    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.

      skill assessment

      hi guys, have anyone done their skill assessment by vettassess?? is vettassess officer really call the employer for refference check? and what they ask for. Im gonna do my restaurant manager experience assessment.
    3. When i started my career i had only 12 Grade College Certificate. I am a self-taught guy and I have 15 Years of experience in Application Development, and I recently completed my “Associate Degree in Web Design and Development” which is equivalent to AQF Diploma 10 points, my confusion is if I go with RPL route with “No Tertiary Education” am I going to get 10 points for my post experience Education which I completed recently? Because if i am not eligible to claim my recently awarded degree points than in that case my points will drop down to 65 which are not sufficient i guess. I have read in other posts that people who got their degrees prior to their professional experience but insufficient relevant content they went for a points test advice from Vetassess, and they claimed their education points. But my case is different because i recently completed my degree. Please advise
    4. I was just wondering if anyone had a timeframe to get a date for a technical interview? Made payment on 06/02/18, so been waiting nearly 4 weeks on a date for the interview, anyone else in the same situation?
    5. Hi there, I am very disappointed by the negative outcome. Did anyone here got their negative outcome and got positive from re-assessment? Please help. My question is: what is the best way to position this in the reassessment application? I'm afraid it would seem fishy if I provide another job description that goes into further details of the required tasks. I actually have a solid argument as I actually perform most of the tasks that ANZSCO required. I'm just not sure what's the best way to approach this. what are the additional documents that strong enough to support?
    6. 1) My first query is that I want to apply for VETASSESS skill assessment for Job Code 149212 - Customer Service Manager for sub-class 489 Visa but unable to get roles and responsibilities letter from my employer. If I get statutory declaration written by my supervisor that is notarized from India, do I need to get it for all designations that I hold in the company since joining or only the latest one? For ex- I joined as Domain Expert Trainee and promoted to Assistant Manager (which is my current designation) after 2 years of joining. So should the Stat Dec include only Assistant Manager roles and responsibilities or both Domain Expert and Assistant Manager. If both, then should it be on one letter itself or two different letters? Also, Should the declaration include duration/tenure for both the designations? 2) My second query is that I used to work for a bank in London, UK which I have left about 5 years ago. I tried contacting bank's HR department for the roles and responsibilities letter but they denied stating they don't have any such letter to be issued as per their policy. Now, I am back in India with no contact with my supervisor or any colleagues. I do have supporting documents such as e-mail confirmation by HR that they don't provide any such letter, my appointment letter, pay slips, experience letter, relieving letter, tax statement etc. In such a scenario, should an affidavit with a self written statutory declaration about my roles and responsibilities be accepted by Vetassess? Please suggest
    7. Hi, I have a question about the company reference letter for skill assessment. My situation is my offical job duties from HR will not exactly match with ANCSCO, so I request HR not to include the job description in the letter (but all others information that VET require are included) and I will ask my direct supervisor to sign another letter regarding my job duties on it, heres my questions: 1) Do I need to write this letter in statutory declaration format or just another company reference letter signed by my supervisor? 2) Do I need to give reason to VET about why my job duties did not included in the reference letter by HR? 3) I working in the same company for over 10 years but my direct supervisor now I am working with is only 2 years, is it a problem to recognise my past experience by him? Thank yo so much for the help and I will be very appreciated if anyone could give me an advise to solve this problem.
