  2. Hi guys. i am coming to Australia on a working holiday visa, and looking for sponsorship as an electrician. i have just been assessed as Electrical mechanic and an ARTC has been granted. This was assessed by the local trades committee in QLD. Apparently i need to apply for a restricted licence. where do i go about getting this from ? how long will it take. I have heard lots of conflicting stories about licensing. can i go to Adelaide with my ARTC and sit the wiring regs course at PEER ? will this give me an A grade licence. can i then transfer by mutual recognition ? PLEASE HELP IT'S DOING MY HEAD IN :arghh: THANKS BEN
  3. Hi. Sorry I should have worded it differently. I will be looking for sponsorship whilst over there. Thanks

    UK electrician with whv

    hi all thanks for taking the time to read my thread. i am taking the plunge and leaving for oz in jan 2012 with a working holiday visa with the intention is to get sponsored while im over there. i am a 20yo fully qualified JIB uk electrician with 5 years domestic and commercial experience. i also hold C&G 2372 solar pv course.i have been reading about completing an ARTC before leaving and have completely confused myself. i am just wondering what information they will be looking for in my application and in how much detail. also do you think it would be a wise move to go through a special migration agent ? im sure this thread is already on here somewhere but cannot find exactly what im looking for. thanks in advance Ben
