What is RPL?

RPL is a way for you to gain your Certificate III in Nails based on your completion and evidence in a range of skills. This is primarily for those already in the industry that have gained their skills through the workplace but haven't gained the qualifications for it. You are expected to be able to confidently complete the units at a qualified standard using your prior skills and knowledge. Evidence is then gathered to assess your work though reference letters, skills videos, images etc. This qualification is assessed by the Adelaide Institute of Hair & Beauty (AIHB).

Once enrolled, you will be assigned a supervisor who will guide you through the units that need to be completed and who you will send your evidence to for pre-evaluation. Once all your units are complete to an acceptable standard based on your supervisor's opinion, your work will be sent off to be evaluated by AIHB.

National Recognition

These competencies have been drawn from the nationally endorsed industry training package the Hairdressing and Beauty Services Training Package (SHB).

On successfully completing the training and assessment, the qualification SHB30315 Certificate III in Nail Technology will be issued.

A transcript list all of the units of competence will also be issued. The qualification and units of competence are nationally recognized and provides you with a qualification that can be applied Australia wide
