    Technical Interview for Diesel Mechanic (HEAVY)

    Hi, my technical interview was pretty straightforward. It was done on Skype with power point. The bloke doing the interview asked me about what I did and put me at ease,then we started. The format was he would show me pictures of things (starter motor etc etc) and ask me about them. I made sure I answered with as much technical information as possible and incorporated health and safety, Engineering hygiene etc etc into as many answers as possible. All in all it took about an hour and three quarters. Sure you you will be fine, as long as you know the basics and can explain how things work and workshop practices. good luck.

    Get Going Migration Agent

    Emma, as a tight bloke from up north I did it all on my own without an agent for our family. its straightforward just takes a little dedication and time spent researching, saying that we got it all done in 5months (190 visa). It means you can save a couple of grand and put that towards the actual move. all the best

    Technical Interview for Diesel Mechanic (HEAVY)

    Hi Rita, the whole skills assessment took about 12 weeks from sending the application off. I first sent all my certification off and got that part back with an invite to apply for the technical interview. Once I applied for the technical interview I had about a 3-4 wait before I had the interview I got about a weeks notice of the interview. When ever I was getting anxious I normally just got up super early and gave them a ring to check on my progress. Hope this helps Cheers Chris

    5 weeks today for us, the wait is driving me insane. Surely we will get a case officer soon as I can't keep my fingers and toes crossed much longer.

    June lodged 190 Visa

    W lodged ours on the 28th June, just in the nick of time before the prices and process changed, Have uploaded loads of certified evidence and sent off for the Police checks, not sure how to go about h=getting health checks done without being invited, any help would be fantastic??
  15. If there is a set process for getting the health checks done, which involves waiting to be told what your health requirements are. How do you go about getting them done and pre loaded onto your application. We have our Application lodged(WA 190) and have uploaded loads of certified evidence (qualifications , skills assessments passports birth certs etc etc). We have also had the confirmation email of the verifying our application. However there is no link to booking medicals all it says in "Next Steps" is that the health requirements have not yet been determined. Is there a way of getting the medicals done and uploaded off your own back? Sorry for rambling on, any advice or pointers in the right direction would be fantastic Chris
