Electrician or Data Cabler??!!

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

My gf and I are trying to get started on our visas for Australia. I am a qualified electrician but have also done a lot of data cabling. I have seen the vetass assessment for electricians is quite expensive! I was wondering if you needed to carry out a similar assessment for data cabling or if this would be an easier route to go down. Any suggestions or help would be great.

 

Thanks

Not sure what visa you are applying for but data cabler isn't on the skills list so you are better off on the sparky route as long as you've been doing this work recently too.

By the way nice to meet a sparky that knows how to data cable - a lot do it here but the quality is rather shocking in a lot of cases.

The crazy thing is I (as a telecoms tech) had to pay for training to become a registered cabler here but sparkies can do Comms cabling under their licence with no training ??

Electrician will give you greater state choice (assuming you are looking to be state sponsored) as data cabler is only on the SA list currently.

My assessment for telecoms tech was through TRA back in early 2011 and took 8 weeks.
