The Corrections IRC is responsible for national training package qualifications relevant to Justice Services, Correctional Practices, Administration and Management.
These qualifications are included in the CSC Corrections 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 Corrections IRC is supported by the Skills Service Organisation, Australian Industry Standards Ltd. For more information visit AIS.
