I am very new to the visa process, although I have spent the last 5 years getting the right qualifications to allow me to apply for a visa! I trained to be a plumber 5 years ago, and then trained to be a gas engineer. I work as a gas engineer and i am applying for a state sponsored WA visa 190.
I was going to apply to have my skills assessed as a Gas Engineer, but I have been told that, I would be better off having my skills assessed as a plumber, as in Australia, Gas is seen as just another strand of plumbing, not as a separate occupation. I have not had much plumbing experience, the work I do is all boilers and central heating systems. Has anyone else had any experience of this? I think I may go ahead with the plumbing skills assessment, what do you think?
