    Fibre Optic Engineer Help

    Hi guys this is my first thread on this website, and I need a little help! My fella and I want to move to Oz. He is a fibre optic engineer, working for BT. He has 3 years fibre optic work and 17 months in copper. He didnt do a city and guilds apprenticeship but was taught on the job. As such we are currently doing the AQF 3 in telecommunications. After that we can then go to TRA and start the visa process. I am wondering if anyone has done this without the australian visa bureau? For the qualification, agency, TRA, visa and all the other bits were looking at around £7k and im wondering if we can save some money by doing it ourselves or if the agency really is worth there weight in gold? There also seems to be a lot of confusion over what we should be applying for, lines telecommunications engineer, cable jointer etc. Does anyone have any better ideas what fibre optic engineer would fall under?? Thanks guys!

    NBN Fibre Optic way to go

    Been discussions about our new roll out. Well the Germans seem to have found out that its pretty fast stuff. "Scientists have set a new data speed record using just a single laser to transmit the equivalent of 700 DVDs in one second. They say their discovery will not only help to fulfil the world's burgeoning high-capacity bandwidth needs of cloud computing and 3D-high definition TV, but provide an environmentally-friendly way of transmitting data over long distances. Earlier this year, Japanese scientists set a world record sending 109 terabits per second using multiple lasers. But the data rate of 26 terabits per second reported by the group of German, Swiss and UK scientists in today's Nature Photonics is the largest line rate ever recorded using a single light source." Whole article is on ABC science report which you can have sent to you each week if you like, being interested in all things I know nothing about I subscribe to it. Foot in mouth on radio in Sydney yesterday though bit of a laugh. :laugh:
  4. Hi All, My family and I are looking to migrate to Australia as soon as possible, I have passed my TRA Skills Assessment: Supervisor, Communications Tradespersons 4316-01 and my visa has been logged with DIAC, which I am waiting to be processed. I joined British Telecom (BT) in September 1986 as a trainee Telecommunications Engineer on a full time contract. On commencement of employment I was under the supervision of a Senior Engineer who was a fully qualified Telecommunications Technician. I attended college on a day release scheme for three years to gain the National Certificate of BTEC – ONC in Telecommunications Engineering, whilst also gaining on the job training. This enabled me to become a qualified Telecommunications Engineer (Communication Tradesperson). All this training was carried out under supervision and to BT’s strict Health and Safety and Quality standards. I have progressed through BT with promotions on the way, and I am always looking to improve myself for the benefit of the company and customers. My current position is that of, Wideband Planner (Planning the end to end delivery of data / communications over the Fibre Network), I have also worked within the Copper Network in the past. I am actively seeking employment in the Brisbane area, and trying to find a company, who would be willing to Sponsor me (I am prepared to pay for the sponsorship visa, if anyone would be willing to commit to the sponsorship), with a view of a permanent position, while my visa is working its way through the system. My brother and his family as well as my Mum and Dad are already residents of Australia near Cleveland, and we are looking to join them as soon as possible. I visited my brother and his family December 2009 and we are returning again this December 2010 returning home in January 2011, we really appreciated what Australia has to offer us. It has really made us even more determined to migrate. I am enquiring, if anyone knows of any employment vacancies in my line of work. Any help would be very much appreciated. Kind Regards.
