Public consultation on the draft Glass and Glazing unit Case for Change is now closed. Thank you to all industry expert stakeholders who provided feedback to help shape the document. It is now being prepared by IBSA for approval by the Furnishing IRC and is scheduled to be submitted to the AISC in April 2021.

Notification of Update

Extended transition period for MSF30418 Certificate III in Glass and Glazing (Release 1)

On 16 April 2021, the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) agreed to extend the transition period of the MSF30418 Certificate III in Glass and Glazing (Release 1) until 6 May 2022. ASQA has agreed that learners would be genuinely disadvantaged if they were required to transition to the latest release of the qualification as learners would not have the opportunity to undertake unit MSFGG2010 Fabricate and install insect and security screens and achieve the fabrication skills and knowledge required by the sector. This extension is granted to all registered training organisations (RTOs) delivering the MSF30418 Certificate III in Glass and Glazing (Release 1).
