So how long does RPL take? Well, not long at all.
Most candidates take between 5 and 10 hours to put their portfolio together.
Remember? We're not talking about coursework here. If you sign up for a college, you're talking about a one-year full-time equivalent, 500+ hours. RPL is 5-10 hours.
So less than 2% of the time, not to mention that studying at college will cost you about $5,000, and what we're talking about is around $1,500.
So RPL, is it going to take you a lot of time? No, it's not.
Remember, the evidence you're supplying is what you do every day. Meetings, operational plans, reports, performance reviews dealing with difficulties, email strings where you're solving problems, all things that you're regularly doing in the workplace as a competent leader and manager.
So we're talking about putting together your portfolio of evidence from things you're doing daily.
So, in a nutshell, RPL does not take long to do it all when you compare it to coursework or study.
