LNG Jobs Taskforce - Education, Training and Innovation

The Premier announced formation of an LNG Jobs Taskforce at the 2018 AOG Conference and Exhibition. This Taskforce aim is to establish WA as an LNG hub with government and industry working collaboratively to maximize the benefits that will flow from an expansion in the State’s LNG industry. A key focus will be harnessing job opportunities, opportunities for the introduction of new technology, greater collaboration across education/training programs and maintenance services.

The RITC previously participated in the Education, Training and Innovation Working Group activities, and led the LNG Operator Skills Framework project. This project aimed to specifically link nationally recognised qualification streams to job roles in the industry.


After extensive consultation 15 new units of competency and 7 occupational specialisations have been developed under the Certificate III in Process Plant Operations qualification. These new training products have undergone final endorsement by the Skills Minister, and became publicly available through the National VET register in November 2020.


A subsequent project now includes the development of learnings materials and assessment tools developed as above to support standardisation in training delivery. This project in under development with the Department of Jobs, Science, Training and Innovation (JTSI), South Metropolitan TAFE, and the RITC, with funds proposed by the WA State Government.

For further information or to express your interest further involvement please contact Amanda Hamilton at the RITC.
