July 2019: Update

IBSA Manufacturing is pleased to advise that the Welding Technician Project has commenced. Industry experts are currently being approached to form a Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) and provide guidance in the development of training package components in the near future.

The review of the qualifications and unit content will be considered by the TAC to ensure alignment with industry skills needs, current work practices and technology. This review will also identify any duplication and obsolete units which may be considered for removal.

First draft training package components are scheduled for public consultation by in the near future.

IBSA Manufacturing will provide opportunities for industry engagement and feedback via a series of National industry forums, webinars, and via the website.

This project covers three key skill areas important to the manufacturing and engineering industries. The relevant training package components are being reviewed based on:

  • key government initiatives
  • shifting technology trends
  • changing work and career values.
  • 4 qualifications
  • 234 existing units of competency
  • 4 or 5 new qualifications.

*Further components may be affected by unit code and title changes.

Training package development projects are overseen by the relevant Industry Reference Committee (IRC) and supported by a project Technical Advisory Committee (TAC). They guide the project and provide industry expertise for developing the components. All projects are then referred to the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) for approval.
