Training Packages Update

posted in: News | 0

Skills Impact is responsible for the training packages listed below and we are managing a process by which these training packages will be released in the new standards format. Listed below are details of the stage each training package is at, as determined by the endorsement processes of the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC).

FWP Forest and Wood Products and PPM Pulp and Paper Manufacturing training packages are now available for implementation on training.gov.au. The remainder are undergoing a review process to ensure industry stakeholders are satisfied that the converted units satisfy the requirements of the job role, and that they fully comply with the 2012 Standards for Training Packages.
