Recognised Prior Learning

Recognised Prior Learning to Progress a Diploma of Project Management

If you have completed the PMI® Project Management  Professional (PMP) certification and are working in a fulltime Project Manager role, you are likely able to gain an internationally-recognised Diploma of Project Management qualification under the Australian Qualifications Framework through the Recognised Prior Learning option.

Your PMP certification must be valid to apply under the Recognised Prior Learning provisions with the Business Education Institute.

The difference between a certification and a qualification is that certifications require for you to keep maintaining professional development units, however a qualification you get to keep forever. Qualifications are often asked for during job recruitment.

The PMI® PMP certification and audit process is deemed to be rigourous and required you to have at least 35 hours of relevant training that meets the PMI requirements.   The Australian Qualification Framework (AQF) also aligns to the PMI® PMBOK international defacto standard.  This means that the Institute can utilise the PMI® PMP certification requirements and its ongoing professional develop unit process to show current and relevant competency from an educational perspective.

The Institute then requires workplace evidence and third party validation to ensure the quality of your meets with the AQF requirements.

Having then validated your educational and practical experiences and the fact that you would be a fulltime project manager or highly experienced project manager, you can be recognised with a Diploma level qualification.

Once having the qualification, you will not be required to maintain any professional development points, as qualifications are issued perpetually.