    8. Hi All, I'm applying for a 189 PR visa as a chef. Got my technical interview coming up on the 9th May and am terrified! I know my stuff but am AWFUL at interview type situations and am worried i'm just going to clam up and struggle with it. For the ILETS test at least there are samples online, but for the technical interview I can't find anything at all. Does anyone have any experience of this they'd care to share? Just what sort of areas are covered, what they ask, the format of the interview etc? Is it recipe stuff, eg how to bake a loaf of bread,or more the admin/healthand safety/staffing side of it? I know it's 2-3 hours and that's about it! Thanks to anyone who can shed any light at all!
    9. Hi all, OK first post... hopefully someone can help me out and maybe put my mind at rest (or not). Im a mechanic, 28, with qualifications and experience (NVQ LV3), i gained my qualifications 7 years ago. Im applying for permanent residency soon and my main concern is with the vetassess interview via video call, i would really like to hear from people that have experienced this part of the process. I know myself i'm capable of doing my job but with it being years ago that i was last trained, and often rarely encountering some of the aspects of what i was originally trained in day-to-day, i'm worried what they will ask me and whether i will have the correct answers for them to pass! I am worried mainly about questions on testing electronics, auto gearboxes... areas that i haven't had much to do with, things that i know i could repair but still i'm worried about answering questions on them. i have read a couple of threads on a similar topic but the only answers i came across was people saying 'don't worry, its not actually that bad'........... i'm still worrying! lol I guess i would love to hear from someone who has done the interview as part of there process and to explain what it was like in a bit more detail... Is it hard?! What sort of questions would they ask? How in-depth do they expect you to go? How would they ask them? Is it more of a conversation than a test? How long dose it take? How would you recommend i prepare? Im not trying to worry too much but it just feels to me like this would be the deal breaker of the whole application! :arghh: If anyone feels like they could help me out, it would be much appreciated! Thanks, Mark
    10. Dear All, Any idea on under which skill of SOL for Australian PR does experince in Pharmacovigilance/Drug Safety could fall under ??? #pharmocovigilance # drug Safety.
    11. Hi, My partner and I would really appreciate any help with skilled visas for Plumbers. I have so many questions and I keep getting told different things. We're wanting to go down the route of skilled migration as a Plumber in Australia. We have both lived in Australia previously for 4 years (I was sponsored) but left due to family reason back at home in the UK. So, my partner has a NVQ level 2 in plumbing (Not a level 3). Do you know if NVQ level 2 is enough of a qualification for a Plumber? He has over 5 years plumbing experience in the UK, and 2 years plumbing experience in Australia. We've been advised that to pass VETASSESS you need to have either Gas or Roofing experience. However, he doesn’t have much experience working with gas and no experience in roofing. My partner is currently completing a Gas course to get the knowledge, would this be enough for VETASSESS? Please can you give us some information about how hard or easy the test was for you. Any tips, advice or guidance would be great. Thank you in advance for your help. Jeanette
    12. Hi all, I am currently trying to send my evidence and documents over to vetassess for the first part of my skill select. I currently have the evidence set up in a PowerPoint presentation... Is this the way any of you would recommend or is there another way someone could suggest??? is the uploading prices of the documents and evidence simple?? Thanks in advance.
    13. I have a qualification as Civil Engineer Technician from 2000. I worked in this field in 2001 for 6 months, then changed career and got a bachelor degree in 2005. From 2004 to 2016 I worked most of the time in business related subjects (only one year - 2010 - in construction) and from 2017 (one year so far) again as Civil Engineer Technician. Going by what I found in VETASSESS documents, Civil Engineer Technician is in group C, so "Qualification(s) assessed at least AQF Diploma level with a highly relevant field of study and at least one year of post-qualification highly relevant employment at an appropriate skill level completed in the last five years". So it seems that I can be assessed positively. But I am not sure how VETASSESS will see this period of 16 years in a different field. Is it possible that they will disregard my degree? If anyone has seen some similar case, please comment. Thanks.

