A training package is a set of nationally endorsed training standards, qualifications and guidelines in Australia.
A training package is used to recognise and assess the skills and knowledge people need to perform effectively in the workplace. Training packages are developed by Service Skills Organisations or by enterprises to meet the training needs of an industry or group of industries. Training packages prescribe outcomes required by the workplace, not training or education.
A training package contains three compulsory endorsed components:
- Competency standards
- Qualifications framework
- Assessment guidelines
