melbournegirlinny posted a topic in Visa ChatIt seems that the Victorian Auditor-General is now launching an investigation into the government authority that regulates private colleges in Victoria. College collapses spark fresh probe
FEDERAL Education Minister Julia Gillard will press ahead with plans for a national vocational education regulator, despite the refusal of Victoria and Western Australia to sign over their powers. The Government will legislate next year to create the regulator, which will accredit colleges, including those offering courses for international students. Finally, though WA probably wants to retain control re. mining industry training etc., Victoria because they are incompetent in regulating dodgy colleges....
Hi everyone, I hope someone can help me on this trivial but important issue? We moved over from the UK in July this year with almost everything we own including our Gas Barbeque. We paid a fair price for it from B & Q and were reluctant to leave it behind, particularly considering the very little use it had in the UK! British BBQs use a regulator with an output of .37 mbar pressure and in the main use a clip on "Patio Gas" system. Australian gas BBQs use regulators producing .275 mbar max pressure and attach to gas bottles using an a POL or CGA 510 fitting. I went to a Gas Fitter and asked for a .37 mbar regulator with a POL fitting and was told that they don't exist! Furthermore, if I was to use an Australian regulator on my British BBQ it would not generate enough heat to cook on. All hearsay I know but I know enough about gas to know not to mess with it. Has anyone brought a British Barby over and got it to work with an Australian gas bottle?? We are coming into Summer here, so this is becoming more important everyday. Any guidance on this is greatly appreciated. Thanks Luckylu
