Arron Martin

Britis gas Engineer moving to Melbourne seeking advice and help (please!)

Recommended Posts

Hi, my names Arron, 27. Moving to Melbourne at the end of October with my partner and our dog on a de-facto partner visa so luckily don't need to worry about work visas as such. 

I've worked for British Gas for the past 9 years as a gas engineer- servicing and repairs. Just hoping for a little advice/guidance from someone who has already been through the process of getting skills assessed and finding gas work in Australia. How was it/ what are the differences/ any tips please?!


Thank you

It isn't just getting a skills assessment. You will need to gain a license. The process varies a bit by state, but as a general guide you will need to undertake some college courses and work as a trade assistant (a bit like an apprentice) for a year and maintain a log book. If you do some searches in the forum you will find a number of threads on the process
