A credit transfer is the recognition that a unit of competency may be unit or component of the training program you are seeking to undertake. If you have any prior Nationally Recognised Certificates or Statements of Attainment completed within Australia, they may be eligible for Credit Transfer. If any of these unit title and codes identically matches the units that you are enrolled, you will be granted a Credit Transfer for that particular unit

Application for Credit Transfer must be made at the time of enrolment.


Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) means an assessment process that assesses the competency/s of an individual that may have been acquired through formal, non-formal and informal learning to determine the extent to which that individual meets the requirements specified in the training package or VET accredited courses.

Pearsons School of Floristry (aka PSF) is committed to and has implemented an effective skills recognition process in line with the requirements of the NSW Recognition Framework
