Q:  Are you eligible for RPL?

To be eligible for a BSB50820 Diploma of Project Management through Recognition of Prior Learning, you must:

  • Have been working as a project manager for at least twelve months;

  • Be able to provide a range of documentation from at least two projects that you managed within the past two years

  • Have developed these project documents yourself (or substantially contributed to them) as project manager

  • Be able to demonstrate your knowledge of industry-standard project management concepts, terms, processes, tools and techniques by discussing these with your assessor.

Q:  Will my evidence be treated as confidential?

Yes. Your assessor will treat your comments and documentation as commercial-in-confidential material, and no copies of your project documentation will be kept.

Q:  How long does it take?

The process of collecting your documents and answering the knowledge questions can vary, depending on how much evidence you have access to – from as little as 1 week, to as long as 6 months. Once you have provided all required documents to your assessor, you will have a 2-hour assessment interview to validate your evidence and discuss your answers to the knowledge questions. After that, assuming that you have demonstrated competency in all required units, it normally takes around 10 working days to receive your qualification in the post.

Q:  What happens if I don't pass my unit of competency?

If you are found Not Yet Competent in any units of the BSB51415 Diploma of Project Management, then your assessor will discuss these with you during your assessment interview, and provide recommendations around how to fill these gaps. You will then have up to 6 months to provide the additional evidence required to achieve this qualification.  If, following your second assessment interview, you are still unable to demonstrate competency in any unit/s, then you will receive a Statement of Attainment for those units in which you were found Competent, along with a detailed Professional Development Plan outlining your assessor’s recommendations about how to develop your knowledge, skills and portfolio of evidence in order to achieve a result of Competent in the ‘gap’ units. A follow-up assessment can then be undertaken at a later date, to specifically target these gap units and achieve the Diploma of Project Management (additional fees apply).

Q:  Who will award my qualification?

Your qualification will be awarded by Elemental Projects (Australia) Pty Ltd (RTO Code: 45615).
