  1. Hi All, Are there any electricians out there who have recently gained this certificate. I also understand that you have to do a practical test if so can you tell me what is involved for this test regards kelvino
  2. Hi everyone, We are still pulling all the paperwork together to submit to vetassess so we have got no chance of ever applying for the visa before the July deadline. Does anyone know how likely it would be for sparks (or any other trades for others out there who may be interested) to be invited once the tests etc have been completed and passed? My husband is nervous about spending all the money to do the vetassess test and then for us never to be invited!! :unsure:
  3. Im currently half way through my wireing regulations course with peer voc. to attain my electrical licence for oz, was just wondering if any other sparks out there that have done the course and could tell me a little about what to exspect during the practical testing and how strict they are with the workbook answers!! im nearly finished the workbook just tryn to clean up some bits that i wasnt to sure on! Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!!
  4. Hi, Can anyone offer any tips or advice on what needs to go in your paper based assessment for a spark? Thanks Lisa

  6. Hi there, I currently live in surrey and am in the 4th and final year of my electricial apprenticeship in the UK. I am really interested in moving to Australia since going travelling there a couple of years ago. I was wondering if anyone could outline to me what the process is from getting a VISA, and getting qualified as a Sparks in Aus and what costs and timescales are involved in this. I dont have any job lined up there or anything there. Cheers all, Louis
  7. I got a email from my immigration agent telling me about a electrical seminar on the 15th of may. I thought it would be a good idea to go due to the minefield of information flying about regarding electrical registration in oz Apprently the Australian goverments are wising up to the different ways of gaining registration in each state once in oz and are closing down the peer route ASAP and trying to stop short cuts. What the guys from Tradiesdownunder are trying to do is start a course so that the British Electricians can do their gap training here in the uk. A Tafe electrical Tutor will travel over from oz to complete the 7 week course and at the end, you will have completed the minimum context gap training and gain the Australian National recognised Health and Safety White Card All that is left to do once in Oz is complete your on job evidence which is done through E profiling and complete the capstone final exam. The guys are really keen to get this off the ground but they need bums on seats for it to be posible to bring over the Tafe tutor. This is a fantastic opporunity to get most of the required work down to gain full electrical regisitration For more information please pm me

    Sparks in Brisbane

    Hi All I arrived in QLD hoping to take my driving test quickly. I've always lived in London so been able to get loads of work without having to drive anywhere. Now it looks like I'll have to wait a year with a learners license before I can take the test. My question is, will the situation be the same in London ie will I be able to get plenty of work in and around the city and not need a car to get about to jobs? Cheers for any info. J
