Recognition of Prior Learning

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process designed to recognise previous formal or informal learning, work and life experiences that the student may have had to the extent that they are relevant to the course outcomes. The RPL process allows students to receive recognition under these circumstances and therefore enable them to focus more on areas they need to achieve competencies in order to gain their qualifications. Students who believe they already have some of the competencies in the course may apply for RPL. An essential requirement of RPL is that the student can prove that he/she currently had the required competencies. Student will be advised about the RPL process and also made aware of the RPL before enrolment and even during orientation. Student must apply for RPL before enrolment but no later than 2nd week of the commencement of the studies. Student must fill application form and attach copies of verified documents to support the application. The application form and documents can be submitted via email at or at CMI reception. Student can seek more information about the RPL process in student Handbook available at CMI’s website or by making an appointment with Student service officer at CMI campus.
