AIS Stakeholder Survey


Australian Industry Standards (AIS) is a government-funded, not-for-profit organisation working with industry leadership to ensure Training Packages are contemporary, future-focused and aligned with industry needs.

AIS works under the leadership of 11 Industry Reference Committees (IRCs) representing the aviation, transport and logistics, maritime, energy, water and utilities, public safety, police, fire, defence and corrections sectors.


IRCs drive priorities for the review and development of Training Packages. They are made up of people with experience, skills and knowledge of their particular industry sector.

It is their job to ensure Training Packages address the needs of employers, employees, training organisations and students.

AIS works under the direction of 11 Industry Reference Committees. Please hover over the IRC for more information:
