  7. Hi Can any plumbers give us some info to what happens at Vetasses practical. What type of things do they ask you to do for a general plumber? Have just sent an evidence matrix to agent and there were 2 aspects on it which have no experience in, sprinkler systems and concrete leveling, agent has advised to study up on those as they might still come up at practical. Any advice appreciated. Maz
  8. hi all, myself and my partner have applied for a skilled visa. for australia. i work as a general electrician here in the uk, im apprentice trained and been qualified for 4 years. we have just found out that the written part of our TRA was successful and have been invited to sit the practical exam on april/july. i am basically writting this thread because i am slightly nervous about the practical exam because i dont know what it entails. i have been told that it is similar to the AM2 exam ....is this true? i think the curiosity is getting the better of me cos i rarely get nervous about anything, but there is quite alot at stake with this practical exam as both of us would move to australia in the morning! if anyone out there has already sat the exam and can spare the time to explain wat i should be swotting up on it would be much appreciated. thanks very much. rocirish

  11. Hi all, Just rec'd news today that my OH passed the practical he attended on 10th December in Lancashire. So now we can lodge our application for visa yippeee... Can anyone tell me how long needs to left on our current uk passports when we apply. It says on the online application they recommend 6 months but this doesn't sound very long what happens if it were to expire before visa granted. Many thanks to anyone who can help. Wishing everyone a Very Happy 2008.

    Hi all Just thought I would let anyone waiting to hear from vetassess that my other half received confirmation today that he will be doing his practical between 7th - 12th April in London. He is a Refrigeration Engineer. They received his application about three weeks ago. Hope this is of help to some of you that are waiting to hear. If anyone has done the practical for refrigeration then any hints and tips would be great. Thanks B
  13. Hi Every One Just Wanted To Know , If Anyone Has Any News Or Results To The Tests Taken In December, And Whats Involved, I Have Read One Post And It,s Supposed To Be A Bit Of A Nightmare. Any Information Would Be Much Appreciated.
  14. My OH is going to take the Vetasses Plumbers practical in April. We would like to hear from anyone who has already taken it to give us some information as to what it entailed. Understand that the test is based in Accrington, so will he have to take his tools with him from London, or are they provided? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
