  1. Has anyone recently submitted and/or received a VETASSESS skills assessment? I understand that their stated processing time of 12 weeks is only an estimate, but I'm curious to know what the timeline has been like for you? I submitted mine last week of June 2022. The wait is killing me, as I'm having to put a lot of things in hold waiting for the outcome—any idea would be helpful to manage my expectations. Thank you!
  2. Hi, I’m a barber about to do a hairdressing test at Vetassess, do specialists have to do all the units in the test, or just relevant ones? Thankyou David
  3. Hi im David, im new on here! Im a barber, qualified and over /0 years experience, would I be able to pass the Hairdressing vesassess test? Looks really difficult!
  4. Thought id put a post up on what to expect from the vetassess technical interview for electricians ( general ) . As i was sh×tting myself trying to find any information on what to revise / what they will ask etc . All i found was everyone asking the same question and no one replying so here i go . To start off im a electrician from the uk and i completed my apprenticeship in 2010 . So i had not been in any situation where i was tested on my electrical theory , ( which i was never great at when i was doing my apprenticeship ) so i was really nervous . I did this in covid times( i actually had covid at the time so i was self isolating ) so it was all on skype ( adobe ) . So the questions were pretty simple . A few multiple choice and some just straight up . Off the top of my head i remember × A couple on - identifying risks × A couple on - safe isolation ( revise this because there are way more steps in oz than there was the AM2 ) X A couple on cable selection - ( but really easy , no calculator needed , just as well because you arnt allowed to have ANYTHING in the room other than yourself and a glass of water ) X a couple on cable protection ( name something you could use to protect a cable from mechanical damage ? ) hd conduit .. simple × a couple on rcds ( describe the operation ) × one was showing you a analog megger and it was set on 500v dc ir test and he just asked what the tester was set on . Then asked what the purpose of the ir test is . × then name the tests you need to perform on a new installation ( didnt even need to explain them ) × burnt out connection on red phase on a motor terminal . What could be the cause ? × then a couple on a dol starter . ( what does it stand for . How would i add another emergency stop button etc ) Only one i struggled on was he showed me a wiring diagram of a dol starter ( with symbols that were numbered ) and he asked me what each number was . Because like most things really , i just got shown how to wire one and just remembered from there , never looked at the wiring diagram or symbols . So nothing too technical. Hope this helps . Good luck

    Vetassess- Electrician

    Hi I’m new to the website after some help from what seems like a great community on here. I’ve been in Australia 3 years and have finally got enough money to apply for the electrical vetassess . I have the Skype interview soon and I’m just wondering if anyone can help me on what to revise and what to expect, I haven’t t done much electrical work since being in aus so I am abit rusty. I have 10 years experience in the UK but obviously college days feel like a distant memory. any help would be greatly appreciated. thanns allot Chris
  6. Hi all, I am confused by the Vetassess Group C category for pre-qualification employment experience, specifically the wording here: "*If employment is prior to the completion of the qualification at the required level, an applicant must have at least one year of highly relevant employment at an appropriate skill level within the last five years. The remaining three years of pre-qualifying period may be within the last ten years. A positive assessment of both qualification level and employment duration is required for a positive Skills Assessment outcome." I am looking to apply for Conference/ Event Organizer. I have spent the last four years in this role in Australia (self-employed) and I am currently studying a Diploma which I will finish in December of this year. My question is.. Do I need to wait until a year Post Qualification... or is my four years of experience + my Diploma awarded at the end of the year all that is necessary for positive skills assessment. The wording has got me confused. I know it does say "Pre-qualification" on Vetassess, but the phrase appropriate skill level is ambiguous. Thanks so much for your assistance.
  7. Hi, I am currently on a subclass 482 dependent visa working as a plant & equipment valuer in a reputed organisation in Australia. My organisation is willing to sponsor my PR (186). However, since I have less than 3 years of experience in Australia, they have asked for a positive skills assessment. I understand that a valuer is a category A occupation and VETASSESS requires a positive skills assessment in both education and experience. I have around 4 years of experience as a valuer across different organisations in India and Australia but I have not undertaken a formal study in the field of valuation. I am a Mechanical Engineer and have post grad degree as an MBA. Would VETASSESS consider my application without a formal study undertaken in the field of valuation? Separately, a lot of work that we do is for accounting and taxation purposes for the client. I have tried applying with CPA for skills assessment as an accountant but they have noted that I do not meet certain criteria and have asked me to complete a foundation exam on Financial Accounting and Reporting. Does the different authorities CPA, CAANZ and IPA have different criteria of judging? Do they talk to each other if I were to apply a skills assessment with different authority? What is the best way out of it?
  8. Hi, I am planning to apply for my 186 DE. I have three years of full time experience in my relevant field, which is in medium term list. I did my skill assessment with vetassess and they deducted 1 year of my experience and it’s showing 2 years in the letter. 186 DE requires 3 years of experience but it doesn’t say that it should be on the vetassess letter, it just says that you need a positive skill assessment. My agent says that it will be fine as the department will count the three years of work experience I have. can someone please suggest that will this be fine, as I do have full three years of experience?
  9. Hi All, I am new to this forum and need your help. I have 6 years of experience in pharmacovigilance/drug safety and is currently working in a CRO. Can you please confirm the ANZSCO code which is applicable to this field? VETASSESS assessment for ANZSCO code 234599 was negative for me. Thank you.
  10. Hello Friends, I am currently onshore in Australia and trying to apply for PR under 190 subclass. My occupation is "Mathematician". I need to have a positive assessment from Vetassess before I apply for 190. I have done my PhD in Mathematics from an Australian University in 2020. Currently I am working as teaching associate and diploma teacher at two different Universities/Tertiary Institute respectively. My job of teaching associate is more than 2 years and the diploma teacher job is less than a year. The teaching asscociate job had started during my PhD. However, prior my PhD, I have done my Masters in Mathematics from India which is also a valid qualification for assessment I think and thus might use my both jobs as post-study work. However both the jobs are sessional. So I was wondering if anyone can share experience, if any, of Vetassess assessment with sessional jobs? Thanks in advance

