Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

Benefits of RPL

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

How it works

The RPL process is as follows:

1. The applicant submits required information (CV, PD) for ANZIIF’s preliminary review

2. ANZIIF conducts a preliminary review of information

3. ANZIIF determines eligibility for RPL assessment and/or study pathway

4. The eligible applicant applies and pays for RPL assessment

5. The eligible applicant submits a portfolio of evidence

6. ANZIIF conducts an RPL assessment (portfolio of evidence and video teleconference interview)

7. ANZIIF advises the RPL outcome to the candidate

If successful, the candidate will be issued a Statement of Attainment listing the competencies achieved.
