Military RPL

Match your military training, knowledge and skills to Nationally Recognised Qualifications!


Working in our Australian Defence Force, or Military from around the world is a rewarding and challenging career that develops a skill base in its officer that is unique but transferable. Those members at initial enlistment or toward the end of their careers have developed skills in security, risk management, work health and safety, front line management, community service, emergency management, training, first response and much more.

Our CLET RPL team can convert these skills into Nationally Recognised Qualifications and our assessment process is obligation free.

The CLET Military RPL team is lead by Dr Kate Martin who is Australia's leading expert in assessing our current and former military personnel's workplace experience, knowledge, skills, from both on and off the job!

Kate recently completed 9 years of research with her Thesis: Moving Forward - employment post-service for Australian uniformed professionals in the Defence Force, Police, and Emergency Services.

Further, Kate regularly consults with current and former members of the ADF and holds a Bachelor of Psychological Science, Master of Disaster and Emergency Response, Master of International Security Studies and a Master of Policing, Intelligence and Counter-Terrorism plus many others. These have all been studied by Kate for our military, police and emergency services to ensure no stone is left unturned when their RPL assessment is conducted, and they receive all the recognition that they deserve.

In addition, Kate has been awarded an Australia Day Medal, is currently an advisor to the Department of Veteran Affairs (DVA) Council for Women and Families United for the Defence Service (the Council), the Australian & New Zealand Mental Health Association (ANZMHA) co-chair of the Program Advisory Committee for the 2020/21 Frontline Mental Health Conferences and is the appointed Chair of the Queensland Chapter, Committee Member and a Founding Member of the Red Cross Society of Women Leaders.

Dr Kate Martin 'WORKS 7 DAYS A WEEK' with Australia's defence personnel to ensure their obligation-free RPL assessment report is delivered on time, comprehensive and covers recognition of ALL their experience. With Kate's leadership, CLET's RPL team is dedicated to and holds the highest level of expertise to assess and acknowledge the skills of current and former military and ensure that access is given to a fair and valid assessment process for the recognition of these skills.

All ADF personnel can trust the CLET Military RPL team to understand and interpret their experience and assess it against an extensive range of qualifications. We encourage all ADF personnel to take this opportunity to have their knowledge and skills assessed against civilian qualifications that are recognised across all employment sectors and join a highly-skilled group of ADF who hold a one or more of CLET's extensive list of Nationally Recognised Qualification/s, that have been carefully selected by Kate to best match their defence training, transferrable knowledge, skills and experience. 

When you APPLY ONLINE, you may request an overall assessment, drag and drop your evidence into your SECURE online application page and the CLET RPL team will do the rest for you.
