Hi everyone,

 

I wondered if anybody could help me..... I applied to vetasses as a cook and passed my technical assessment but they want me to take a first aid course. The course they have suggested is a 3 day course at a cost of £380! They require me to have a level 2 first aid certificate I wondered if anybody else has been in a similar situation and can suggest any other courses that aren't so expensive and aren't 3 days as It will be difficult to get time off of work.

I am using a migration agent but the one I started with left, so I am using a different agent within the same company. When I first started the process I wasn't told that I needed a first aid certificate it was only during the technical interview it was brought up. I have suggested other courses but they say they don't meet their standards yet the course they are comparing to in Australia is a one day course and they haven't provided what the course entails so I can compare.

 

If anyone has any suggestions or could help I would really appreciate it!

 

Many thanks

I'd do what the assessor wants, £380 is peanuts in the grand scheme of things. I reckon from start to finish our visa cost circa £7k and a further £10k to move over there. Just bite the bullet and do the course!
