    Chef Job Ready Program

    Hi all, I’ve recently started my Job Ready Program as a chef and I’ve got two jobs as commis chef, one of them is in a Cafe which task are more related to plating and doing preps, there’s stove and oven as well as toasters. Would this job be accepted? I’ve tried calling TRA but they don’t have clear answer and I don’t want to take the risk my title is commis chef part time.

    Hi everyone, I need your advice here. I have been working for my company for the past 6 years and was been paid by cash. So like that, I don’t have bank statement but I do have tax statement and payslips. Will this be enough to get a positive assessment from TRA. <b>Thanks </b>
  3. Hi, I'm looking to put in an EOI for 189 but not sure what skills assessment i should be taking. It looks like theres one for TSS, migration, and another. I'm a chef and advice on who to go through would be ideal. I'd just like to know which skills assessment i should be taking. Cheers
  4. Since 2016 I am having positive skill assessment from TRA in my occupation 342313. My MSA outcome clearly declare my work experience to claim point but MSA outcome does not mention my educational equivalency. Just On behalf of TRA positive assessment can I claim 10 point in education?
  5. HELLO everyone I got my second assessment outcome for the hope to be invited for 190 NSW for the occupation electronic instrument trades worker (general) 342314 on 6th march and submitted an eoi for nsw 190 visa. my previous assessment was electronic instrument trades worker (special class) 342315 that wasn't on the NSW list. I am claiming 60+5 points, (having pte academic +65 score). this is about 2 weeks I am waiting to be invited for nsw but a little I am disappointed !!! do you think I should try for pte academic +79 that is somehow difficult for me or wait for more? how likely am I going to be invited? is there anyone with the same occupation and points? thanks
  6. Hi, i have a question about the academic transcript that is required by the tra. What does a successful one look like? How much info do they expect?The school where i did my apprenticeship (full time at school, practical and theoretical parts, not half paid employment, half school (btw. is that going to be a problem?) ) has got a document that outlines the content and hours of the course for each year in detail, but it is over 40 pages long. That would cost a fortune to have it translated to english. Could I write a summary of the document with key words and hours completed and have it signed by the school??? cheers
  7. Hello everyone i am currently in the proccess of applying for skilled visa (189/ 190- depending on IELTS score) i am an installer of Home audio video (home theatre systems) and smart homes for the past 12 years - my immigration agent told me that since i do not have a certificate that is recognized by australian government i need to have a skills assessment interview at the UK before applying for the visa. my question is: As i can understand - electronic equipment trades consist of a variety of proffesions such as alarm techniciens / electronic repair techniciens and computer techniciens. which are quiet different from my daily job. in this assessment interview will i be asked about my specific field of expertise or should i take a course to master also in-depth testing of electronic circuits or other computer assembly etc. Also can i find online any list of topics or interview examples that i can refer to prior to booking my own interview? Thank you for your time your advice will be much apreciated Nathaniel

    Gathering papers for TRA

    Hey, I'm gathering all the papers for occupation assessment at TRA. I got almost all papers gathers. Although, I got a question... In migration skills assessment guidelines it is saying, I must gather two sets of pay evidence for each year of work. Did anyone else go through this and can tell me first hand... I'm not from English spoken country. Those papers are mostly numbers, do I have to get them NAATI translated aswell? Thanks for you help Peter, Slovenia


    Hello everyone, I received my successful outcome for Electronic Instrument trades worker (special class), (342315) from TRA (trades recognition Australia) on 12 October and submitted an EOI ON 8th November claiming 60 points. Is there any hope to be invited until April or even until June 2018 ?!!! because no one knows what will happen after July 2018 !!!

    189/190 - Cabinetmaker Journey

    Hello I am a newbie to this forum! I tend to update this thread with my PR journey. I haven't applied for even assessment yet. Will be needing your guy's suggestions etc I am going to apply for the 189 Cabinet Maker (3941) and I have a few questions regarding the points before sending the EOI. Let's say If I get 60 points, is there a long time to wait for the invitation or since there is almost no one applying as cabinet maker, would it go faster since this trade is in demand in Australia but only a few people apply. Or do all trades end up in the same pile? You know what I am trying to ask! I have checked the Occupation Ceiling 2017/2018 for Cabinet Maker on http://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Work/Skil/ it's 1905 for year 2017/2018 and none has been granted yet. My current location is Pakistan (if that helps). Thanks!

