Automotive Vehicle Body Repair Industry Reference Committee

The Automotive Vehicle Body Repair IRC is responsible for national training package qualifications relevant to servicing, repairing and modifying vehicles within the automotive vehicle body sector.

These qualifications are included in the AUR – Automotive Retail, Service and Repair Training Package.

The IRC will consult widely during any future training package development process, providing opportunity for 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 Automotive Vehicle Body Repair IRC is supported by the Skills Service Organisation PricewaterhouseCoopers Skills for Australia. For more information, visit Skills for Australia.
