*RPL cannot be provided for modules which contain ASIC competencies for both Tier 1 and Tier 2 compliance.

^To establish whether your AQF qualification is similar to an ANZIIF course/qualification, you can check the competency standards listed on your official Statement of Attainment issued by your RTO and compare against the competencies covered by ANZIIF modules.

Some ANZIIF modules confer ASIC RG 146 compliance competencies at the relevant level. RPL for these modules can only be granted if the AQF course/module that you have completed fulfills relevant compliance requirements.