    Locksmith visas

    Did anyone find a way round the TRA assessment for the skilled visas as the UK training isn't recognised? I've read back on some of the previous posts regarding this but the threads and links are dated and just wondering if there are any up to date links available?
  14. Hi Guys, I am on 457 visa as a Butcher ( 1 year). I got through RPL a Certificate III in Meat processing last month. I am intend to apply to get my skills assessed on Trades Recognition Australia. They say: "The TRA Migration Skills Assessment Applicant Guidelines state that where an AQF qualification has recently been obtained through RPL, an applicant must also provide evidence of employment that: covers no less than six years of full-time (or equivalent) paid employment, three years of which may be as a trainee under the direct supervision of a tradesperson/employer (this is considered an informal training period) with an additional three years full-time (or equivalent) paid employment completed at the required skill level for the occupation." I already have one year of experience in Australia and back to my country I got 2 years of experience as a trainee but I was under 16 and after that 4 years as full time. And it was more than 10 years ago (I am 32 years old). Does anyone in this forum had any similar experience? Thanks
  15. Hello! I am new to pomsinoz but I would really appreciate any help you can provide. I have been a kindergarten/preschool director for 5 and a half years and before that I have been an early childhood teacher for three years. I have a Bachelors Degree in Pedagogy of Primary and Preschool Education. I am planning to migrate to Oz as a Child Care Center Manager (ANZCO 134111) with the Direct Entry stream - 186 visa. The first step in this process would be to get a successful assessment from TRA. I think immi requires a BA for this position (because it's at skill level 1). As a kindergarten director I have done all the tasks (and more) listed on the immi website for this job and the kindergarten where I have worked resembles in a lot of ways a Childcare Center (after-school, offered lunch, nap time, etc.). I believe these should be enough but I am not sure what TRA is looking for... Do you think I am qualified enough and have enough work experience to get a successful assessment from TRA? Any advice you could give me would be great
  16. Hi chaps You may think I am being a complete fool! But What is the address to send your TRA skills assessment? Do you just send it to the TRA office in Canberra? TRA dept of industry GPO Box3022 Canberra ACT 2601 Australia Just want to make sure it's right before I spent £50 posting it!! Thanks So excited this day has finally arrived!!

    TRA Assessment

    Dear Friends, I will be launching application of skill assessment for 312412 Electronic Engineering Technician with TRA. I have few questions regarding TRA Assessment but first I am going to explain my profile details. Education: 3 Years diploma (Electronics) From May 2003 till June 2006 and 2 Years bachelor degree from September 2009 till February 2010 (One year of study was omitted based on work experience). Employment: Company A: Worked as Printed Circuit Board Design Engineer from January 2006 till November 2009 = 35 Months Company B: Worked as Senior Printed Circuit Board Design Engineer from January 2010 till August 2012 = 32 Months Company C: Working as Printed Circuit Board CAM Engineer from October 2012 till now = 23 Months and counting So here are my questions. I hope this form will help me out in my decision. Q1. Company A is not longer exists, I only have 2 letters from this company which indicates my position title, joining and finishing date but I have contact details of my supervisor so I am planing to make a statutory declarations regarding this situation and will also attach these two letter that I have. Please let me know your thoughts about this. Q2. From Company B, I have received an employment letter which covers all the required information that TRA ask for in an employment statement. This is the only letter that I can show for this company. Please let me know if it will be okay and sufficient for TRA. Q3. My first plane is to submit TRA assessment application with all 3 companies work experience. Can anyone please explain me what will be written on TRA outcome letter i.e. Will it be mention that how many years of skilled work applicant have or something like this?? Q4. If TRA do not mention this information about how many years of skilled work do applicant have then I think the better option for me will be to submit application with only Company B and Company C and later with DIAC I will submit application with all 3 companies with statutory declarations for Company A . Please let me know if it will work this way? Thanks for reading this out and for your time and replies, I know it is a bit long post :wink:.

