A training package is a set of nationally endorsed standards and qualifications for recognising and assessing people's skills in a specific industry, industry sector or enterprise.
Despite the name, a training package does not describe how people should be trained, nor does it refer to a package of training or qualification that can be delivered or attained. Rather, training packages provide the nationally endorsed industry standards against which training can be developed and flexibly delivered to meet particular local, individual, industry and enterprise requirements.
Training packages complete a quality assurance process and are then endorsed by the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC). The training packages are reviewed regularly to ensure they continue to meet the needs of industry, students and the community.
