Electricity Supply Generation Industry Reference Committee

On this page

The Electricity Supply Generation IRC is responsible for national training package qualifications relevant to the production of electricity, encompassing activities from the point of supply/acceptance of energy resources and consumables to the point of exit of electrical energy and by-products of the generation processes. The Electricity Generation industry is rapidly diversifying with the sector characterised by a sustained period of privatisation of many State owned energy corporations and enterprises.

These qualifications are included in the UEP Electricity Supply Industry – Generation Sector 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 Electricity Supply Generation IRC is supported by the Skills Service Organisation, Australian Industry Standards Ltd. For more information visit AIS.

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