Subject matter experts needed for Gas Training Package

With the Gas Supply Industry Skills project having commenced, the Gas Industry Reference Committee is forming a Technical Advisory Committee. The committee is now seeking expert input.

“Your industry expertise and insight is welcome to help review and develop five qualifications and 69 Units of Competency in the Gas Supply Training Package,” says Australian Industry Standards.

“With the introduction of new technologies and work practices, job roles are adapting to new work functions, allowing cross-skilling between roles, and increasing workforce mobility. The traditional pipeline technician or operation roles are now blending with gas-processing or storage roles, which will need to be reflected in the qualifications. Traditional operation and supervisory roles also require added skills around the use of automation and digital technology.”

The project aims to update the relevant occupational skills standards to align with current industry practice, the integration of new technology and the introduction of hydrogen to existing gas networks.
