    Metal fabricator

    Hey everyone, Does anybody have any information re the TRA technical interview via skype on being a METAL FABRICATOR????? Many thanks!
  9. Hi all, we have started the 176 state sponsorship visa. We have appointed an agent but are struggling with the AQF, as I don't get the impression that they fully understand my husbands job. My husband is a CNC Setter/Operator which is Austrailia is classed as a Metal Machinist (First Class). We have sent the initial AQF application off but now have to complete the stage 2 application form, but the agents keep sending us Metal Fabricators/Mechanical Engineer form which we have to complete and then get a score of points based on equipment he has used. The problem we have is that the machinery listed is all to do with Fabricators and welding and not relevant to my husbands job which is working with spindles, lathes, milling etc. I have spoken to our agent and they have said that there is only one form but I find this really hard to believe as we cannot gain points based on a job he doesn't do. Can anyone offer any advice please, or if you are a metal machinist (First Class) and have had to complete the AQF could you please let us know if this is correct that you have to complete this Fabricators application form? Please any help or advice would be mostly appreciated as we are on such a tight deadline as we have been told come the 1 July the chances are we won't be able to lodge our visa as we won't be eligble so we are desparetly trying to get it done asap. Thanks Natasha

  16. Hi my partner has been working in engine reconditioning and engine building for 10 years, we are looking at going onto a 175 under the title metal machinist, he doesnt have an nvq III, however i believe he can get an AQF III, while we are here in Oz. He can get the AQF III under the title automotive specialist which falls under metal machinisit. I wondered if any one has done it this way around and how much it cost to get the AQF III as he wont be doing a course, it will just be like and RPL. Does anyone know about the tra aswell and how much getting the skills assessed once he has the AQF III is? also do u have any idea what they will ask? We are both currently on WHVs as he was made redundant on a 457 twice and we feel getting the 175 will be the best option for the security. Also once the visa application is in, does any one have a rough idea of how long until its granted. Any help or info would be great as we seem to b going round in circles. Thanx :arghh:
