The Resources Industry Training Council (RITC) is a joint venture between The Chamber of Minerals and Energy of WA (CMEWA) and The Australian Petroleum Production and Exploration Association (APPEA).  The primary purpose of the RITC is to engage with the industry sectors it represents and gather intelligence on industry developments, workforce needs and strategies.  The RITC uses this intelligence to advocate on behalf of industry and inform policy deliberations of the State Training Board and Department of Training and Workforce Development.


The RITC seeks to ensure nationally recognised industry training in Western Australia is consistent with industry’s current and future needs.   In addition the RITC, across Western Australia, promotes and advocates for apprenticeships, traineeships and vocational education and training activity for secondary school students. 

The RITC is one of eleven Industry Training Advisory Bodies formally recognized by the State Training Board under Section 21(1)(b) of the Vocational Education and Training Act (1996) from which the Board takes advice for the purpose of developing a State Training Plan and making recommendations to the Minister regarding apprenticeships and traineeships.

The RITC Advisory Board is comprised of representatives from industries the RITC represents, relevant employee organisations, subject matter experts and ex-officio members from the Department of Training and Workforce Development and State Training Board.
