Ambulance and Paramedic Industry Review Committee

The Ambulance and Paramedic IRC is responsible for national training package qualifications relevant to First-aid services, On-site pre-hospital care, Intensive paramedic care services, and the Domestic and international retrieval of patients. These qualifications are included in the HLT 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 Ambulance and Paramedic IRC is supported by the Skills Service Organisation, SkillsIQ. For more information visit SkillsIQ.

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