What is a training package?

Training packages are developed to meet the training needs of an industry, or a group of industries. Skills Service Organisations, such as PwC’s Skills for Australia, work with industry to identify skills and knowledge needs in the workforce, and translate these into learning requirements in training products.

Training packages are developed on behalf of our eight allocated Industry Reference Committees (IRCs) and are endorsed by the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) in accordance with ASQA’s Standards for Training Packages.

They are made up of three types of training products:

  • Units of competency (UoCs): consist of skills and knowledge requirements aimed at meeting an identified learning outcome, to be applied in the workplace.
  • Qualifications: specified groups of units of competency which make up formal certifications, ranging from Certificate I to Graduate Diploma levels, aligned to the Australian Qualifications Framework.
  • Skill sets: specified, small groups of units of competency which form recognised skills or knowledge areas required by industry, regulation or licensing purposes.

How do I use training packages?

Registered training organisations (RTOs) or entities partnered with RTOs, can deliver training products provided they are on their scope of registration.

An RTO’s scope is regulated by ASQA, and RTOs must comply with ASQA’s Standards in delivering training products.

Companion volumes are available for each training package, with information on qualification mapping, packaging rules and credit equivalencies.

You can also get in touch with us for guidance in interpreting our training packages and mapping rules, or if you have any feedback on our training products.

Training packages and links to their companion volumes are available here.
