Learning Approach and RPL

Our blended learning approach is assessing applicants Recognised Prior Learning and Skills and offering Gap Training of Competencies required to perform the job to allow students to obtain their UEE20111 Certificate II in Split Air-conditioning and Heat Pump Systems Qualification.

After contacting NTI to discuss your suitability, applicants are required to complete the NTI application form and gather and submit their Recognised Prior Learning evidence such as Trades Certificates, White Cards, Transcripts of previously achieved results etc.

The ultimate aim of blended learning is to provide realistic practical opportunities for candidates and trainers to make learning independent, useful, sustainable and ever growing.

Face to Face

Gap Training is currently offered over 3 intensive days each month. Applicants simply choose the intake that best suits them and contact NTI about enrolling and beginning their RPL process. This Face to face training and assessment is conducted at our main campus at Kangaroo Point in Brisbane.

Recognised Prior Learning (RPL)

Recognition of Prior Learning is a process that recognises an individual’s current skills and experience regardless of where and when the learning occurred. Applications for RPL are based on whole competencies. Candidates can base their application on any combination of formal or informal training and education, work experience or general life experience.
