  1. OK folks my background. 47 years young, Four year Control and instrumentation apprenticeship with HNC qualification. 18 years offshore Oil and Gas experience the last eight in production operations with a level 3 NVQ and city and guilds in hydrocarbon operations. Valid hazardous areas certificate, Huet, medical etc for offshore work. Worked for one of the major Oil companies over the past eight years. My visa was granted for the following skills assessment General Electronic Instrument Tradesperson, (ASCO) 4314-11. Having gained the TRA and now done a lot of research it would appear almost impossible to work as a Instrument technician without the addition of a full electrical apprenticeship ! seems to be another one of those money making schemes that surrounds all electrical based disciplines entering Australia. Fortunately I have a production background to fall back on now or I’m possibly looking at chasing supervisor or engineering positions, or working Singapore etc which is not the reason I chose to migrate. I have read several of the posts from the Electricians looking at adding Instrumentation to their skills base but have any other tiffies gone along this route and what has been your experiences and outcomes? Our relocation will be completed 17th February 2010.
  2. Just had an offer on a house accepted and need to sell some UK quoted shares to release funds. I don't have a trading account set up and from what I can see, the usual people (Halifax etc.) need you to be UK resident to create one. We sold our house before we came over so don't have a UK address. Does anyone know how I can sell my shares from here? Can I just phone a UK number? The proceeds would be going into a UK account before onward transfer to Oz. This would be a one off trade. Thanks.
  3. Hi All Just had a letter today from our agents to say they have ceased trading They have sent us a form (956) to send off to ensure we get all correspondence sent to us. No information exactly where to send it to or what I need to do for the next stages (visa application has been lodged) I kind of feel like just giving up now, we have been gong through this for over 2 years, cant sell the house and have faced knock back after knock back. Ideally I would just like my money back and to restart my life here but dont think thats likely is it? Any advice anyone?

    Perth trading hours

    A deal has been made between state government and the opposition to allow stores toytade until 9pm on week nights and for some stores, electrical retailers were specifically mentioned toopen Sundays, I'm not sure if this allies to the whole of the metropolitan area or just certain precinicts as this came in a little while ago in Freo. It's bad news I think, Perth will end up like every other major city and lose the independence that makes it special. Jules
  5. Has anyone heard, or is there a thread I cannot find relating to the company *********** **** I have just found out that they have possibly gone bankrupt. We were in the process of applying for student visa plus family, which we put on hold due to house sale falling through. We have paid up front for all services here and in Oz after 2 years of study plus work experience. Our parents also paid up front for visas to join their son. We did pay by credit card. Not sure how to get info or start some proceedings. Thanks for any help
