Brush up or Prior Learning Assessment Policy

Students with certification or training from another Province or country will undergo a prior learning assessment prior to starting training. It is at this time that the length and type of technical and theory training required is established and agreed to by both the student and the college. The criteria used for the PLA is documented hours.

The college will grant hour credit based on the students provided documentation. (The college does not necessarily grant the transfer student equal value for hours obtained in either another training institution or the apprenticeship program.) The student will provide transfer documents and undergo a practical evaluation using the current PLA Form. The student will receive a copy of the PLA form.

The responsibility rests completely with the college to determine the students training term at RSH. The student will be made aware of this term before starting training or signing the enrollment contract.

The college makes every effort to minimize the training term but the ultimate responsibility of the college is to provide the graduate with the necessary skill level, upon graduation, to pass the examination administered by the BC Beauty’s Board of Examiners and to enable the student to successfully assimilate into the workforce.
