Sienna – what did she say?

The trainers and the staff working at the academy are very nice, and most of time they reply within 3 days or so.

What I found very disappointing is:

  1. Every time I had to submit an assessment, the observer had to sign and write some feedback about me… 18 times is way too much, it was very uncomfortable..
  2. Some assessments are too long to complete, and quite difficult … But I have to say that every time I had a problem, they called me to try to help me…

… Overall, my experience was good, however, I wouldn’t repeat with them but now that I finished I´m happy with the result. Read more…

Wendy – what did she say?

When it came to the training bit, I knew I had years of experience and didn’t find it difficult at all. But when it came to the assessments piece – I was a wreck . Luckily I reached out to my trainer Emma, who guided me and supported me in the right manner. She could see I was getting stressed and motivated me to help calm my nerves. It’s a very practical training session. The staff is always ready to help you. It requires focus and time. Overall I had a wonderful experience with Fortress. I’ve been recommending it to all my trainer friends in Dubai.

Glenn – what did he say?

I completed by Cert IV TAE in 7 weeks with Fortress and couldn’t have done it without the amazing support of Emma. When I had questions she was always there to help out and provide guidance. She marked by assignments very quickly and provided great feedback to me also. The personal touch that Fortress provided is comforting for a remote learner. I researched a lot of other providers who didn’t rate well but Fortress rated very well i’m happy to provide another glowing reference. Thanks team for all your support!

Individualised RPL process for the Cert IV TAE and Dip VET


walking up stairs

Every now and then, a graduating student writes a Review that we believe really captures what we try to do, in this case about RPL for the Cert IV TAE and Dip VET. Instead of them ending up hidden among the others, we will share them with you, and try to explain why we think they are so appropriate.

What did they say?

Owen: Provided one of the most suitable RPL programs I have seen. It addressed broader learning and skills through detailed authentification without being a tick and flick.  Where further training was required all resources provided a high level of information.

Cecile: I felt as though throughout my RPL the process was smooth and easy. Bryan was very patient with me and my OCD. Thank you for getting all my results back to me so quickly as well, it was great to get that feedback almost immediately.

Jason: As a VET professional, I am always concerned with integrity, as there are many RTOs and Assessors out there that give us all a bad name through the use of “tick and flick”. Fortress Learning is not like that at all, they assess and grant competency the right way every time, giving every learner the opportunity to show their underpinning knowledge in all forms of assessment.

Coleen Rivas – what did she say?

Having worked in the VET sector for many years, these guys gave me a great demonstration of how things should be done. The LMS is easy to use, feedback and results are provided within 24 hours and support is available whenever required. Benchmark RTO. For those doing TAE qualifications, the learning includes a fantastic example of how an RTO should operate. 5 Star Rating well deserved.

Geraldine – what did she say?

Fortress Learning has been so supportive throughout all my studies with them. I have now done two courses and have never had cause to worry about anything. The regular contact to make sure I’m ok and to see if I need any assistance with anything also work as a motivational tool to keep me going. They will help your much or as little as you want. I can totally recommend and would not hesitate to do any further studies with them.

For an affordable training option, Fortress have put together a good package. The materials are good and help to complete the assessments. I had some administrative issues but Fortress were helpful in solving them and took responsibility for their part. They were very consistent in offering assistance throughout the course. The online system is well set up, and suits fitting it into your own schedule if you are self motivated.

Ian: What did he say?

Professional Company with empathic staff.

Very comprehensive web based RPL assessment, which provided a diversity of evidentiary options suiting my position and experience. At all times I was confident that appropriate standards were being maintained in respect to the Units of study. Having now graduated, I am confident of carrying the enhanced learning back into the workplace.

Processing of all submitted work was excellent in timeline (1-2 days) and any further requirements were always clearly explained.

Excellent Tutor/Assessor relationship throughout the Course, made for ‘easy’ discussion environment; always encouraged and recognised for the work undertaken.

No hesitation in recommending Fortress Learning for those wishing to reach ‘the standard’ required for professional application.

Jeuss Polandaya: What did he say?

Q. How painful was the RPL process?

RPL is a tedious process in providing all the necessary evidence but with the support of Fortress trainers, the work becomes manageable.

Q. What didn’t work for you?

Minor setback on some submissions but easily resolved due to the diligence of the trainers/assessors in giving feedback in what to improve in my submissions.

Q. What advice would you give to others considering studying this course in this way?

Be prepared to provide all necessary evidence to demonstrate your competency and don’t look for an evidence that you don’t have. Move on, do the work, set a goal and achieve it!

Q. Is there anything else you’d like to include?

Special thanks to Mr. Bryan West with his guidance and great feedback, I have completed the course in much earlier time.
