About Us

Australian Industry Standards (AIS) is a government-funded not-for-profit organisation that develops skills standards across a range of Australian industries.

Australian Industry Standards Ltd (AIS) was established in early 2016 as an independent, government-funded Skills Service Organisation. It is a major component of the Australian Government’s reform of vocational education and training across Australian industry sectors.

As an organisation, we have a deep-seated passion for skills development and its power to set our industries apart from their international competitors and to transform the lives of individuals.

Our standards are high.  Always. We hire the best minds, who bring with them deep technical skills, proven expertise in workforce development, and who have an inbuilt commitment to servicing industry.  Our reputation is one of delivering high-quality, future-focused qualifications through transparent and open engagement.

Our proven capability and intense focus on service is why we’re one of only a handful of organisations selected by government to do the job of a Skills Service Organisation.  We work under the direction of 11 Industry Reference Committees that represent the following sectors: aviation, transport and logistics, maritime, energy, water and utilities, public safety, police, fire, defence and corrections.

Together, these industries keep Australia productive, powered and secure.  The industry challenge is to be the best they can possibly be.  Ours is to ensure their workforce is skilled to world-class standards.

AIS supports these important industry sectors by using our own world-class, in-house capability and capacity in industry engagement, quality assurance, and project management to produce training packages and other support services.

AIS takes over this important activity from its predecessor, the Transport and Logistics Industry Skills Council (TLISC), which operated for more than 20 years engaging with industry, identifying relevant workplace standards and developing Training Packages.

At Australian Industry Standards, our focus is on helping industry to develop world-class qualifications for their workforce.

What we do

Australian Industry Standards supports industry growth and productivity through our modern innovative approach to establishing skills standards.

We provide high-quality, professional secretariat services to help our allocated Industry Reference Committees develop the skills that industry needs.

We partner with industry to shape the workforce of the future.