      Mechanical engineer

      Hello everyone, Did anyone in the group get an assessment done through engineers Australia recently. I work as a safety engineer and graduated as a mechanical engineer. My first assessment with vetassess came back negative, as I did not have any OH&S certification. Thanks
    15. Hi All Is it possilbe to pass a carpenter vetassess on experience alone? A little background: My brother is 41 and has worked as a carpentry for 20 years, though he has no formal qualification, he did complete a 4 year apprenticeship but struggles with ADHD and was unable to pass the final written exams. Cheers
    16. Hi I used this forum lots to prepare me for my practical assessment. Havin passed I thought it would try and pass on some info. There are 4 parts to the day 1) Electrical Installation 2) Written exam 3) Safe isolation/disconnect - reconnect 4) DOL motor control circuit 1) The first part is defo the easiest, just like a shortened version of the AM2. My tip is to look at the drawing and draw the installation on the board first, using the correct measurements. You will be required to test your installation afterwards and fill out a test sheet. 2) The written exam can be difficult, it's all about trying to remember what you did back at college. here are some example questions: - a coil of wire exhibits self inductance. Inductance is measured in ? - the peak value of a sine wave with a rms value of 7.07 volts AC is ? - a lagging power factor indicates that the circuit is ? - Two 1.7 kw heating elements connected in parallel to a 230v supply will draw a current of ? - Two inductors with inductive reactance of 0.20 ohms and 0.52 ohms are connected series. The total inductive reactance is ? these questions are all multiple guess but I don't remember what the 4 options were. 3) disconnect/reconnect (safe isolation) is probably the most difficult part of the day, just because that its process that everything has to be done in order. If its not you will lose points or could fail it instantly. 4) DOL...you only need to concentrate on the control side of the circuit. The motor is already connected and just requires you to make the links between the certain connections. You also have to connect a remote stop/start. There is basically a board fitted with all the components and using a pre made male lead, connect each end into the female plugs on the board. Just work through the system methodically and you will be fine. At the end you will have to walk away whilst the assessor puts a fault on the circuit, then return and find and correct the fault. In some instances it may be easy to just pull all the cables out and start again (if you struggling to find the fault). After this you will be required to draw the control circuit that you have just wired using the symbols that are one the sheet. Im not going to lie, it's a very intense day. The assessors are not wanting you to fail but they obviously can spot a blagger. I was fortunate enough to pass first time but appreciated the help massively from sites like this. best of luck
    17. I am Mahmud from Bangladesh. I have been working in a company since 15 May.2012. I want to assess my qualifications and professional experience from Vetassess. but when I am collecting documents such as job statement from My company they strictly inform that they are unable to give such documents. they only give me my job descriptions which includes my task and duties in general word and very short descriptions. In this situations how can I get statutory declaration or affidavit with my appointment letter, job descriptions and letter of introduction from accounts and finance department? is statutory declaration made from Notary public from my country(Bangladesh) or Australian Embassy situated in Bangladesh. I seek kind information from experts.
    18. Hi, I have techincal interview with vetassess coming soon for Asian cookery. I have searched virtually everywhere on the internet and have not found anything relevant. Can someone please advice about the kind of questions they ask? Any help will be appreciated.
    19. Hello everyone i am currently in the proccess of applying for skilled visa (189/ 190- depending on IELTS score) i am an installer of Home audio video (home theatre systems) and smart homes for the past 12 years - my immigration agent told me that since i do not have a certificate that is recognized by australian government i need to have a skills assessment interview at the UK before applying for the visa. my question is: As i can understand - electronic equipment trades consist of a variety of proffesions such as alarm techniciens / electronic repair techniciens and computer techniciens. which are quiet different from my daily job. in this assessment interview will i be asked about my specific field of expertise or should i take a course to master also in-depth testing of electronic circuits or other computer assembly etc. Also can i find online any list of topics or interview examples that i can refer to prior to booking my own interview? Thank you for your time your advice will be much apreciated Nathaniel

