  1. Hello, I am hoping that someone here may be able to help or offer some insight. I am currently in the starting process of looking to move overseas, so naturally I’m trying to find details about the career I have over in Australia. It’s quite a niche role which makes thing difficult. I work for a natural gas distribution network. I maintain, repair and commission assets relating to this, from low pressure (75mbar) to high pressure (80bar). Equipment such as: gas pressure regulators, slam shut valves, actuated/ball/plug/gate valves, relief valves, pigging operations, natural gas bath heaters, corrosion inspection and reporting, pneumatic testing, cutting, threading and shaping small bore pipe work, etc… Trained in working at heights, confined spaces, hazardous zones, gas detection, asbestos awareness and handling, SCO, road signing, lighting and guarding, etc… I cannot for the life of me find this role in Australia, but I am sure it exists as it is essential to gas supply in all countries. This is making it difficult to find the particular category this job would fall under for a residency visa. One usual term is Gasfitter, but due to the nature of my job we do not have gas safe licensing as there is no need on such large, private sites. I have also looked at Plant Operator, but this doesn’t quite fit the mark. The link below provides further clarification and my role specifically is under the Pressure Management band. This is a level 3 apprenticeship qualification in England. https://www.instituteforapprenticeships.org/media/1789/energy___utilities_-_gas_network_craftsperson_01.pdf Even attending job fairs and speaking with agents comes up a little short as no one really grasps what I do. If anyone has gone over in the field or knows of anything that might help I would be greatly appreciative, Thanks,
  2. I am an ex British gas engineer I live in Melbourne and own my own heating service company. I am looking to employ a heating service person servicing and repairing gas central heating systems just like you would do in UK. Please if interested Jim

    Fibre Optic Specialists

    Hi. I have not used Pommes in Oz much, but I thought I would reach out to the Pommes in Oz Community. I am a recruiter (originally from the UK - so I know what it is like to move to the other side of the world), and thought that I would reach out, as I have a couple of roles for Fibre Optic Senior Splice and Test Technicians - to be based in Melbourne. A New Year start. If you, or you know of anyone emigrating to Australia in the near future, looking for work in this field, then please give them my details. I also have 2 opportunities for trainees in this field, so if you know someone that is looking for a career change or with 2/3 years of electrical apprenticeship experience, again - please give them my details. Unfortunately sponsorship is NOT being offered. jo.buckler@rightreferences.com. Thanks. Jo

  7. Hi, Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated. I am an Alarm engineer with over 10 yrs experience (but no qualifications) and would love to move to Oz, I have spoken with a couple of migration agency's who say this occupation is not on the list and I could only get in through employer sponsorship. I would like to know if there is anyone with the same occupation who has been through this and what route you took? Looking at the SOL there are occupations listed such as Electronic instrument trades person which when you read the description, it does describe what I do, are the migration agency's right and I am trying to find something that really isn't there? Or are they just taking easy applications as suggested to us by some friends we met in Oz? If you moved through employer sponsorship, how easy or hard was it to find a job and how long did it take from getting a job offer to moving? Thanks in advance for any advice.
  8. Hi everyone, this is my first post, hoping someone out there might be able to offer support and advice. After our second trip to Australia over Christmas my husband and I are now ready to make the move using his skilled trade as a motor technician/mechanic. We have signed on with an agency and have been advised that the quickest way would be down the route of a 457 sponsorship visa. Has anyone else had a similar experience? If so how long did everything take? From signing onto an agency to flying out? We have said we are open to most areas but are slightly restricted as my husband would like to stay with the same brand of car (Audi) he has worked on for the past ten years because he feels more comfortable but is open to sister brands like VW. Unfortunately time isn't on our side as my husband is now in his mid 40's but we don't regret waiting as we both wanted to make sure the move was right for both of us and have been able to and enjoyed trying and testing a number of areas. We are a little worried though about the visa process and not being educated on the process we are unsure what to expect. Is there a chance we may not get in? or does that not normally happen if you secure a contact with a company out there? If anyone can offer advice from a similar experience it would be appreciated, you don't want to get your hopes up too much but after deciding to go for it, at this point if anything went wrong we would be devastated.

  10. Hello all, New to the website but seems very helpful thus far. I'm a REME technician in the army (class 1) and planning the great escape to Australia with my aussie girlfriend on a defacto visa after serving my 1 year termination period. Wanting to stay in trade I was hoping for some solid information and the immigration website doesn't clarify much. I have a NVQ level 3 in electronic engineering amongst other trade related qualifications. Is there a course or exam i can do to get my qualifications and experience recognised by australian employers while in the U.K? perhaps a guild of some variety i can join in the U.K that is recognised internationally? I have read about a skilled worker exam to do during the visa application but I'm not sure if that is for skilled worker visa applicants only. Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated. Especially any ex army who knows about the resettlement side of army termination and what courses etc would help. Many Thanks

  14. I am really tired of searching here and there to find the required information for being assessed as a simple (!) Electrical Engineering Technician (312312). So I decided to create a cozy thread only for we electrical technicians to share our experiences with other colleagues. Please bear in mind that share, share and again share whatever you know as the smallest piece of information may make the life far more easier for someone else. Of course you can ask whatever you wish, but try not to be overload ;-)

