Animal Care and Management Industry Reference Committee

On this page

IRC membership details are updated each quarter.

The Animal Care and Management IRC is responsible for national training package qualifications relevant to veterinary services, animal breeding services, pet and companion animal services, captive wildlife operations, animal technology, hunting and trapping. Animal care and management, especially animal welfare, has relevance to a number of sectors, including agriculture, racing, sport and recreation, medical research, local government and conservation. The new committee provides a central point for coordinated engagement across sectors.

These qualifications are included in the ACM Animal Care and Management Training Package.

The IRC will consult widely during any future training package development process providing opportunity for any interested parties to make a contribution. Technical Advisory Committees may also be established to inform future work, utilising a broad range of stakeholders with technical and specific industry knowledge.

The Animal Care and Management IRC is supported by the Skills Service Organisation, Skills Impact. For more information visit Skills Impact.

Further information about the role of IRCs and how they operate can be found in the IRC Operating Framework.
