Extractive Industry Reference Committee

On this page

The Extractive IRC is responsible for national training package qualifications relevant to extractive industries (quarrying). Quarrying activity is geographically spread across the country and the most common quarry products in Australia are sand, gravel, sandstone and limestone.

These qualifications are included in the RII - Resources and Infrastructure 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 Extractive IRC is supported by the Skills Service Organisation, PwC's Skills for Australia. For more information visit PwC's Skills for Australia.

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