Prior Learning Assessment

Earn college credits for what you already know!
Prior Learning Assessment is a method of assessing and recognizing learning that is equal tocollege level learning, but has been gained outside a traditional classroom (through workexperience, volunteering, outside study, etc.). If you can prove that the knowledge you have gainedmeets the outcomes of a Seneca course, then credit will be awarded.

How does the PLA process work?
Prior Learning is demonstrated through a 'challenge' process. The process measures learningthrough a variety of methods which may include tests, portfolio assessment, interviews,demonstrations, essays, and work samples. The method used will be determined in consultation with aProgram Coordinator.
For more information and to determine if you are eligible for PLA, please call the ProgramCoordinator.

The process may take from 6 to 8 weeks.

Note: Not all courses can be challenged. For more information go to PLA website or contact yourProgram Coordinator.

The hazards associated with shop areas require special safety considerations. The potential for personal injury is significant whether you work in a wood, metal, glass, vehicle repair, electrical, or other shop. Examples of hazards include: rotating parts, flying chips/particulate, cuts, pinch points and/or exposure to gases or chemicals. It is not possible to note all the potential risks involved with the various shops. However, it is possible to avoid many hazards by carefully planning your work prior to using any equipment or machinery. To prevent accidents, utilize your knowledge, training, and common sense. Know the hazards associated with your work and minimize or eliminate them prior to commencing work.

Before working in a shop area, be sure you are properly trained to perform the work to be done. This includes completing the Basic Shop Safety Training as well as any required training specific to the machinery/equipment you will be working on. Inspect your tools and equipment before using them. If a procedure is potentially hazardous to others in the area, alert them accordingly. Notify your supervisor if you notice any unsafe conditions such as: defective tools/equipment or machines that are not properly guarded. Be careful not to distract persons who are working in the shop area. Always remember that machinery/equipment can be dangerous when not used properly. Ensure you are following RIT’s Shop Safety guidelines that are posted in shop areas. These guidelines can also be found by clicking the Shop Safety Rules link on the right side of this page.

Machine/Equipment Guards

Moving machine parts must be safeguarded to protect operators from serious injury. Belts, gears, shafts, pulleys, fly wheels, blades, chains, chucks, and other moving parts must be guarded if there is a chance they could cause injury. The hazards associated with moving machinery can be deadly. See information about RIT’s Machine Guarding program via the link to the right.

Training Requirements


The RIT Environmental Health & Safety Department provides basic Shop Safety Training on-line.

Also note that everyone needs to take machine/equipment specific training. Instruction in the safe use and care of machines and equipment is essential in preventing injuries in shop areas.

Training should include:

  • How to safely operate machinery/equipment used in shops;
  • The purpose and proper use of machine safeguards;
  • Safety procedures: Buddy System, Lockout Tagout;
