A Credit Transfer

25 Mar 2018   Shanti Gowans

A credit transfer (CT) is acknowledgement that a candidate has competently completed a unit in a qualification previously, and will therefore be exempt from having to repeat it. The RTO is not awarding a UoC, but simply recognising that the student has been awarded it elsewhere. It is an administrative not an assessment process.

The unit code and title must be the same for a direct credit transfer and must meet the packaging rules for the qualification being delivered.

If the unit has changed in some way, superseded but not equivalent, there is no credit transfer. In this case, perhaps
- a gap assessment can be used to address the differences in the superseded unit
- or the RPL process may be considered.
HIA charges a fee for this serivce.

To gain a direct credit transfer, the particular unit does not have to be on an RTO's scope. In other words, an RTO can grant a Credit Transfer on a Unit of Competency that is not on their scope because the RTO is not training/assessing the candidate. They already have competency.
