RPL will differ for each individual Practitioner.
If you can prove (to an acceptable standard) that you have the training and/or experience in a particular field / module in aesthetics, and can meet the requirements of the Award, then you can be credited for that part.
Through the process of RPL you can upgrade any existing certification, irrespective of where your original training was undertaken. This means you may be able to save time and money, but not having to complete parts of the course you have already completed.
