Learn more about CAPLA’S fourth and final webinar in the 2014-2016 series on quality assurance for the recognition of prior learning (RPL) and its implications for practice.

Now that the RPL QA MANUAL is complete, we want to showcase its contents, share ideas and discuss recommendations, to ensure all users have confidence in RPL processes.  

This special session will provide:

  3. An overview of the Manual with special attention on its effectiveness for auditing, developing or improving existing human resource and RPL systems
  4. Examples of how RPL is being successfully integrated into organizations and institutions to support and promote the development of individuals within the workforce
