What training providers need to know about training packages​

Information about training packages to help registered training organisations (RTOs) in the delivery of structured, accredited training.

Training packages

A training package is a set of nationally endorsed standards and qualifications used to recognise and assess the skills and knowledge people need to perform effectively in the workplace.

Training packages are a key resource for registered training organisations (RTOs) in the delivery of structured, accredited training. 

A training package states what competencies need to be achieved but does not prescribe how an individual should be trained. It is the responsibility of the RTO, through its trainers, to develop teaching strategies and assessment methods to meet the needs, abilities and circumstances of learners.

Training package standards

Training product development for Australian industry

The Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) approves training  packages for implementation. Visit the Australian Industry and Skills Committee website.

Skills Service Organisations (SSOs) support Industry Reference Committees (IRCs) in their work to develop and review training packages. The IRCs are made up of people with experience, skills and knowledge of their particular industry sector to ensure that training packages meet the needs of employers.
View the list of IRCs and Training Packages allocated to each SSO at the Skills Service Organisations website.
