Assessing work experience

Recommended Posts

Guest scijmb

I understand that an assessing authority take your qualifications into account when deciding if you meet the criteria for a particular occupation, but at what stage and by whom does your work experience get assessed? Is this proven purely by references from current/former employers? Help, I'm confused!

Hi :D

 

It is at the first stage of your application that your trade must be recognised by Trades Recognition Australia (TRA) which should take between 2-3 months. We have just lodged ours and have been told it is currently taking approx 6 weeks.

After this stage we will be told which areas will be willing to sponsor us.

 

What is your trade :?:

 

Best of luck G+Z

Thanks G + Z. I will be applying under the life scientist category which is assessed by VETASSESS. They only appear to want to see degree certificates. Do all occupations go through the TRA? I've never heard of them before.

You are correct - your assessment is done by VETASSESS, not the TRA. (Website below)
