189/190 Australian experience points

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, qualified sparky currently working through the process towards either 189, 190, 489 or spouse visa for Northern Territory. Got my skills assessment in the morning at the down under centre in London and IELTS on the weekend. I've been in Australia the last 2 years WHV and for the best part of 1 1/2 of them i was working for electrical companies in the NT doing the majority of the work and alongside A grade sparks. Question is because i wasn't qualified there, can i use it towards skillselect points as inside australia experience? Thanks

Unfortunately only experience after the qualification was obtained is considered skilled. Be careful what you claim for as it can end up in refusal. Good luck at DU Centre :)

When at the DUC, be sure to speak to Wes about how to go about obtaining your electrical licence when you get to Australia. You can now do the theory here, but you'll still need to log your hours in Australia on your provisional licence.
