    Hi Cat thanks for all your help I thought the food service would be the hardest part too. I have sent you a private message with my email address. Many thanks

    Hi Cat, thanks for your reply. I am sitting my exams this Sept in London. How did you find the exams? Did you have much preparation to do for them? I work in Eating Disorders so I'm going to have to read up on other areas of dietetics that I haven't worked in for a while. The DAA gave me information about mentors, did you have access to one or did you just study yourself for exams. Thanks for any advice you can give me

    Hi, I'm not sure about the skills assessment as you are the main applicant. However in order for your wife to work as a dietitian in Australia she will need to be registered and therefore will have to sit the registration exams. She may have to have a skills assessment to ensure her qualifications are equivalent to those of Australian standards. The basic outline of the assessment process is: Desktop assessment (getting your skills assessed) Stage 2. MCQ examination - (written examination) Stage 3. Oral examination - you are expected to complete the Oral as soon as possible once you have passed the MCQ. However If you contact the DAA they will be able to advise you in more detail, as it might be different for your wife as you will be living in Australia and not needing the skills for a visa. I don't think you can obtain APD unless you are registered. Hope this helps.

    It's been 5 weeks since I got my confirmation letter but I have been in touch with the DAA and was told it will be September before I can sit my exams. Hopefully we'll both fly through the exams and be working in Victoria soon.

    Hi Jlew, Thanks for getting back to me. I seem to be at the same stage as your wife and am waiting to hear back from the DAA also. It looks like it will be September before I am able to sit the exams. Hope everything goes well for you both.

    Hi everyone and Happy New Year! I am a UK trained dietitian and am in the process of moving to Victoria where dietitians are on the state sponsored list. I have applied to the DAA to get my skills assessed and am wondering can I apply for my 190 visa once my skills are positively assessed or do I have to wait until I sit my registration exams to do this? Also are there many jobs for dietitians in Melbourne? Many thanks for any information.
