Prior Learning Assessment & Recognition (PLAR) is a process that identifies, verifies and recognizes one’s learning (knowledge and skills) in relation to specific criteria. PLAR is criterion-referenced and as such a candidate’s knowledge and skills must be identified and measured against an established pre-set standard. PEAK’s PLAR is based on a belief/value system that supports opportunities for individuals to have all relevant learning recognized and counted towards a specific qualification, in this case NUEC 1 to 3 and NUOFA 1 & 3. Learning and experience are not the same. Experience is a way of learning and people learn through experience. It is possible to have ten years of work experience but not have the equivalent amount of learning.
If you are interested in making application to obtain NUEC (levels 1 to 3) &/or NUOFA (levels 1 and 3) certification please complete this application fully and accurately. Please note that due to administrative constraints incomplete or illegible applications will not be processed. Please fill out the form below as completely as possible, alternatively send or fax a scanned copy of the PDF version of the PLAR application (as well as any and all relevant certificates) to 604-648-8120 or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
