Case for Change
The objective of this project is to ensure that Australia’s Vocational Education and Training (VET) system is adequately preparing learners in 3D printing, and to ensure that this learning is applicable across other industries where appropriate.
Feedback across a range of industries has highlighted that the current 3D printing Units of Competency require updating so that they can be used outside of the ICP training package.
PwC’s Skills for Australia submitted the Case for Change for this project to the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) in September 2017.

On behalf of the Printing and Graphic Arts Industry Reference Committee (IRC), PwC’s Skills for Australia carried out industry consultations for this project from January – May 2018.
Thank you to those who provided their valuable input.
Following the Printing and Graphic Arts IRC’s approval of the key recommendations we have developed draft training products to address the skills gaps identified in 3D printing.
We are now accepting feedback on the draft training products prior to developing a Case for Endorsement for changes to the ICT Training Package.
Consultation details for the draft training products can be found under the ‘Training Product Development’ tab above.

Training Product Development
Following the Printing and Graphic Arts IRC’s approval of the key recommendations, we developed draft training products to address the skills gaps identified in 3D printing.
The draft training products include:
Public consultation on these draft training products has now closed. Thank you to those who provided their valuable input.
The next step is to develop a Case for Endorsement for changes to the Printing and Graphic Arts (ICP) Training Package, which is to be provided to the ICP Industry Reference Committee (IRC) for approval and submitted to the AISC in July 2018.

The Case for Endorsement for to investigate the broader industry needs of 3D printing and review the 3D printing units and skill set was approved by the AISC in October 2018.
Resulting changes to the Training Package can be viewed in the Case for Endorsement document below.
These changes will be reflected on the Training.gov.au website in due course.
