Training packages are a key feature of Australia’s national vocational education and training (VET) system. 
Training package qualifications are occupational skills standards against which training delivery and assessment of competency can take place. They are developed through a process of national consultation with industry. 
Training packages are developed by Service Skills Organisations (formerly by Industry Skills Councils) to meet the training needs of industry or an industry sector. 
Training packages do not suggest how a learner should be trained, rather, they specify the skills and knowledge required to perform effectively in the workplace. 
Training packages are endorsed by the Australian Industry and Skills Committee before being published on the national VET register . 
Each training packages is made up of four endorsed components:
- Units of competency
- Assessment requirements
- Qualifications framework
- Credit arrangements.
