RPL Scheme

RPL is a certification program to provide recognition to the informal learning or learning through work to get equal acceptance as the formal levels of education. It aims to appreciate prior learning irrespective of the medium of achieving it. In short, RPL is a process of assessment of an individual’s prior learning to give due importance to learning as an outcome rather than learning as process.

To ensure that the candidates being assessed under RPL are also oriented to the standardized National Skill Qualification Framework (NSQF) levels, QP-NOSs that would be followed under RPL will be same as the one followed under fresh training.
