The Direct Client Care and Support IRC is responsible for national training package qualifications relevant to Disability, Mental health, Alcohol and other drugs, Leisure and health, Allied health assistance, and Health services assistance.
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 Direct Client Care and Support IRC is supported by the Skills Service Organisation, SkillsIQ. For more information visit SkillsIQ.
