REINSW offers Recognition for Prior Learning (RPL). RPL is a rigorous assessment method that assesses previous learning and experience against the requirements of the units of competency. REINSW recommends this assessment method be investigated as an option for individuals who are currently working in the real estate industry or hold current qualifications or units of competency relating to the real estate industry. REINSW requires individuals who are producing evidence for this assessment method to provide current evidence. Under REINSW's RPL policy, all current (within the last 18 months) evidence supplied must meet current industry standards.
