For over 20 years, CIT has committed resources to the support of students undertaking the RPL pathway. CIT's RPL policy is supported by rigorous quality assurance mechanisms and on-going staff development. RPL policy extends to all courses at all levels and in all disciplines. In CIT RPL can be used to gain entry or advanced entry to a programme, gain exemptions from elements of a programme or gain a full award on the framework. If the situation arises where students do not meet the standard academic entry requirements but have appropriate equivalent learning they will be supported in preparing a case for consideration for entry to a programme which will be academically assessed.

Long Description

The Certificate in Building Information Modelling (BIM) Technologies is a three module, 15 credit, part-time programme.
