IRC membership details are updated each quarter.

The Complementary Health IRC is responsible for national training package qualifications relevant to Ayurveda, Aromatherapy, Kinesiology, Massage and Remedial Massage Therapy, Shiatsu, Reflexology, and Traditional Chinese Medicine/Massage. These qualifications are included in the HLT 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.