    HR Manager/Advisor - vetassess/AIM

    Hey Guys Just looking for anybody with any experience proving their skills as a human resources advisor or manager to vetassess or AIM. My Wife is currently a HR manager with no degree, a CIPD level 5 and almost 5 years experience (20 months she will have 5 years experience). She ticks all the boxes of the highly relevant tasks for both a manager and and advisor, I will try to keep this into as little questions as possible. What documentation/evidence do each assessor require? Do they need verbal or written confirmation from an employer or is clear documentation fine? as her current employers are unfortunately quite likely to sabotage this is given the opportunity to do so. In terms of job tasks she qualifies now however her official title before being promoted to the manager position was not a manager or advisor but an assistant (official tasks still tick all the boxes) could this be used now as possible experience? I look forward to any feedback you guys can help with. thank you all
  13. Hello Everyone This is my first post here. I hope I'll find what I am looking for.

Thus, I was really hoping you guys (especially those who has experience in the topic) can give me advice and suggestions. I'll be much obliged for any! Thank you in advance, Eliza

  15. 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.
  16. Hi guys, I am going to take a technical interview for a cook did someone had done already the interview? Could anyone tell us a bit of advice and a sort of question to ask in the interview? I am looking forward to your reply guys. Thank you!
  17. Hi, I did my Bachelors in Medical laboratory technologist in Nepal. I have a 2 years of work experience in Microbiology department in a private laboratory back in Nepal and my job position was Laboratory technologist. I came to Tasmania 2 years ago and I recently graduated in masters in Microbiology. I am going to apply for skill assessment as a microbiologist. My duties and responsibilities as a lab technologist in micro department exactly matches the Job description of Microbiologist provided by Vetassess. Now my question is, are there any chances of getting negative result just because my job position was Laboratory technologist although my area of specialisation was microbiology. I am afraid if vetassess gonna reject my application as I have seen some applications being rejected just because the title of the position was not matching.
  18. Hello, I am planning for VETASSESS skill assessment. I have the following documents to support my employment claims 1. Experience letter 2. Payslips (for the entire duration of my employment) 3. Job contract 4. Salary certificate 5. Relieving letter 6. Joining letter However, because I had some financial discrepancy with the bank, they are refusing to issue the bank statement for the period of employment. Should be really concerned about the absence of bank statement. I work in the Middle East (UAE) and there is no tax on personal income. Looking for answers from experienced ones Thanks and regards
  19. 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
  20. I got negative assessment for being my tasks are not highly relevant with the occupation applied for; Financial Investment Adviser (222311).

  21. 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

  24. My husband and I (along with children) are very keen to emigrate to Australia from Northern Ireland. We have looked at the independent skilled migration visa and my job is on the list - Primary Health Organisation Manager. I am a GP practice manager with 5 years experience, 31 years old and have recently graduated with a level 5 diploma in primary health management. When I completed the VETASSESS application, it has been returned as a negative outcome as it says I need a bachelors degree. My husband is 41 years old and is a Scaffolder (owns his own company). He is also an Irish league footballer and is due to complete his UEFA coaching badges this month to open more avenues if possible. I am also a part time singer and own a well established wedding band in Northern Ireland and as a couple, we lease a pub/restaurant so we both have experience in this industry too. We don’t know what other avenue we can go down now that the VETASSESS has failed. Any advice would be great.
  25. Hi all, I saw on vetassess website following. Licensed Trades - 6 years' employment experience (with no formal training) Licensed Trades - 4 years' employment experience (with relevant formal training) Can anyone pls tell me if the formal training is your academic qualifications (Diploma or Degree) ? Or formal training is a separate training done after Diploma or Degree? Thank you
