accompanying membership benefits
  • ANZIIF post-nominal for use on your business cards, email signature and LinkedIN


The RPL process is as follows:

  • Submit required information for preliminary review
  • Preliminary review of information provided (CV; PD)
  • Receive eligibility for RPL assessment and/or study pathway
  • If eligible, apply for RPL with payment
  • Undergo RPL assessment (portfolio of evidence and teleconference interview)
  • Receive advice of RPL outcome

Candidates will be issued a Statement of Attainment listing the competencies achieved.

*RPL assessment is not available for Tier 1 and Tier 2 compliance, however credit may be applicable.

Where ASIC RG 146 competencies have been attained, credit can only be granted at the relevant level and insurance specialisation.

To establish whether your AQF qualification is similar to an ANZIIF course/qualification, you can check the competencies listed on your official Statement of Attainment issued by your RTO and compare against the competencies covered by ANZIIF Skills Units.
