IRC membership details are updated each quarter.
The Public Safety IRC is responsible for the national training package qualifications relevant to police, defence, firefighting, fire investigation, emergency services (including operations, response and leadership), disaster recovery, biosecurity, aquatic search and rescue and community safety.
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 Public Safety IRC is supported by the Skills Service Organisation, Australian Industry Standards Limited (AIS). For more information visit AIS.
Further information about the role of IRCs and how they operate can be found in the IRC Operating Framework.
