The idea behind PLAR is that the learning that it takes place in different educational settings and is assessed through experience outside classrooms.

As such, he deemed the launch a milestone noting that will effect momentous change in the development of human capital across the country. Similar sentiments were expressed by C-TVET Chairman, Mr Floyd Scott. He said that PLAR will certainly revolutionize technical education and more so the national economy by creating opportunities for persons to be recognized and certified for their skills.