      Vetassess Electrical Test

      Hello all, First post on here regarding the Vetassess Electrical Test. I've just had word that I passed The day is split into 4 parts, here's a run down of what I had to do.. Part 1: Basic Wiring. You have to fit a DB on a pylwood board, there's a single socket to wire under it using conduit. You then have to fit a couple of pipe clips for the small cutting of copper pipe to replicate the main service bonding. There's a couple of 1G2W switches to wire and a light, these are all on a layout diagram just follow the dimensions given. You have to do an R2 and IR test on the installation so know that R2 max is 0.5ohms and IR is 1Mohm minimum. It's really straight forward. Part 2: Motors. You have to start by drawing either a Star or Delta winding symbol in your workbook then there's a picture of motor connections and you have to draw how you would connect up the other way (I drew a Delta winding then drew the Star connection, it'll be clear to you on the day trust me). You're then asked to draw a motor control circuit ie L1 to Stop/Start unit, through the holding contact etc etc so swat up on how to do this, it's easy enough. Once you've drawn out all this you then have to connect up the control circuit. All the components are fitted on a white board with the terminals extended to female terminals and you get male leads to plug in, again this will become clear on the day. The assessor then asks you to take a walk and puts a fault in the circuit, my Stop/Start unit was bypassed so Stop Button done nothing, he just asked to rectify the fault. Part 3: Safe Isolation/Disconnect. This was the part I was dreading the most as the Vetassess guide is not the best. On the day our assessor said don't worry about the proceedure too much just show me you can do your job safely. It was a tubular heater that had given someone a shock. I tested the casing for live (you get a 'know power source' to prove from), tested the circuit for live (there is a switched fuse spur which has a conduit through box coming from it, this is where you do all your testing from), informed him I was going to isolate/lock off etc, he then says the heater has been replaced. I then proved the circuit was still isolated, carried out an R2/IR test on the heater (same values as Part 1), connected the heater and deisolated. Remember to prove your deadline tester before and after! Part 4: Question Paper. This was a pain in the arse as some of the questions were a nightmare ie What kind of motor is used in a refrigerator??? It's a multiple choice paper that's split into 6 parts and you only need 3 out of 4 in each section. Once you've finished your assessor will mark it and tick the correct answers and ask you to have a look at any wrong ones. My advice would be don't overthink this before the day as I was really worried about the isolation etc but it's really straight forward. They're looking for boys that don't have a clue so just keep calm and follow your workbook and you'll be fine. Any questions just ask, all the best.
    21. Hello All Just wondering if anyone here has ever used the VETASSESS occupation consultation service and whether the found it worth the money? I've been looking for an occupation to apply for a 189 visa, without boring everyone to death on my life story, I have a Bachelors Degree in Civil Engineering and work as an in house civil engineer for a house builder. The full design work is carried out by consultants but someone has to be here to appoint a consultant, outline what we want, check their designs, take them through the construction process solving all the little issues that inevitable come up. It also involves a lot of other things like getting quotes and designs for new services/making agreements with local authorities/NHBC conditions/Tree officers, all sorts really, but it's not something really straightforward to define like being a maths teacher for example. I had been thinking of applying under "Civil Engineering Technician 312212" As I'm sure I've got a highly relevant qualification, the job description information I've been able to find is pretty brief and a bit confusing, I've been thinking about using the Vetassess consultation service to try to find out what exactly they're looking for under that description and if I'd be able to make a convincing argument for myself, but it's more than 200 dollars for a 30 minute phone chat, Babestation doesn't charge those kind of rates, I was hoping there's someone out there who could advise me if it's a service that'd help me out or just money down the drain? Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.
    22. Hi wondering if anyone can help. Submitted paper assessment, which have received a level 1 for, does anyone know if you paid the extra $250 for the Letter of advice for points test, when you get this? Just worried as we need the points for 8 years overseas employment in the nominated trade, but on the assessment letter they state over 5 years, so really need the points test letter to verify we are going to get the points for 8 years plus. Does anyone know, as when I've rang them they have said they don't give this letter until the practical test has been undertaken, but my point is I feel this is stupid as doing an 1 day practical test isn't going to prove years in service, only the paper based assessment is going to prove this point. Incidentally the lady I spoke to was asian and I wasn't convinced she knew what I was talking about or even understood me!! She took 10 mins trying to find someone and then said they would e-mail me back to give me an answer, but not recived anything yet. Any input would be great if anyone has come across this. Thanks

      Required Qualification Point

      Dear All, Finally , I got my vetassess positive Assessment after a review for my employment , this was highly stressful to me , I'am 31 Egyptian female , I will apply for visa 489 South Australia - Invited Pathway Right now I'am preparing for my PTE Exam , I need your help because I keep questioning my Points I need 80 points including the 10 points of applying under a visa for regional areas and my qualification is not highly related , vetassess said that Bachelor of Literature awarded in 2006 by Assiut University, Egypt is assessed as comparable to the educational level of an AQF Bachelor degree and is therefore at the required level. Field of study Literature is not highly relevant and they accredited me with 8 years as a work experience in their point test so , Does it means that DIBP will take away some of these years for a non- highly relevant education in their point test I need an answer Please , thanks in advance

      VETASSESS

      Hello, At present my application is being reviewed by VETASSESS, I applied for priority screening to speed up the process because if my age factor. Now my question is, the other day I received a call from VETASSESS and was told that it was an assessment call, all we managed to do was a formal introduction and before the assessment could begin the call dropped off and I did not receive a call again. Will this have an impact on my application or process time? Thank you.
    25. Hi, My husband has just passed his competency profile and is due to sit the VETASSESS General Electrician practical exam this April. The candidate guide doesn't give a lot of detail about what to expect from the exam..........has anyone sat the practical GE exam? We'd REALLY appreciate some info from anyone who completed the practical in February or last October so we know what to expect? Thanks very much, Morris'
