Training Package Products Update

SkillsIQ is currently awaiting final endorsement from Skills Ministers for the Individual Support Training Package Products approved by the AISC at its October 2021 meeting.

As per the AISC communique, the AISC approved the revised training products for the CHC Community Services Training Package Individual Support, Ageing and Disability Support, on the proviso that the training products are referred to Skills Senior Officials Network (SSON) as part of the endorsement process to urgently provide advice on:

  • Common outstanding issues relating to training package content and structure, as raised with jurisdictions by their industry stakeholders and how these issues will be managed to achieve resolution and acceptance of the Training Package
  • Steps that can be taken to support RTO uptake and delivery of the updated training products.
  • This project included the Certificate III in Individual Support, Certificate IV in Ageing Support and Certificate IV in Disability Support and a number of associated Units of Competency and Skill Sets. We are currently unable to publish these Training Package Products on training.gov.au until such time that Skills Ministers’ approval is received.

    As there are a number of subsequent projects that have incorporated Units of Competency from the Individual Support Training Package project, we are therefore unable to publish subsequent Training Package Products until such time as Individual Support Training Package Products are published on training.gov.au. These projects include Allied Health and Massage Therapy.

    Further to this, as Training Package Products must be uploaded to training.gov.au according to the versions that are endorsed by the Skills Ministers, until CHC Community Services Training Package Version 7.0 containing the Individual Support Training Package Products is uploaded to training.gov.au, we cannot publish subsequent versions of this Training Package.

    The impact is similar for the HLT Health Training Package, in that until we publish the HLT Health Training Package Version 8.0 containing Allied Health Training Package Products (which contain units from the Individual Support project), we also cannot publish subsequent versions which include the Hospital Pharmacy, Health Administration, Massage Therapy, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Worker Training Package Products and so on.

    We will advise stakeholders as soon as CHC Community Services Training Package Version 7.0 containing the Individual Support Training Package Products is published. The remaining subsequent Training Package Products will be published in succession thereafter.
