Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

FAS have now introduced a scheme for plant operators who have experience in driving the plant items on the FAS CSCS list but who are not holders of a current CSCS card. The new process is designed to assist experienced operators who may have the appropriate skills to safely operate the plant but not the formal training*

These candidates can now apply to have their experience/certification recognised in order to take part in a one day recognition of prior learning assessment.


*Note: For more information to whether your application could be accepted please contact David on 057-8646619.
