The Furnishing IRC is responsible for national training package qualifications relevant to furnishings, kitchens, cabinets, glass, windows and doors and furnishing design, flooring and picture framing.
These qualifications are included in the MSF Training Package.
The IRC will consult widely during any future training package development process, providing an 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 Furnishing IRC is supported by the Skills Service Organisation, IBSA Manufacturing. For more information visit IBSA Manufacturing
