IBSA develops digital standards

Innovation and Business Skills Australia (IBSA) and the Electrotechnology, Printing, Information and Communication Industry Training Board (EPICITB) have unveiled a series of “competency standards and qualifications” for the digital printing industry.

The standards were developed by the training body in consultation with a series of industry organisations including Printing Industries, the Australian Manufacturing Workers Union (AMWU), and the Australian Industry Group.

“The printing industry workforce throughout Australia was heavily involved in the consultations and a series of workshops across the country provided the opportunity for the coal-face to provide input on the nature and extent of formal training required by industry now, and into the future,” IBSA said.

IBSA, which describes itself as the “official voice on vocational education and training” for the printing and graphic arts industry, said it has enhanced existing standards by incorporating environmental sustainability and competitive manufacturing competencies.

The organisation said it will now hold information sessions for the industry and workshops for registered training organisations, with dates to be confirmed in the coming weeks.

The standards have been endorsed by the National Training Information Service, and are available for review on the NTIS website.
