To support effective asset management practices within the transmission industry, and to ensure Grid Skills services and deliverables meet current and emerging technical training requirements necessary, the Grid Skills Governance Committee (GSGC) was formed to provide direction and manage high level decisions relating to Grid Skills purpose, business model and deliverables.

In addition to the guidance provided by the GSGC, Grid Skills also uses a diverse range of forums and information channels to connect with transmission industry participants to ensure their industry specific training needs are met.
