I contacted ETL at the start of the year and they said I had to be in Australia before I could apply for the course etc, but looking at what you guys have acheived it looks like the rules have relaxed. Think I'll send in my application and see how it gets on. Leaving for Perth in September, so hope I can get it all sorted for then.
I was just wondering, what visa you got granted and did you get your course fees subsidised? I'm just asking because I've read on here that if you get a PR visa then you get money knocked off the price, if its any help to you. How much did you finally pay(if you don't mind me asking:-))?

Hi there, sorry to borrow the thread, one my customers at the garage I run in the Nt in Alice springs is looking for sparkies for general electrical work, if anyone is looking for work or a sponsor then I can pass you details on, cheers.
Hello, I have been working as an electrician for 6years in the UK, I didn't do an apprenticeship I just sat the 17th edition exam. (Im a PLC programmer and do electrical breakdowns mainly) I applied to the TRA back in 2009 and they said I couldn't apply as I didn't have an apprenticeship or 7 years experience. Is there anyone in a similar situation as me and can help? I don't fancy doing an apprenticeship at 27. I already have a 810 visa.

Hi. I Have just gained my as 3000 authorisation in melbourne and was wondering if anyone knows, can it be transferred somehow back in the uk to b able to work as a spark in the uk?
This is a great thread I have received really good feedback on here once already and now back for some more help!!
So last I wrote on here we were going through getting my partner trade recognised and now he has all of that and has eventually done his A grade license so he can work. However there are yet more courses and tests that are recommended for him to do if he wants to get onto the mines.
One of which is the Cert IV in Electrical instrumentation. Basically those that have done it will have done a web log book of examples of work ect and as my partner isn't the most literate (great at hands on but not so good at re-listing jobs he has carried out) I normally help with the paperwork side of things so am writing up what he has said but I was wondering if anyone has kept their log books so that I could take a look at to get the right gist as to lay out and examples?
Would really appreciate any help as I am getting a bit fed up of my partner getting frustrated with me as I don't understand what he is talking about!!
just want to clear a few things that I have experienced since arriving 3 weeks ago in Queensland. Some of the stuff on here just isn't correct, not blaming anyone, things just get a bit like Chinese whispers sometimes.
I have only used this quote as i read it about peer veet.
I got granted my ARTC electrical mechanic October last year. They may of done in the past but now they will not send it out to you unless you have proof that you are in the Australia, ie passport stamped or proof of address, I have been trying since arrival to get it sent out. Had to get a declaration and copy of passport stamp signed by a local notary after being refused with aus bank statement. Still waiting for it to arrive.
I enrolled on the peer veet distance learning course while in the uk, completed the work book, took around 30 hours. You have to complete it before you can book in for the revision and exam week. The course is by no means impossible to fail. I have just completed the 4 days today. Out of the 9 that where there, 2 defiantly failed, 5 where resetting parts that where just under the pass mark 80% when I left, not sure what the outcome was. Only two of us passed straight away. If you complete the work book properly and read through it it's not to bad but it's definitely not a turn up and pass course.
We went to the licensing place this afternoon and you can apply straight away, they just copy your peer veet cert and artc cert, take details and a picture for card and said it would take 1 to 2 weeks for card to come through. As I haven't received my ARTC cert yet they filled everything out and said to copy it and post it when it arrives and they will process license. I showed him the grant letter as proof but he said they needed to sight the actuall certificate first.
I had completed the OTSR though vetassesse in the uk for visa, this will only get you a restricted license if you do the SA peer veet route so is not much use for that, it has to be the ARTC.
I have also read that you can't transfer to Queensland. The guy in the licensing place in Adelaide said they do it all the time and I have spoken to a friend who is sparking in Brisbane who says a few people he works with have done the transfer recently with no problems.
I did CPR and low voltage rescue combined course last week for $80 took about 3 hours, and white card was $50 took about 2 hours, both easy, can book them a couple of days in advance.
This is what has actually happened since I arrived 3 weeks, first hand info.
Hope this helps or gets rid of any confusion.
Any one needs any more info about our experience since arrival, ie rental property, car from auction, bank, schools. Maybe not in the electricians thread.
Will keep you posted of any more development.
