The Gas IRC is responsible for national training package qualifications relevant to the supply of natural gas via transmission and distribution pipelines, and liquid petroleum gas (LPG) via cylinders, to a variety of domestic and manufacturing customers. It does not refer to the extraction of gas from its source, nor the installation or maintenance of gas appliances within domestic or manufacturing environments.
These qualifications are included in the UEG Gas 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 Gas IRC is supported by the Skills Service Organisation, Australian Industry Standards Limited (AIS). For more information visit AIS.
Further information about the role of IRCs and how they operate can be found in the IRC Operating Framework.
