What is a Training Package?
Training Packages specify the skills and knowledge required to perform effectively in the workforce. They do not prescribe how an individual should be trained. Trainers and supervisors develop learning strategies- the 'how' - to support an individual learners' needs, abilities and circumstances. The development and endorsement process of Training Packages ensures the specifications are development to an agreed quality standard and are highly responsive to industry’s existing and future demand for new skills.
What is SkillsDMC's role?
Through our unique position and industry support, SkillsDMC is well placed to consult with industry stakeholders, governments, state agencies and other organisations to produce the three endorsed components of the training package (units of competency, assessment guidelines and qualifications).
To ensure the Training Package continues to reflect the needs of industry, SkillsDMC maintains an on-line Issues Register as part of our industry engagement strategy, all suggestions should be directed towards the latest training package (RII09 Resources and Infrastructure Industry Training Package) as all previously endorsed Training Packages have been superseded by the RII09 Training Package.
SkillsDMC does not provide training for any qualifications within the RII09 Training Package. To access provider information, go to Training.gov.au
