There are several processes that allow candidates for membership to have their prior academic qualifications and current skills and experience recognised as part of the UKPB membership requirements.

Conventional Recognition System:

Conventional recognition is a process that recognises qualifications or statements of attainment issued by accredited awarding body in their country.
To recognise your prior academic qualifications, members need to provide certified copies of their qualifications, statement of attainment or statement of results to the institute.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL):

Recognition of prior learning is a process that recognises an applicant’s current skills and experience regardless of where and when the learning occurred. Applications for RPL are based on whole competencies.
Applicants can base their application on any combination of formal or informal training and education, work experience or general life experience.
Applicants will need to contact the UKPB for information on the RPL process. To apply for recognition of prior learning applicants will need to complete the RPL form and provide supporting evidence.

Evidence may include:

  - Interview/professional conversation.
  - Observation and questioning including workplace visits.
  - Portfolio of work, which may include completed assessment items from previous study.
  - Supplementary assessment tasks or challenge test (oral, written or practical).
  - Assessment where no training is involved.
  - Trade test.
  - Authentication of evidence by supervisor or employer.
