If you already have experience or knowledge in a course and MAST NSW recognises this, you can gain recognition through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). MAST NSW has a formal process to assess your prior learning, and please Contact Us to discuss further and apply for RPL.

Where you are granted RPL for one or more units of competency, your student fee will be adjusted.
