Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) acknowledges the experience, training and assessment that applicants have already undertaken, which may provide exemptions from training time, assessment or other training components as required by the colleges.
Registrars who will undertake a post-graduate year term, completing hospital units in their first year on the AGPT program will not need to apply for RPL.
All other registrars need to ascertain if they have any RPL they can claim:
• RACGP – hospital time, pre-approved extended skills or pre-approved Advanced Rural Skills Training (ARST) for RACGP
• ACRRM – core clinical training, ACRRM approved primary rural remote training or pre-approved Advanced Specialised Training (AST)
