  1. Hi all, I'm new to poms in Oz and have been searching the forums to find a recent hairdresser thread. I have just sent off my skills assessment to Vetassess after a lot of work and stress getting it all together, feeling relieved now that it has gone but now worrying in case I have missed anything or haven't provided something very important! Any other hairdressers or tradies out there that are currently going through this? And does anyone know of current vetassess wait times and what is involved for a positive assessment and technical interview? Thanks in advance Vicki.

    Trade recognition?????

    Hi Everyone, My girlfriend and I are just waiting for our application to go through at the moment before heading out to join you all in Brisbane. We have been fortunate enough to have been offered sponsorship through her employers. I am a Security Systems Technician by trade and I would like to hear from anyone who has moved to Queensland with a trade. Did you find it difficult to transfer your qualifications over? I want to transfer my quals before we leave so I can start work as soon as possible. I am aware of the TRA approach, but as far as I understand this is only used if you are applying for migration using the trade skills. Am I wrong? I also know that I need to get a Queensland cable licence and Security checks (vetting), does your employer usually do this on your behalf or do you need to get it done before you even apply for a job? Any info is greatly appreciated :smile: Kind regards Jim

    Help with TRA....Please

    Hi all, thought i would introduce myself as I'm a newbie! :wideeyed: long time reader first time threader. My name's Dan, 32 (today!) time served as fabricator/welder (boilermaker) I Backpacked up & down the East Coast of Oz on a working visa in 2003 for a year and fell in love with the place and has always been a dream since to live there. Putting the wheels in motion now and I'm stumbling at the first hurdle, the dreaded TRA. Now, I have a rough idea of what is required to be put in but i have no idea how in-depth I need to be, how far back I start from etc, etc, Ive tried trawling the net to see if there is one that I could use as a format, obviously everyone is going to be different but there's nothing out there. If anyone can help at all I would be so greatful. Thanks for reading my first thread Dan
