  1. Hi all Noticed there have been a lot of posts on here recently needing info on skills/training to pass TRA assessment so thought l'd post this info for everyone. The wording is exactly as it is shown on the TRA pages so good luck to everyone. http://www.workplace.gov.au/NR/rdonl...ia4Oct2006.pdf If it doesnt work the basis is:- Skill Pathway A: Formal Apprenticeship Minimum Employment - 4 yrs Training Requirement - 900 hrs formal training (incl of employment) Specific Requirements - Regulated Apprenticeship Skill Pathway B: Informal Apprenticeship Minimum Employment - 5 yrs Training Requirement - 900 hrs formal training (incl of employment) Specific Requirement - none Skill Pathway C - Vocational Traineeship Mimimum Employment - 5 yrs Training Requirement - 1800 hrs formal training (incl of employment) Specific Requirement - Recognised Traineeship Skill Pathway D - Work Experience Mimimum Employment - 6/7 years* Training Requirement - Verifiable skill level transition process Specific Requirement - None Skill Pathway E - Australian Qualification Minimum Employment - 900 hrs** or 4 yrs*** Training Requirement - CRICOS AQF III Specific Requirement - Acceptable Workplace assessment * 7 years for electrical trades ** For Australian trained applicants ***For AQF holders who have undergone acceptable workplace assessment If anyone cant use the link and wants specific info on a particular pathway l will type that out but as there was 9 pages of it l thought better for now :wacko: Lyn
  2. Hi all Just wandering if anyone can help me, give me any info on how the TRA Skill Pathways work in relation to my occupation and circumstances. I've emailed the TRA and they sent me reply listing several pathways, now i've read through and only two seem relevant but i'm not sure which would be the best option for me to take.. I'm 30 and have been an Auto Electrcian for 6 years in July, including my training, initially i took the job on just to repair vehicle starters and alternators as a temporary job whilst trying to get back in training in joinery. However, the company let me progress and since then i've become fully qualified upto NVQ Level 3 as an auto electrician. All my training as been work based, hands on pratical training with another employee talking me through various areas, so no formal (classwork) training. The NVQ's are basically a record of me proving i'm competent at my job (portoflio) with observation by an assesor and online computer tests. The only formal traing i've had is back in 1995 - 1997, a 2 year full time course in Automobile Engineering at BTEC level which was well over 900 hrs of formal training. I gained a Certificate of Achivement, good grades but missed out on 2 units which i never completed due to work. The pathways i reckon to be options are:- Skill Pathway B – 5 year Informal Apprenticeship: The applicant must clearly demonstrate: evidence of employment as an apprentice a minimum of 900 hours formal training (which must be undertaken within 2 years of the employment). If the BTEC course in 1995-97 is relevant - 6 years before employment? combined, the apprenticeship and formal training must total no less than 5 years in the occupation applied for. or Skill Pathway E – Australian Qualification: The applicant must demonstrate: evidence of completion of an AQF Certificate III and 900 hours directly related work experience or 4 years if the qualification was awarded on the basis of a workplace assessment. This work experience must be completed outside the training requirements. but not sure whats the best way forward, do i try my luck at B and hope that the formal traing at college 12 years ago is acceptable, or can i have my qualifications recognised as AQF Cert III. How would i go about this and could anyone help me please? Thanks Paul

    Pathways to PR

    Hi all, I have been in contact with some agents and I do qualify for a sponsored regional provisional visa (475). Now my question is what are the available pathways to permanent residency? According to the DIAC website, those in Australia on 475 visa can apply for a permanent visa (887) after having "lived for two (2) years in a Specified Regional Area and worked, including being self-employed, for one (1) year in these same areas". 887 Eligibility What criteria would I have to meet in order to be able to apply for PR? Would I have to re-submit all the documentation as for my temporary visa (vetasses etc) or just provide proof of residency and employment? Is it points based or just assessing that you have complied with your current visa and met these two basic criterias? Now, on the DIAC website it does not specify that this one years work experience needs to be on a SOL occupation. Although it does specify this implicitly on the requirements page for the 475 visa. I would not have thought that they would have omitted this if it was a requirement. Does anyone have any information on applying for PR after having lived in a regional area under a temporary sponsored visa? If it specific the the region, I will be applying for a 475 visa sponsored by SA. I did ask my agent (I haven't appointed them yet) and they where not sure as for this type of visa, as it is done within Australia and could not give me an answer. I was going to email a few agents in Australia to see if they could provide me with some information. I don't want to apply for a 475, move all the way there only to find 2 years down the line that I still do not meet specific criteria for PR and have to come back! Thanks for reading.

    Could somebody in the know explain to me the different pathways - A, B, C & E? This is just for interest as I like to know the ins n outs of everything! But have heard people talking and have no idea what they all are!:unsure: I am a Podiatrist applying for the skilled independent 175 visa.
