AISC approves training package review

According to a recent report by ASIAL, the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) has approved the case for change for the Security Operations training package Cert II and III.

The next phase will start when the Skills Service Organisation (which in the case of security is Artibus Innovation) receives the work activity order from AISC, which will enable them to proceed with finalising the Technical Advisory Committee (TAG) and commence the project. ASIAL will take a lead position in working with all stakeholders in the development of the new training package for Security Operations in Australia.

The Federal Government’s new approach gives industry a leading role in the national Vocational Education and Training (VET) system and enables industry to prioritise the development and review of training packages based on industry demand for skills, technology and regulatory changes.

The AISC will draw on advice from the new Industry Reference Committees (IRCs) which are made up of people with experience, skills and knowledge of their particular industry sector. Their advice will ensure training packages better meet the needs of employers and the modern economy. IRCs are supported by the new Skills Service Organisations (SSOs). SSOs are independent, professional service organisations who under the direction of relevant IRCs, they will undertake work commissioned by the AISC on the review and development of training products.

This new model for developing and maintaining training packages, places industry at the centre of the process.
