  4. Hi, Can anyone help in providing information on the licensing requirements for painters and decorators to work in NSW (over and above the requirements for visas)? I am trying to find out exactly what licensing is needed to actually start work in NSW as a painter and decorator, and how to go about getting this. I have found a lot of information on TRA certificates, etc. for visas, but after doing some research, I know that a trading certificate/ license and blue card will also be required to actually start work. Does anyone have experience of this and could tell me more, or could refer me on to someone/ somewhere for help? Most websites also refer to the Australian qualification of BCG30603 Certificate III in Painting and Decorating being required in order to get a trading license for NSW. Is a TRA certificate be acceptable instead of the BCG30603 Certificate when it comes to getting the trading license? Any information would be appreciated - it's all v confusing! Thanks
  5. good morning my fellow poms, i have just registered on this site in the hope of obtaining some helpful information regarding employment sponsorship and whether it is enough for me to obtain temporary residence and eventually permanent residence: I'm currently working in christchurch as a painter and decorator fixing all these shaken homes. I've been working for the same employer for about 6 months now and have been offered 'sponsorship' by that employer.......by that i mean he says he is willing to offer ( and put this in writing for immigration purposes) me continuous employment if i can legally work in NZ. I'm currently on a 1 year IEP work visa which will expire in October. The occupation in question isn't on the long term shortage skills or the immediate shortage skills list, neither is it on the recently introduced canterbury shortage skills list. It is however on the ANSCO ( skilled occupation list ) however to qualify for this i may need to have trade papers ( which i don't have ) of some kind, but i'm unsure of this. I completed a dummy run of the Skilled Migrant Category Points Indicator and my score was 135 points which apparently qualifies me to submit an expression of interest to the immigration bureau.....however: A big chunk of this 135 total (50 to be precise) came from my qualification, i have a HND in graphic design which incidentally is identified as an occupation of future growth in NZ. I'm unsure as whether or not the employment offer I have has to relate to the qualification or not?........obviously a qualification in graphic design is unrelated to a job offer as a painter and decorator. Also i didn't gain any points from experience as a painter and decorator as i can't prove any, other than experience gained with my current employer ( which doesn't count for anything as it's only 6 months).....so the 50 points for my qualification is the deal breaker.....without this i'd drop below the 100 requirement mark. So that is my situation, does anyone know if i'd be successful with my expression of interest?......i'd be grateful to anyone who has any sound knowledge of my dilemma. Thanks in advance
  6. Hi folks, we are currently waiting assessment with TRA for my trade. I'm a fully qualified painter+decorater and drywall finisher or gyprocker as its known in oz and I've been in the trade nearly 20years. I am applying for government sponsored skilled migrant 176 visa and heading to Perth. Reading job descriptions for my trade it states you need a blue or white card, how do I get that? Will the TRA assessment provide it or do I need to sit a test to get one? I'm sure I read on this site that you have to reapply to prove ur trade once you get to oz as the TRA is just for immigration purposes. Some jobs also indicate that you must have the right to live+work in oz to be able to apply, once I get my visa successfully issued can I then apply for jobs while still in UK prior to our move? Any info greatly appreciated. Dave

  8. Hi, I'm 34, single and in the U.K and unskilled. I visited friends in Victoria this year and fell in love with the place (although my Aussie obsession goes back for a good few years) Having been recently been made redundant this year (for about the third time) I'm at that point where I'm considering my options in regard to what I want to do with the next 5 years of my life, career wise. I've had a serious think about what I could possibly retrain in and have come up with Painter/Decorator. At the moment it is on the SOL list, but I believe it has been flagged so may not be included in the future. Do some skills drop off the list only to resurface a few years down the line? My thinking is, if I retrain, at the very least I will end up with better career prospects, and give myself a small chance of one day making it to Oz. What I was hoping to find out is the minimum level of work experience and minimum skills level (i.e what level of NVQ would I need) to possibly obtain a visa? Having postulated that I have 12 months work experience and a sponsorship by the regional govt - I passed the 475 State Sponsored Visa with 65 points but failed the 175 & 176 Visa Would that be realistic, or is it hard to obtain sponsorship by the state govt? I know this is very much like putting the cart before the horse, and probably quite laughable in many respects...but I would greatly appreciate any feedback in regards to this post. Thanks

    Painter & Decorator

    Hi all, My husband is a self employed (12yrs) painter and decorator, trained by his dad but has no formal qualifcations. We have permanant residency and are going to Perth, but are worried that he won't be able to be employed as a painter and decorator when we move. He can provide customer references but don't think this will be enough, i suppose as always i'm after the PIO speciality advice .:wubclub: Much appreciated Nik x

    Spray painter and VETASSESS

    Hi all, We are a young family hoping to move to Oz, we are using an agent who is dealing with everything. My oh is 32 and been in the car body repair business for 16 years as a paint sprayer, I am a beauty specialist and we have 2 children 2 and 4. We submitted my oh application to VETASSESS at the end Feb, we were told by our migration agent that they would receive the documents after 5 days or so and then take the payment 5-7 days after that. Well we are still waiting and are trying to keep the money in our account (you know how it is!) Has anyone else had experience with VETASSESS? We have to wait for them to approve our documents before my oh can take his practical exam, we need this test done before July because of the possible changes that may take place! Also my oh is taking his IELTS test on Saturday and is DREADING it to say the least, he has been holding a spray gun for the last 16 years not a pen! Its seems all very confusing because we cant seem to figure out whether he needs to get a 7 or a 6 in the IELTS exam. We attended the Australian expo in London yesterday and spoke to a few people who said he only needs a 6 as he holds a british passport?? Basically my brain is fried and feel MEGA stressed out with all the worry about paperwork, timelines, where to live in Oz etc...... Any advice or anyone having a similar experience we'd love to hear from you!
