Skills Recognition via Credit Transfer

Skills Recognition at CIT is Credit Transfer (CT) or Recognition of Prior learning (RPL). For more information on applying for RPL go to https://cit.edu.au/study/enrolling/status/recognition_of_prior_learning.

Am I eligible?

If you have previously studied with an Australian Registered Training Organisation (RTO) you will have results on an official transcript/record of results and/or on your USI digital transcript. These results will have a program/qualification name, national code and then a list of the units of competency/subjects with name and national codes.

Results gained after 2015 should be recorded on your Unique Student Identifier (USI) record at http://usi.gov.au/.  All results prior to 2015 will be recorded on an official transcript/record of results from the RTO you studied with.

When you have identified the course/program you want to obtain credit in you will need to check on Training.gov.au to see if any of the units of competency/subjects you hold are part of the course/program or if any of you units of competency/subjects are equivalent to those in the course/program.  If yes you are eligible for Credit Transfer.

What do I need to provide?

A certified copy of your official transcript/record of results from an Australian RTO (ensure you have positive results against the units of competency/subjects you are using as evidence).

Results gained after 2015 should be recorded on your Unique Student Identifier (USI) record at http://usi.gov.au/. All results prior to 2015 will be recorded on an official transcript/record of results from the RTO you studied with.

Or

Provide a copy of your USI transcript and give permission for CIT to view your USI results on the USI site (this can be done on the USI website at usi.gov.au).
