“Recognition of prior learning can be applied to meet requirements of education and training programs; occupation and/or professional certification; labour market entry; and/or organizational and human resource capacity building.”
—Malcolm Day and Paul Zakos, Developing Benchmarks for Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition – Practitioner Perspectives, Guidelines for the Canadian PLAR Practitioner (2000)
Thank you for visiting RFL’s online resource centre for PLAR Practitioners!
These web pages have been written by PLAR practitioners for PLAR practitioners and for those interested in learning more about being a PLAR practitioner.
Across Canada, there are people applying PLAR knowledge and skills in human resources, in community agencies, in professional associations and regulatory bodies and in academic settings. Veterans and newcomers in the practice of PLAR can learn from each other. RFL welcomes all to share their learning from experience and engage in a dialogue to improve the practice of PLAR in their organizations and institutions.
