Case for Change
The objective of the Printing industry operations and print preparation project is to review and update training package components related to skills in the areas listed below.
This project will update ICP qualifications currently in the training package, and is based on two approved Cases for Change for the Printing and Graphic Arts Training Package:
- Industry knowledge and employability skills
- Design, marketing and other pre-press technical units of competency
The AISC endorsed these projects in June 2018.

Note: The Case for Change for Industry knowledge and employability skills is contained within the Industry Skills Forecast and Proposed Schedule of Work 2018
PwC’s Skills for Australia is currently conducting industry consultations for this project on behalf of the Printing and Graphic Arts Industry Reference Committee.
Consultation will focus on determining what changes are required to update to the ICP Training Package following the consolidation of qualifications in 2015.
This will include:
- identifying improvements to structure and packaging rules for ICP qualifications to provide greater clarity about the skills they provide and how they relate to jobs in printing operations and print preparation.
- updating existing units of competency to include new technology used by the industry and remove units which have been identified by industry as being out of date or duplicative.
We will also explore the need for skill sets in the following specialist areas: flexographic printing, lithographic printing, wide format digital print, sheet-fed digital print, and ePublishing.
