Hello, I'm writing my RPL, I finished most of it but I don't know what to write for this part:
ICT PROBLEM SOLVING (PS)
There is a description here acs.org.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0011/5969/Key-Areas-of-Knowledge.pdf

Another thing:
Has anyone tried to buy RPL form from rpl-it.com? Is it a good idea?

Thank you

Hi,
Buying RPL from websites may be useful only to get an idea. I think you cannot directly use it, because your work experience and the details of the RPL should match. So buy one if you want to get an idea. Otherwise, just do it yourself and submit it. Everything will be good. Dont worry. Try to touch all the areas you have worked. Dont forget anything worth mentioning.

Look at it this way; how did you solve a business problem (Take a use case)? What was the algorithm you used in designing the solution? What was the outcome? Answering these questions, for example, can fill up the section on ICT problem solving!

Hi!
I was in the same situation late summer 2015, desperetly looking for any kind of RPL just to get an idea on how to structure mine. It took a while but after a while I wrote more than 50 pages always baring in mind, that I wanted to explain ACS what I (exactly) did and how I learned the ICT business analyst role "on-the-job".
I don't want to sound to cruel but even if I could provide with my RPL, I wouldn't send it to you. Your RPL is a very personal description on how you finally ended up to be an ICT business analyst - but if you have any questions regarding the structure of your RPL, I'll be glad to help!

Wish you all the best!

Hi all, just need a word of advice, trying to fill in the 'ICT PROBLEM SOLVING (PS)' section, how many words should I at least aim for? I am trying to fit the 3 notes from information they provide, 'Modelling Tools, Modelling method, Model evaluation and verification'. but I ended up with 280 words. Im trying to reflect every section to my role but I don't want to over feed each section, so is there a limit number of words I should aim for? Many thanks. Mike.

Hi Mike!

I just checked my RPL on how much I wrote in that section and counted 280 words. Roughly half a page in the overall document. Not much actually, compared to the next section.
I hope I can ease your concerns by saying, that for section PK I wrote 22 pages, 15142 words to be exact. The overall size of my RPL exceeded 50 pages at the end.
It took ACS about 5 working days to assess my skills.
Judging by the size of my RPL I had expected that it would take a bit longer - just to read it :)

Good luck with assessment!

Cheers,
TheJester_MH

Hello,
Many thanks for your reply, put a shock to the 22 pages for the PK section!
Can I ask... did you you comment under each section for PK.. example... PK1 Ethics (filled in this section), PK2 Professionalism (Filled in this section) all the way to PK6. Or did you just free write everything.

Alongside this, did you add any evidence (emails, screenshots, feedback references from people).

Many thanks again and thanks for the 50 page heartache comment! Gonna need a whole weekend for this!
Cheers,
Mike.

Hey Mike,

The section PROFESSIONAL KNOWLEDGE (PK) is structured with the following bullet points:
- Ethics
- Professionalism
- Teamwork Concepts and Issues
- Interpersonal Communication
- Societal Issues/Legal Issues/Privacy
- History and Status of Discipline.
As far as I really had made some experience in the bullet point, I mentioned it. Actually in the same order, e.g.:
I have required and applied this knowledge in the following areas:
- Ethics:
o "In all my projects both as an ICT business analyst ...etc."
o next experience related to ethics
o and so on...
- Professionalism
o experience related to professionalism, etc.

Well I understood the overall reason for an RPL is to explain, how I managed to learn the job as an Business Analyst. I therefore explained situations and lessons I learned during the different projects and roles I had.
To backup my statement, by both adding employment references and statutory declaration from co-workers both company internal and from an external consultancy from all my skilled relevant jobs.

My first company I worked for doesn't even exist any more so I had to contact my former boss and asked for a statutory declaration. Thank goodness he helped out and so I was able to gather evidence of skills starting way back in Feb. 2001 to now.
It was a bit tricky to prove my current job as I didn't want to ask my current employer for any employment references. For that I again asked a co-worker to provide the evidence. Together with a simple letter from my current employer stating that I am still working for the company and with two actual pay slips, I managed to prove my current situation too.
The only 'problem' is that you cannot prove anything in the future. You can only provide evidence for any job in the past. So if you don't have enough experience in the past, you might have to wait until you really have the years full.

Cheers,
TheJester_mh

Hi and thanks again.
That is quite detailed response and thanks for the feedback. I'm about to process my RPL by next week (without a rush), will you be be happy if I can contact you directly for some advice? I think I have full grip of this so far, but if I can approach you directly for some advice, it would be highly appreciated. You don't have to agree of course :)
