The APL scheme is of special interest for those who want to work towards achieving an SNU award and have gained a vast amount of knowledge and experience in demonstrations of speaking and demonstrating and/or attending or running workshops on these subjects. The first route towards achieving an SNU award in speaking and demonstrating or speaking is to register and complete the Platform Accreditation Scheme (PAS) criteria in (a) speaking or (b) speaking and demonstrating.

The waving of PAS criteria in (a) speaking or (b) speaking and demonstrating includes not having to (i) take 25 church services and have log books signed each time by the chairperson, (ii) attend and pay for 5 review sessions in each discipline and (iii) wait to complete these criteria and instead go straight for the Final Assessment in PAS (s)(d) or PAS(s). (Evidence of completion of SD1 course is required).
