    Plumbing TRA question

    Hello everyone. Have had a look at the TRA on-line and from what I can see you need to tick every box, is this true because if it if there are a lot of things in this form that British plumbers don't do, if that is the case then where do I go from there??? By the points system I have enough points but with the TRA I fall short on a couple of areas, its not that I can't do it, more of a case that I don't do it. Any answers/help would be gratefully received! :unsure::confused:

  8. Hi People, Just wonderd if you can give me some help, me and my gf are goin through the 457 visa which is nearly complete she has been headhunted from a company over there which now requires me to send off my application, i have done this and the TRA have recived the application but i have now had a reply off them sayin : Thank you for your enquiry to Trades Recognition Australia (TRA). Your application was received by the TRA office on 12 July 2011 and was unable to be processed as you do not have sufficient Australian working rights. A letter has been sent to you advising you of this and how it effects your application Do we need to get the 457 Visa complete before sending this application form off as we thought sending the application form off now would speed things up. Hope you can help us both Cheers Stew

    Toolmaker TRA - help needed.

    Hi, Just joined this forum after looking through the posts for the past few days. I'm currently in the process of appealing my TRA refusal. They are asking for "independent evidence from my employer detailing the period of apprenticeship to align the apprenticeship training to the sought occupation of toolmaker". I have now got the information they have requested but am now concerned that my apprenticeship was a 3 year one and not 4 years. Does this mean i cannot attain pathway A or B? Not really sure what a "5 year informal apprenticeship" actually is?

    TRA evidence Question

    Hmmm, I have the problem of not being able to get a statement from my employer. I do have a statement but it's lacking following information: -the nature of your employment (full-time, part-time) -your normal hours of work -your job title (occupation) -a detailed description of the nature and content of the work you undertook, along with the machines, tools and/or equipment you used. I wonder if proving these with pay-slips and a description of the job on a seperate document (my CV) would be accepted. Since getting a Witnessed statutory declaration even seems impossible in my country of residence (Belgium). I wondered if anybody had any experience with this?? Thanks in advance
  12. Wondering whether anyone out there has experienced the same situation I’m in and how they went about sorting the problem out? Here it goes…. I came to Aus on a spouse visa five plus years ago and live on the Sunshine Coast. My UK background/trade is Telecoms and Electrical, and I’m trying to start the process of getting my sparks license in Queensland. Now this is the problem…. I came to Aus without the use of an immigration agent, so have only a vague idea of the process to getting my sparks License. I have no issues with trade skilling tests and Aussie Electrical Rules exams, but what I can’t get info on is where to start this process?? I have been in touch with the TRA, but all they do is send me email links on a basic email format which point back to government websites relating to people that want to apply for a visa on the basis of there trade, well I don’t need no visa as I already have a permanent residence. All I want is the bloody form that I have to send in to them and the details they require to start the process. Anyway….I’m hoping than there might be some Pom or another expat reading this that has been in a similar situation and can kindly point me in the right direction, because they will be doing me a lot more good that the useless bunch of ****s called the TRA!!! :arghh: Thanks in advance……..
  13. Please help, I'm nominating the ff occupation for ACT State sponsorship but it does not belong in TRA's list of occupations to be assessed. 1st option - Hardware technician 2nd option - ICT Customer Support Officer How can my skills be assessed?

    Drainer Assessment

    Hi, first time posting so please be gentle! My husband is a Groundworker in the UK. His job covers all of the skills under Drainer on the SOL. Unfortunately as he has no formal qualifications (other than machine licences) we are unable to get a TRA assessment. TRA have told me our best option is for him to obtain an AQF III certificate, however the highest you can go is AQF II for Drainer and I can't for the life of me find anybody who will assess him based on 20 years experience. He's not a plumber so not sure a plumbing AQF assessment would be of any use (he'd probably fail). Is anybody else in the same position as us? I've read a few posts on here about this but nothing too recent... Be very grateful for any advice. many thanks Alex

    TRA Assessments please help

    Good Evening Guys and Girls I really need an agent to help me with my tra assessment. I was in touch with go matilda and they quoted me £600 to help me. Is this price reasonable or shall I look elsewhere. I was confident i could do it myself but now starting to think i would like it checked over because i dont want to mess this up. Do you guys know any good agents with good reputation that you have used and would recommend. Any Gas Fitters out there who have gone though this process would love to hear from you. I've seen the name Glenn Newton thrown around but seems he doesnt operate any more. Any help guys most welcome. thanks in advance:confused:
  19. Thought I would share the news......................:biggrin: Just got my TRA assessment back all fine. OZ here we come.:laugh: Well here we come in about 18 months!!!

I called TRA today, but they said they can do nothing with them!!!! What can I do? 1st Jul is round the corner. Any advice is appreciated. My occupation 323112
  21. Hi all I have just been sponsored by an employee via ENSOL and my new boss is already in the process of filling out form 785 I am now preparing to apply to TRA, but before calling them wanted as much information as possible He is filling me through ENSOL as: 313112 - ICT Customer Support Officer What kind of documents should I have ready for the TRA ASSESSMENT? I have copies of my AVCE certificates which are equivalent to NVQ3 or 2 A-levels or a AQF Diploma Can get Police records Can get Medical checks Do I need to supply copies of my p45’s and get written and signed documents stating where I worked and how long I worked there for including my active duties in the role? I have 6 years’ experience across 3 companies Any info on the TRA assessment will be really helpful! Will keep track of this thread from start to finish

    passed my TRA!!!! yay

    I just wanted to be someone with a happy thread lol, Ive just this minute received my outcome letter from TRA to say my application has been successful. I was paranoid with the documents i'd sent. Im a self employed hairdresser by the way lol. :-))))))))
  23. Hi, OH just received his positive skills assessment but what a bloody nightmare the whole process has been. We are not dwelling on it though just so delighted about the outcome.:biggrin::biggrin: I am now ready to submit our WA SS application (woo hoo) however I am unsure if I need to certify the 3 documents that they request. I have been on WA immi website but I cannot see this info anywhere, it may be that I am having a "brown" moment lol. Could someone kindly advise. Thanks in advance, Gillian
  24. http://www.deewr.gov.au/Skills/Programs/SkillsAssess/TRA/Pages/ChangetoSkilledWorkerProgram.aspx can Does that mean trade course students who can gather 65 points and are confident that they can pass the tra rto assessment need not go through the job ready program and can go for a test and if they pass they can apply for permanent residency based on point system. any info from experts will be highly appreciated. thanks.
