    Vetassess- Electrician

    Hi I’m new to the website after some help from what seems like a great community on here. I’ve been in Australia 3 years and have finally got enough money to apply for the electrical vetassess . I have the Skype interview soon and I’m just wondering if anyone can help me on what to revise and what to expect, I haven’t t done much electrical work since being in aus so I am abit rusty. I have 10 years experience in the UK but obviously college days feel like a distant memory. any help would be greatly appreciated. thanns allot Chris
  2. Hi, My husband has just passed his competency profile and is due to sit the VETASSESS General Electrician practical exam this April. The candidate guide doesn't give a lot of detail about what to expect from the exam..........has anyone sat the practical GE exam? We'd REALLY appreciate some info from anyone who completed the practical in February or last October so we know what to expect? Thanks very much, Morris'
  3. Hiya Ive got a question & Im hoping you helpful lot may be able to help? Should my O/h be offered a work sponsor 456 visa or we try to apply for a SS 176 he will have to do a Traset test, then either a Vetesses or Vic Uni test, the problems we have are: * Vetasses dont have anymore tests till past the the changes due in July * Vic Uni dont do a test for Tempory Visa only permanent visa's Come July we wont stand a chance of getting in, as he never trained via an apprenticeship, trained as a mature student & he is going to be 41 this year. Ive even wondered along the possibly of getting a Working Holiday Visa (although I havnt read up on the criteria of these yet) then going to Aus on that, then getting the 456 & doing the relevent tests out there, then 2 years down the line try & get the 176 PR visa?????? Any thoughts or other ideas would be really appreciated :sad::arghh::mad::unsure::nah::no:
  4. Hi Can anyone please tell me if there are any advisable books that should be brought, prior to to doing the Vetasses practical exam? As some of the parts of the test my o/h has never done before ie, DOL motor wiring with remote & emergency stop and S & Y boiler wiring etc. O/h never trained via an apprenticeship, we paid for him to do it as a mature student over 4 or so years, obtaining C&G 2360 part 1 & 2, 2391, 2381, 2382, 2377, 2372. He is now working as a Solar Pv Installer & we have looked into Vetasses/TRA requirements & feel that prehaps he isnt suitable to emigrate? Is it worth him obtaining AM2, as I understand some of these subjects are covered. Or give up on our dreams? Any advice etc would be brilliant Many thanks in advance :sad:
  5. Hi There Just asking for my sister. They arrived in rural NSW in December and her hubby has been emplyed as an Auto Electrician since they arrived. He specialises in Buses and Large Vehicles and got a position with no problem at a bus manufacturers. Whilst they love the place it really is too rural for them and there is nothing for her to do so they are now planning to head up to Brisbane in August (when we go over). They have started sending his CV out to the big companies but were wondering if there are any good agencies that deal with Auto Electrians as there seem to be very few jobs advertised. Also when he started work for this company they didn't as for Australian registration, will this be required in Queensland? Many Many Thanks Jen xx
