RPL for the BSB51615 Diploma of Quality Auditing

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a powerful, streamlined and fast-track approach to gain a qualification for an industry experienced professional.

RPL is an evidence-based assessment process, conducted at the unit level. In some cases people get RPL for all units, and therefore the whole qualification. In many cases it’s a matter of gaining some units via RPL, and others via learning and assessment activities.

How do I get RPL for the BSB51615 Diploma of Quality Auditing?

Let’s look first at the units of competency.

There are eight units that make up the Diploma. These are the ones we typically offer:

  • BSBAUD402 Participate in a quality audit
  • BSBAUD501 Initiate a quality audit
  • BSBAUD503 Lead a quality audit
  • BSBAUD504 Report on a quality audit
  • BSBRSK501 Manage risk
  • BSBPMG513 Manage project quality
  • BSBMGT516 Facilitate continuous improvement
  • BSBSUS501 Develop workplace policy and procedures for sustainability

A typical starting point is to review the units in general and see which ones you would likely be able to prove you’re already competent in.

Can I use units I already hold from other qualifications?

Possibly! This is called credit transfer. Credit transfer is when someone holds one or more units that fit with the qualification’s “packaging rules.” Those rules are (summarised and simplified):

  • Total number of units to get the BSB51615 Diploma of Quality Auditing = 8
  • This qualification has no core units.
  • Of the 8 units selected:
    • 3 units must be selected from Group A (below)
    • 2 units must be selected from Group A or Group B, or from any other currently endorsed Diploma with a BSB code (e.g. a BSB50618 Diploma of Human Resources Management)
    • 3 units may be selected from Group A, Group B, or any other currently endorsed Training Package
    • ** If not listed below, 1 unit may be selected from either a Certificate IV or Advanced Diploma qualification.

** if you’re a TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment graduate, this means you may be able to use one of the units from this qualification.

What evidence do I need to supply for RPL?

Each unit has different requirements and we must address them to be able to award RPL. As it’s an evidence-based process, a person must supply evidence to demonstrate they have the skills, knowledge and experience to gain RPL.

While each unit may seem onerous in its evidence requirements, you will notice after a while that evidence used for one unit could actually apply to a number of different units.

Use the following guide to help you determine what evidence you could supply for each unit. These are all suggestions and by no means the only evidence that could be supplied. Our assessors are happy to sign non-disclosure agreements for sensitive evidence or you’re welcome to redact sensitive information such as names.
