SkillsDMC is the Industry and Australian Government recognised advisory body providing consultancy services and advocacy to Industry and governments on the skills and workforce development needs of the Resources and Infrastructure Industry. In partnership with the Commonwealth Government, we engage directly with Industry leadership, which allows us to meet our responsibility for defining Industry skill specifications, providing workforce planning and development solutions, as well as facilitating access to skills investment programs.
Under an arrangement with the Commonwealth Government, SkillsDMC operates the National Industry Skills Council for the Australian Resources and Infrastructure Industry, recognised by Industry and governments, and is responsible for facilitating the skilling needs of Industry stakeholders. We work closely with the Resources and Infrastructure Industry, governments, employer and employee bodies and communities, as well as training organisations and Industry and training regulators to strive for quality, Industry-led vocational education and training within the National Training System. Established in 2003, SkillsDMC has successfully worked with clients from the public and private sectors in the design and implementation of skilling standards applied across the Resources and Infrastructure Industry.
A particular strength is the development of the Australian Resources and Infrastructure Industry Training Package (skills competency recognition framework) which is referenced world-wide as an industry standard. This standard is adopted by Industry and governments to support workforce development and skilling strategies. SkillsDMC has proven capability in shaping and delivering workforce development solutions to address skills needs at an enterprise and regional level.
Underpinning the delivery of solutions, SkillsDMC conducts research and workforce analysis, identifies skills gaps aligned to business imperatives, defines training needs analysis at an enterprise and regional level and develops leading learning and assessment materials. In delivering a broader provision of services to Industry, SkillsDMC drives public policy activities on behalf of Industry to influence changes to funding and quality skilling outcomes relevant to the workforce through quality training supported by public and private sector delivery systems.
Through comprehensive industry consultation, SkillsDMC includes as its stakeholders the following Industry Sectors:
- Coal Mining
- Metalliferous Mining
- Civil Infrastructure
- Quarrying (Extractive)
- Drilling (including Oil and Gas)
We are leaders in the development and implementation of skills competency standards linked to occupational outcomes. In support of these standards, we have a range of services and methodologies designed to assist our clients to implement these standards to meet business and operational needs.
