    It it probably best to ask a MARA agent your questions. I can share my experience with AITSL but I think your looking for a bit more in depth.

    I've not been to London but have been to two others and in my opinion the jobs line is just to sell tickets. Mainly 1 or 2 recruitment agencies advertising some jobs that may be available. You can pick up some useful info on other stuff like shipping and pets but remember it is mainly to drum up business for the vendors. Like a food festival. Pay to get in and then everyone wants to sell you their products. The DUC which organise the shows also do monthly webinars which go over the same info in an hour, are free and you don't have to leave the house.

    Early childhood Teacher is on the list but to get a positive skills assessment you would need 4 years of university. 3yr Bachelor followed by one year PGCE which includes at least 45 days supervised teaching practice. Asesssments are carried out by AITSL so perhaps take a look at their website and factsheets.

    He won't ask you to draw it out with star/ delta. He will ask once you wired up the board to look at the little motor and tell him how it should be done from looking at the plate. If its the same assessor he wasn't too fussed about symbols as long as you knew what you were saying and it checks out on the board. To be fair i seen him give one guy about 4 go's at it. He stepped into the next room for some air whilst i was doing the fault board so i tweaked his drawing for him. I stayed in the premier inn and ended up sharing breakfast with the assessor without either of us realising until the test started. If your way off the mark then your on your own but if your close he will give you something to think about without giving you the answer. Don't stress it too much. Two of the sections can be done eyes closed. We will probably look to land May 2019 once we have saved around 30k. As the house is gone etc. we good go earlier and are going to look at the job market for January as wife is a teacher and school year starts January.

    Not had the visa yet. Case officer asked or more info end of August (which was already there) so got to wait 28 days now before they look at it again. Been a long process but wouldn't part with the 3k the agent wanted so brought it on myself. Nearly there though. Where you going to head to when you get yours? Were thinking adelaide.

    Its not that bad. The guy testing is pretty sound. Stay over the night before if you can afford it. Long day and you get your head right. I started mine earlier than the letter said so managed to get the train station in good time.

    The motor I had was star but they have two of each board. They mix it up, so if there four people you will do one of the above each and cycle round. Makes it harder to cheat I suppose.

    Just beware that diagram you got doesn't show the overload contacts. Where you based?

    Down under centre did do a revision pack but it was 50 notes. Shame as only threw it out a couple months ago when i sold the house or you could of had it along with the dol and motor i acquired.

    Good diagram that because he will ask about the links shown in the bottom right. How to connect star and delta and ask you to read the motor plate for which it should be.

    Just get a dol starter with overload. What stuck in my mind is all stops in series i.e mcb through NC overload then remote stop and lastly local stop. I think there's only the one start button and the hold on contact. These are wired in parallel

    1.Theory - mainly science and formulas with some safety thrown in and questions about motors. They give you the formula sheet and good idea to show working as they will give some marks if you are close. 2. Motor as describes. Draw your version of above then wire it up. All accessories are pinned to a board with some having fly leads. Just take your time and think about it. 3.You have to do a very simple cable calc. Then connect up some sockets and a two way switch. Just the 2nd fix then test the install. 4. Faults like disconnected earth on fluorescent fitting or bonding loose.
