    Electrician in need of guidance.

    Thanks all im just waiting for a response.
  3. Hi all I appreciate there are other electrical chats and topics so apologies for starting another chat. So I'm a qualified electrician and we are looking at making the move to the sunny coast. I only have eal qualifications is there anyone on here thats have made the moves with these qualifications the problem I'm having is it was a 6 week course. We had a strategy session with our emigration agent and he said he's concerned with the lack of training only being a 6week course. I'm now in my 5th year of being qualified and working for myself he said we could proceed with the process but hes not sure on the skilled assessment with the training that I have. All help, advice, and guidance is greatly appreciated

  5. Hi all I've just started reading this thread it's going to take some time. I'm looking for some advice and guidance I'm currently looking to do a short electricians course 5 weeks I think and then set about working for a company to get a few years experience under my belt the course I'm looking at doing it will end up with 4 city & guilds level 3. Now my questions to you all is. 1. Is this worth doing as now 28 and looking for a new career but can't afford to do an apprenticeship as have mortgage etc. 2. Will the skill and city & guilds qualify me to be accepted for a visa to move to Oz. 3. Would I need to do an nvq. 4. What other things would I need to complete. 5. How many years experience would I need before I could make the jump. I know most or all of my answers will probably be in the thread but like I said I've just started reading and it's going to take a while. Any help advice and guidance would be a great help. Many thanks Gene.

    Hi all taking the leap.

    When I 1st started looking at going about 4 years ago I went with global visa and they said I qualify for a visa and again about 2 years ago just to make sure I still could and again got a yes due to my mechanical engineering qualifications and the Mrs would get in on that. I'm going to update my cv tonight and send it to go matilda and see wot the out come is.
