Why are RPL learnerships a good idea?

Despite the obvious benefits of RPL Learnerships, many organisations do not currently offer them to their staff. This could be because the process seems daunting and admin-intensive. This isn’t however the case at all.

“CBM Training’s RPL Learnership is easy and painless to implement”, says Christopher Hersov, Managing Director of CBM Training Pty Ltd.
Recognition of Prior Learning was formed to offer previously disadvantaged individuals a chance to be assessed in order to qualify for a national certificate that is recognised by governing boards.
