  1. Hello all, I’m new to the forum so hello to start! I’m moving to Perth in May this year with my girlfriend who’s from Perth. Ive lived there previously for two years on WHV’s. I’m a tiler by trade and want to bring my main tools with me. A manual tile cutter, a dewalt combi drill with two lithium ion battery’s, a dewalt laser level with one lithium ion battery and two spirit levels. All items are in separate secure boxes/cases. What I’m wondering is, does anyone have any experience of shipping simular items and what company’s did people use? I also have about 2 or 3 large suitcases and two push bikes I’d like to ship over. I’m not being lazy I have searched the forum looking for information on this. I heard through the grape vine you cant ship drill battery’s for some reason so any information regarding this would be great. Thanks so much in advance : )

    License for tiling?

    Hi, cannot seem to find a clear answer any where. :arghh: I am a wall and floor tiler and I want to know if I am going to do tiling only, domestic and perhaps sub contract to bigger contractors as a self employed tiler, do I legally need a license? A builder does need one, but I am only a tiler....? I have found the following on the licensing authority's website, but that doesn't really answer my question: “Building work” includes a broad range of construction, trade and associated work. It includes demolition and site preparation work. Hope you clever folks can enlighten me. Cheers!
  7. Hello everyone, We are brand new to the forum and looking for advice... We are both 27 and just returned from OZ on a WHV and are desperate to get back. So we are looking to study in OZ as a pathway to staying permanently, we both are from a finance background (with is worthless now :-) but now want a real career. We have been looking at courses and initially thought that the Enrolled Nursing course at WA Tafe would be the best option ($12000 per year) and as it a career Nic is really to follow, however after further investigation it looks like sponsorship or any type of visa would not be available for an enrolled nurse (which effectively makes the course useless, as EN's don't exist in the NHS anymore so the qualification could not even be used back in the UK!) We cannot afford the degree course fees of $20000+ per year for 3 years... Has anyone done an enrolled nurse course? are there any opportunities once qualified? The other option is for me to do a Certificate III in Wall & Floor Tiling which is 2yrs at $14000 and is on the SOL. However it worries me that it is the kind of trade that may not be on the list in 2-3yrs time when I qualify? I would much prefer a plumbing course but I am not able to find a course with a decent provider.. Any thoughts on our situation or suggestions would be great! Thanks :biggrin:

  13. Hello all, My Girlfriend and I are coming to do some travelling in Australlia Next Summer. With The View to move out there. My Girlfriend is a Nurse so should find work very easily. However i have no trade at this time as have recently left the navy and am only doing taxi driving to tie me over. I am looking to get into either Plastering or Floor and wall Tiling. But really not sure which one to go for. I have heard that the plastering is completly different out there and is more like dry lining. It is Not that easy to do apprenticeships at home as the building industry has slowed down here. Would i be better off doing a course at home or waiting till i get out there and achieving an australlian qualification? Also i have seen completly different variations in pay scales ranging between $26k - $ 70k a year for tiling??? We are interested in moving to Perth WA. :jiggy: Any help would be appreciated. Many Thanks Simon Gallimore