  20. Hi guys, after hours searching for informations on the internet here my post. I am a qualified chef in germany and since then worked 5 years as a chef ( 3 years chef de partie in new zealand, 5 months cdp in australia). I want to get a permanent residency visa cause my work and holiday expires in june. i found a sponsor here in rural victoria and was thinking to apply for a 186 visa. does anyone have experience with this visa? is it possible to get pr with a sponsor and direct entry? I am working as well on a skills assessment with tra. turns out they need heaps of informations to assess my skills. i have work references and payslips from the last 3 years but not before that. should be enough though as they write i need to proof 3 years of experience. I am struggling with the letter they want to explain in own words what i worked in each job. does it need to be really detailed? would be a few pages long per employer i guess. any help/experience on the 186/187 visa or skills assessment will be much appreciated. thanks Lucas

    TRA Employment reference

    Hi I am preparing my TRA skill assessment application for cook 351411. I am reallystruggling what to include in employment reference:wacko:. Is anyone willing to share reference? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
  22. Hey, Im after some assistance in my UK trade & qualifications 'converting' to Australian Qualifications. I successfully completed a; Advanced Modern Apprenticeship in Engineering I also have the following; Advanced Diploma in Engineering and Technology (Electrical/Electronic) BTEC Higher National Certificate (HNC) in Electrical/Electronic Engineering NVQ Level 2 in Performing Engineering Operations NVQ Level 3 in Electrical and Electronic Engineering Whilst completing my apprenticeship & these qualifications I worked for an electrical manufacturing company for 4-5years so have hands on experience. I am already a Permanent Resident of Australia having been here for 4 years already, I have just recently applied to become a citizen. I have done some digging around on the internet and reckon my trade is similar to a cert 3 engineering:electrical/electronic. I have also found that this trade maybe eligible for a electrical license but thats just going by internet forums. I am completely stuck on what to do and where to go so If you could point me in the right direction I would appreciate it. I keep being told to head down the TRA route but Im not to sure on what to apply under as Electrical Fitter is more an Electrician but then think I maybe eligible?!?!
  23. Hi, We're pulling together paperwork for our TRA assesment. My husband has worked as an electrical technician on helicopters for about 13 years. Avionics technician has just been removed from the SOL (which is the most natural choice of occupation title for him) but is currently on the NT and ACT lists for state sponsorship but if possible we'd like to get him in as an electrical engineer technician which is on the SOL and gives us more flexibility about where we move to without the restrictions of staying in a specific state for two years. His qualifications and apprenticeship are all in general electrical and electronic engineering but obviously his work experience has all been doing electrics on on aircrafts. Does anyone have any experience of putting forward a TRA assessment for an occupation that straddles two job titles? Will the TRA literally just check his experience and qualifications against a checklist of standards for the role of electrical engineering technician or do they review him and then pigeon hole him into the most suitable category? It's really tricky as his experience and qualifications would allow him to work on trains, boats, cars etc so in that respect it's unfair to limit him to being an aircraft technician. Our migration agent is going to review all of his evidence and then advise us which occupation she thinks we need to go for but I just wondered if anyone on here had any experience or trying to nominate an occupation that isn't necessarily exactly the job they have been doing? Also, do the TRA speak to your employers too? Would he need to specify a particular person for them to contact as we haven't told his work we're hoping to emigrate as it's such early days in the process. Thanks a lot. Any advice would be really welcome.
  24. Hi There I’m wondering if any of you clever people could lend me your brains for just a min.. So, Iwant to live and work in Australia.

  25. Hello Everybody, Mt agent had sent in my papers to the TRA this February (ANZSCO 323112). He had received an email from them saying that they got the papers on the 26th Feb and an acknowledgment letter had been sent out. However my agent has still not received it. Does it mean that my papers haven't yet been processed?? Also what is this "March cut-off" for the TRA that i have been reading about? Please, any info will be appreciated. I am almost on the verge of going nuts waiting for any kind of good news. Thanks ​leon
