    • Hi Matt,
      Thank you for your enquiry into our Certificate IV in Government via Recognition of Prior Learning. We have emailed you more information in regards to our process. The best place to start is to send through to info@scopetraining.com.au a brief email with either a position description, current resume attached and/or a quick paragraph on your work history in relation to your work. We will then assess your suitability – this comes at no cost and you are not obligated to go ahead. It allows both parties to be informed and start on the same page.

      Please note the big difference with our process is that our staff do all the mapping work not you. This makes this a time saving process for our students. While you will be asked to supply evidence, we will be doing the time consuming work. Looking forward to hearing from you.
