    Looking for advice on Trade Skills Visa

    @VERYSTORMY he has 25 years experience which i mention in the original post. the three years was just alluding to the earlier post where Lavers said something about having done the job for at least 12 months during the last three years. Do you know where I would find an agent on here?

    Thanks for the advice so far - Yes, hes been doing it for the last 3 years, its been continual. Accreditation wont be a problem if he needs to get it, RPL/APL from what we can see so far he will need to be assessed anyway, by a recognised centre, so if he can be assessed by their approved centres and pass he would satisfy their criteria

    Thats great thanks @Lavers - He's done it since he was 16 so aside from in company accred, he never did any formal NVQs or anything but has 25 years from gen labour all the way to contracts manager. - Just trying to see if he needs NVQs or can be assessed in some way. Proving experience is not a problem. We are also looking at nominated route in SA as our closest friends live there.
  5. Hello, this is my first post. We have been looking into the possibility of joining our friends in Adelaide, but despite me having employable skills, I'm 45 so a no-go there for me. My husband appears to be eligible under the nominated skills list he is a general fitter with 25 years of experience. he has worked in various roles from age 16 to now. he began working in fabrication at 16 as a general labourer, head of the paint shop, completed an approvership within my company to become a fitter, spent 8 years as a pipefitter, chargehand and site foreman and contracts manager, overseeing a staff of 30 with budgets of up to 3 million. Today he has his own business in the UK maintaining fuel depots, working with small & medium bore pipework & tanker loading systems, maintaining repairing and modifying. Looking at the skills list, I see general fitter on the list of state nominated occupations. My question is what paper qualifications or credentials are required for me to be considered for entry? is anyone in here this type of tradesperson or similar that can share their story? Thanks in advance
