Sport and Recreation Industry Reference Committee

The Sport and Recreation IRC is responsible for national training package qualifications relevant to job roles in aquatic and community recreation, fitness, outdoor adventure, outdoor recreation and sport.

These qualifications are included in the SIS and SIS10 Sport, Fitness and Recreation 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 Sport and Recreation IRC is supported by the Skills Service Organisation, SkillsIQ. For more information visit SkillsIQ.

Further information about the role of IRCs and how they operate can be found in the IRC Operating Framework.
