Introduction
Skills assessment - CPC50210 Diploma of Building and Construction (Building)   
Introduction  
Use this skills assessment form to give you an idea as to whether you would be successful in an RPL application for a unit/s. Scroll down the form, click on the relevant unit code to open the form up for that unit and select from the drop down list the relevant number of times you have performed that task yourself.   
Once you have provided a response for each unit, and/or previous study option, go to the 'summary' section. This will summarise the likelihood of whether you would be successful in an RPL application.   
The units that you can provide a response to are listed below. They are also indicated whether they are a core or elective unit. In order to achieve the full qualification, you need to complete thirteen (13) core units and five (5) elective units. However you can RPL any number of units, you can complete the remainder required by normal enrolment. More information on the qualification can be found at:  https://training.gov.au/TrainingComponentFiles/CPC08/CPC50210_R2.pdf  
If we can help with anything at all while you are completing this form, or if you have any questions about anything else, please don't hesitate to contact us on 1300 797 123 or email info@pcdtraining.edu.au

Summary
Summary  
Here is a summary of the possibility of RPL based on your responses:  
Unit Likelihood  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
   
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
   
No = You will not be able to gain an RPL, you will need to enrol in the unit and complete it normally.  
Unlikely = it is extremely unlikely you would be successful in an RPL application based on your responses. We highly recommend to complete under normal enrolment, however the choice is yours.  
Likely = it is quite possible that you could apply for, and be granted, RPL for the unit. However this is based on you providing suitable and satisfactory evidence in addition to completing a quizz, experience video, work history, etc.  
Possibly = depends on what units you completed for the relevant course/s. We will need to check your academic transcript to confirm you have completed the required unit/s.  
Please complete the details below and click the 'submit' button. If it looks like you can apply for RPL for a unit/s, we will be in touch soon to advise on the next step. If it is unlikely that you would be successful in an RPL, we will contact you to advise how normal enrolment works and if you would like more information, etc.
