    Gas Fitters Watch Out!!!!

    Having planned with my family to start a new life in Australia our plans came to a crunching hault. Even though as a gas fitter you earn the points to qualify for a Visa, dont begin to get excited. The Australian Visa Bureau contacted me yesterday and explained the following...... Even though i have a City & Guilds NVQ Level 2 in Gas Installation & Maintenance and i am Gas Safe Registered with experience. Because i didnt do an apprentership with a company i do not qualify. What is that all about? When i did my NVQ i had to work with a company to train and gather evidence for a portfolio. Surely that is the same thing ??? Unbelievable!!! As you can imagine i am annoyed at the whole process and i think it is plain silly to prevent Gas Fitters moving to Oz because they had no apprentership. I am not even aware you can even get a gas apprentership these days? Maybe with British Gas but These days people who want to better themselves get off their backside and pay for and go to college themselves. If Anyone has faced the same troubles as i just have please let me no because apparently the Visa bureau have this problem with Gas Fitters all the time. So they tell me. :mad:

    Fitters Thread 175

    Since the change on July 1st I have been on here desperately looking for information regarding how long we may have to wait for our visa’s. I know a lot of fitters jumped ship and headed off on the 176 route and I have no doubt that many of them will now have visas and maybe “livin the dream”.:arghh: So for us that are left thought it would be good to start a thread so we can share information and stuff on time scales or advice agents may have given you. My agent has not said anything at all and his office is closed now for over a week so I have no chance of speaking to him Hope you all join in and we can help each other out:hug:
