What is Recognition of Prior Learning?

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process that allows you to show Gymnastics Australia that you already have the knowledge and skills to safely coach gymnastics. If you are able to show evidence of your coaching abilities, you can gain a Gymnastics Australia Coach Accreditation. 

This process is also sometimes referred to as Recognition of Current Competence (RCC).

If you believe that you have already acquired the competencies as set down for a particular Gymnastics Australia accredited course, you may formally apply to have these skills recognised. Please read on for further details and how to apply.
