  1. Hi 43 years old from England, UK. I've been a plasterer for over 20 years now. does anyone know if there are any opportunities for solid wall plastering in OZ or NZ? I have a young family and want to try and make a better life for us. like other workers here I feel like there's too much stress here. Thank you for your help.
  2. Hi there, I have just returned from a week in Perth where I have completed the AQF 111 Solid Plastering. I did the course with Silver Trowel in Perth and I would definitely reccommend them to anyone thinking of doing it. It actually worked out cheaper to fly over and do the course in Perth than to do it here in the UK. Plastering in Australia is very different to here in the UK and if anyone is planning to do the course and would like any information about it then feel free to get in touch. Wal

    AQF 111 Solid Plastering!!

    Hi, I found a post about the above from walthepasterer from a year ago but my attempts to follow up have not been successful. It's to do with a course in Solid Plastering at the Silver Trowel in Perth and I'm keen to know how valuable this course is viewed in the UK, if the experience will help my son apply for imigration in Aus and if there are any problems doing this course on a tourist visa? He's in Perth at the moment, will probably be coming home at the end of January but really wants to stay in Aus permanently. He's done plaserting in Perth, the course may help him with visa points etc.. Anyone know? Kymosabi
  4. hi all When and if we get to oz, would there be any issues regarding shipping cane and solid wood furniture, any advice? we would be grateful for all your comments, oh thinks we should sell items before moving. I'm not , :arghh:

  6. hi everyone , i wanted to ask a question on solid plastering and getting a 175 visa ,any advice would be appreciated .here goes ...... i have a city and guilds and an nvq 2 in solid plastering and believe i will need to get an AQF111 in order to get assessed with TRA ,can anybody tell me what is involved in getting the AQF 111 ? Also i am currently working as a trowel man for a spray applied concrete company as we all know the plastering and building trade is dead, do you think this will be classed as experience with the AQF/TRA as it is still a trowel occupation ? I believe the AQF assessers do site visits will this be suitable or do you think they will want to see me actually skimming /rendering? any advice from plasterers who have been through the process would be great .
  7. Hi All Just wanted to know has anyone done the AQF111 for solid Plastering. I'm doing an assessment which lasts a day. It's being carried out by some aussie training agency here in Ireland. Just wanted to know has anyone done this assessment and what exactly does it involve. any help or info much appreciated Cheers barry
  8. Hi all I am going to Mackay Queensland with my wife and baby in March for 3 months to stay with family. I have worked as a plasterer for 2 years but I don't have any formal qualifications. Does anyone know if I can I do AQFIII solid plastering while on holiday in Mackay? If so will this benefit me if I apply for a permanent visa? Kind regards gyrfalcon
  9. Sorry, put comments into wrong thread - meant to be migration issues!
  10. Hi there, I am planning to fly over to Perth to do the AQF 111 qualification in Solid Plastering in the next couple of weeks. Can anyone confirm that I can do this on the 3 month tourist visa? My understanding of the 3 month ETA is that you cannot engage in studies or training for longer than 3 months, as the course I will be doing is only 2 days long I pressume this will be fine but I don't want to fly over to then be told I can't do the course because I am on the wrong visa. I would really appreciate if someone could advise on this one!! Also, has anybody else done the AQF 111 solid plastering and how did you find it?
