The Complementary Health IRC is responsible for national training package qualifications relevant to Ayurveda, Aromatherapy, Kinesiology, Massage and Remedial Massage Therapy, Shiatsu, Reflexology, and Traditional Chinese Medicine/Massage. 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.
