The Aerospace IRC is responsible for national training package qualifications relevant to aircraft and aircraft parts manufacturing, civilian aircraft repair and maintenance and military aircraft repair and maintenance.
These qualifications are in the MEA Aeroskills 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 Aerospace IRC is supported by the Skills Service Organisation IBSA Manufacturing. For more information visit IBSA Manufacturing.
Further information about the role of IRCs and how they operate can be found in the IRC Operating Framework.
