    New British Passport issued.....

    They like you to get it put into your new passport , we had a bit of a drama returning from UK last year . Some jumped up know all , started going on about "that isn't valid if it's not in your new passport blah blah....... shut up you idiot. I dont think he liked that. So i pionted out that even though the visa was still valid and in date. We were in fact citizens of Australia now,and the visa become's redundent. This fact did not sink in either so i called his supervisor over and got her to tell him in words he could understand, then like a light being switched on, you could see it in his eye's . He knew what a **** he had been..........I just waited for the apology............ Hope this help's:goofy:

    Bricklaying in nsw

    You will need a green card in NSW , get the local paper and in the back will be all the info for getting one , you may be able to do it on line . Find either the Master builders or HIA, Australia .But most RTO's will have a course going at most times .Cost is about $80.00. and you can use this card in Queensland aswell. All the best

  5. <p>Hi Karen, Registered Training Organization are trainers and help you get your English qualifications changed into Australian ones, that is if you want to work for yourself and gain a license to do this. Most qualifications from outside are not recognized , which they don't tell you before you get here , even though the Australian government do recognize.I mite add that you will be able to work for a company as an employee , but not selfemployed as you will not have the required papers , catch 22. Just give us a call if you need anymore info .</p>


    <p>Hi, i just wanted to ask you about the RTO's, my OH is a spray painter, he sprays wood, but is at tech at the minute getting an NVQ for vehicle painting. We would be grateful for any info at all. </p>

    <p>Thanks, Karen.</p>

  10. Hi, Alliekate. This is somthing tolally off what you are feeling at the moment. An agency in London is advertising for 400 bricklayers from England and Europe to land in Townsville on building projects.(by the end of Feb) So soon, you'll have all of us flood your town , beach , parks , pools , just think of the mess there going to make . Just to let you know and you can make provision for the invasion, and as luck would have i'm a bricklayer . It's all BONZER.
