Have you taken a course at another institute (or at RRC) that is equivalent to a course you are taking now? Do you have life experience in an area that is equivalent to a course you are taking now? Maybe you should consider RPL.
It is not an effective and efficient use of resources if learners are having to relearn what they already know and can do. This also adds time, and sometimes additional costs, to the learner’s program. By providing opportunities for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), the college is better able to meet the needs of learners.
