  1. Hi Im a locksmith and am planning to move to Australia, I dont need a visa to get in as Im an Australian who was removed from there at the age of 10, and lived in the UK ever since. (When I was young none of the UK kids believed I was an Aussie, and last time I went to Aus they didn't believe I was an Aussie) Anyway Im 52 and wanted to know how I go about getting certification in my line of work and my wife is worried about me taking my haul of tools over there as they are illegal in most states unless your registered. Anyone know how I go about this? I wont have a problem getting in as I am getting my first Australian passport. Thanks in advance for any help or advice.

    Locksmith Qualifications

    Hi. I was hoping i could pick a few brains and get some advise. Im currently thinking of training to become a locksmith. And my ideal plan would to eventually work in Australia. I was wondering what qualifications you would need to eventually work in Oz? As i have read that some of the UK qualifications dont mean much in Oz. Could someone please help shed some light on this for me? Thanks Ted

    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?

    Hi Guys Hoping you can help.....me and my husband really want to move to australia but just dont qualify. Looking at the list Locksmith has been on there a while but as there is no formal qualification here in the UK I was wondering if anyone has emigrated to Oz on this skill and what the process was. I should mention that neither of us are locksmiths but happy to retrain....which raises the issue of experience? My husband is a retail manager with 5 years exp and I am an executive PA...they dont need us over in Oz!!! Any advise would be greatly appreicated! Sabrina

    Anyone passed TRA for locksmith?

    Hi, Just wondering if anyone has successfully passed TRA for locksmith and wouldn't mind emailing me a copy of what was sent so i have an idea of what i need to do. Many thanks Andy
  6. Hi everyone, My husband Paul is a locksmith, starting his career as an alumium & Pvc fabricator, he concentrated some years ago upon locksmithing to that end he now holds the 'Masters' qualification which is with the Master Locksmith Association, & trains constantly to develop skills with 'safe opening'. An agency recently told us that unless he held City & Guilds 1,2,3 he was wasting his time for Australia, which seems absolutely rediculous as this qualification is above all of those, has anyone had this problem & how was it overcome. buzzybee

    Locksmith - Help with visa pls!

    Hi PIO, Really need advice. My husband is a Locksmith and has been for 10 years, owning his own locksmith company for the last 6. We are trying to emigrate to perth, but for a skilled visa you need qualifications. Unfortunately there are no qualifications or exams for locksmiths. Tried contacting migrant agents, but even they are not sure what we can do. Any advice would be brilliant. Louise
  8. Hi, First post on here so hi, My wife and I are considering a move to Brisbane within the next 4 years, My wife is a qualified civil engineer so is on the demand list I am however looking to retrain as I do not have any formal qualifications, my options are a physiotherapist, tree surgeon or maybe even a locksmith though not sure on the oz qualifications of the latter. My enquiry is into whether there is anybody here that is employed within any of these professions and any suggestion on which of these routes would provide a better chance of employment. any help would be much appreciated
