Follow The Steps

Free Skills Assessment

At SkillsWave Global, we partner with registered and qualified RTOs to help us assess your skills. This part of the process is entirely free and will enable us to determine if you should pursue gaining a notable qualification in this way. Your file will be assigned to one of our experienced consultants, who will look after your entire RPL process. This one-to-one communication will ensure that you get the best customer service from us.

Experience Portfolio

The dedicated consultant that has been assigned to your RPL certification assessment will then provide you with assistance through the process of gathering the evidence needed for your experience portfolio. This may include any certificates and qualifications (informal or formal), transcripts, videos, photos, samples, letters of reference and recommendation, your current resume and examples from your current and past employment. 

Review of Evidence

After the assigned RTO has assessed your portfolio, the consultant may look for additional evidence from you. Suppose there are any areas where you are lacking in experience or skills. In that case, you may be assigned a trainer to help you fill in the gaps in your expertise to better your case for an official qualification or certification. 

You’re qualified!

Skills Wave Global partners with RTOs that offer qualifications and certifications that are recognised nationally and are the same as those you achieve through formal study. Once your assessment and portfolio have been accepted, you will be given a relevant and recognised qualification that can then be used in your petition for a raise, promotion or the search for better employment.
