IRC membership details are updated each quarter.

The Racing IRC is responsible for national training package qualifications relevant to the racing industry. These qualifications are included in the Racing 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 Racing IRC is supported by the Skills Service Organisation, Skills Impact. For more information visit Skills Impact.