    TRA vs Electrical Technician

    First of all this is a brief of my situation: 1999: Diploma (Electrical/Vocational Qualification) 2002: Associate Diploma (Electrical Engineering) 2005: Start working as electrical technician in a company 2010: Bachelor of Science (Electrical Engineering(without leaving my job)) Now I am going to send my documents to TRA to be recognized as Electrical Engineering Technician (312312). My questions are: Does it matter for TRA from which university I have achieved my associate degree? (it does for Engineers Australia) Do I need on-job-training or something like that? Is it helpful to send my BS degree OR it is better to not mention it at all? Thank you
  16. I worked as an electrical technician for 5 years and got my BS degree after that and ever since I've been working as an electrical engineer. but I've recently been assessed by Engineers Australia as "Engineering Technologist", because they believe my BS degree is comparable to the educational level of the AQF Associate Degree and also my Associate Degree is comparable to the educational level of the AQF Certificate 4. Anyway, for three reasons I'm going to apply for visa 189 as an electrician rather than a technologist or a technician: It's highly in demand according to Skillselect Occupation Ceiling much more than a technologist or technician. This way I can claim for 7 years of work experience rather that 2 years (since it's been 2 years from the time when I got my BS degree which is now considered as Associate Degree). electrician could be found on Occupation List of ALL states and territories which is not the case for technologists and technicians. I mean I could find state sponsorship much easily. My questions: Is it possible for TRA to refuse to recognize me as an electrician just because I'm holding a bachelor degree or what I've done does not match the job description of an electrician or whatever. Does applying for a permanent visa (189) as an electrician means that I will never find a job as a technologist/technician in Australia. Please note that I've been already assessed as technologist by Engineers Australia. Thank you
  17. Hello, im new to this website, and wondered if any one can help me, im an operating Department practitioner (ODP) known as an Anaesthetic Technician in oz. We are hoping to emigrate soon, and im trying to get registered with ASAPO this is the registration body for aus, before i can practice over in aus, woulkd like to know if anybody has any ideas of how how long it takes for the registration to come thru? thanks karen
  18. Well, I've looked at the SMPs, and I've utterly upset for the simple reason that Telecomm Network Engineers have fewer possibilities to move to AU than tradespersons such as Telecomm Technicians. I'm the Telecommunications Network Engineer with more than 7yr experience, however I haven't been assessed yet and no IELTS as well, so I'm just trying to decide for myself, which kind of assessment I have to choose. Let's consider a Telecomm Egineer opportunity, who is represented in two positions in SOL3. These are: 263311 Telecommunications Engineer 263312 Telecommunications Network Engineer Now let's consider the SMPs: in WA SMP (IELTS 7777, 7 year exp) - but there is ONLY 263311 in SA (20k$ cash) - only 263312 I remember ACT SMP has 26331x position, but there are some insane cash requirements also. An engineer must be assessed with the IEA, have an IELTS 6666, and be ready to pay about AUD$500. As well the assessment will take about 5 months. After that the engineer will get just one ANZSCO code. It's very sad. Then let's consider to the opportunity 342414 TELECOMMUNICATIONS TECHNICIAN, who is just simple tradesperson. You can look at duties here: 1220.0 - ANZSCO - Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations, First Edition, Revision 1 I suppose, any professional telecomm engineer knows how to work with cables and with telecomm equipment, so i presume that any one able to be assessed as a tradesperson. Furthermore, lets look at the telecomm technician possibilities and requirements: WA (IELTS 6666, 5 yr exp) VIC (5 yr exp) Telecomm technician has to be assessed in TRA, the assessment will cost about $300, and it will take 1 month. Feel the difference. Well, now is the question. I have a bachelor degree, and I was qualified as 'Physicist'. After qualification I've been working for different telecommunications companies, so my summary experience is more than 7 years as Telecommunications Network Engineer. However, i see that a technician has more possibilities to move out to AU than an engineer, therefore the question is how to be assessed in TRA ? Has anybody an experience with TRA assessment ? May be have you another thoughts? Don't hesitate, and just drop line here. p.s. All of this is relating to the new points test. I don't make delusions to my ability to pass an IELTS more than 6666 or somthing else

    Chemist vs Chemistry Technician

    Hi, I would like to apply for a 176 visa. Initially, I consider nominating Chemist as my occupation since I have a bachelor's degree in Chemistry. I have 5 years experience working in the laboratory. But when I look up the ANZSCO description for this occupation it seemed to me that they put more emphasis on research work for chemists. My laboratory experience is mostly in quality control and testing. I have read that it is important that your professional experience must be spot-on the ANZSCO description. Is this really true? If so, should I put Chemistry Technician instead which focuses more on quality control testing? Chemist is in SOL Sched 1 while Chem Tech is only in SOL Sched 2 which requires state sponsorship. And I will probably have to apply WA SS since they are the only one who have Chem Tech on their demand list. I hope someone can advise me on this.:biggrin:
