By Jackson dsouzaHello everyone,
Did anyone in the group get an assessment done through engineers Australia recently. I work as a safety engineer and graduated as a mechanical engineer.
My first assessment with vetassess came back negative, as I did not have any OH&S certification.

Is it possilbe to pass a carpenter vetassess on experience alone?
A little background:
My brother is 41 and has worked as a carpentry for 20 years, though he has no formal qualification, he did complete a 4 year apprenticeship but struggles with ADHD and was unable to pass the final written exams.
My partner and I would really appreciate any help with skilled visas for Plumbers. I have so many questions and I keep getting told different things.
We're wanting to go down the route of skilled migration as a Plumber in Australia. We have both lived in Australia previously for 4 years (I was sponsored) but left due to family reason back at home in the UK.
So, my partner has a NVQ level 2 in plumbing (Not a level 3). Do you know if NVQ level 2 is enough of a qualification for a Plumber?
He has over 5 years plumbing experience in the UK, and 2 years plumbing experience in Australia.
We've been advised that to pass VETASSESS you need to have either Gas or Roofing experience. However, he doesn’t have much experience working with gas and no experience in roofing.
My partner is currently completing a Gas course to get the knowledge, would this be enough for VETASSESS? Please can you give us some information about how hard or easy the test was for you.
Any tips, advice or guidance would be great.
Thank you in advance for your help.
By SpaghettiWinstonI entered Australia on a Prospective Marriage visa in April 2017 and got married the following month. I then applied for a Partner visa.
At the time the application was submitted, I attached the same statutory declarations that I used for the Prospective Marriage visa (from my mother-in-law and sister-in-law.) They are from April 2016.
I have not yet provided any additional statutory declarations.
So far, I have received one letter requesting further information (which was supplied) and my husband received another from the Sponsorship Assessment Unit. We supplied the information that they requested. However, on neither occasion did they ask for another statutory declaration.
Looking back through the documents I have submitted, I am apprehensive that they may not accept the "old" statutory declarations even though they have not flagged this with us in the two instances they have been in contact. They didn't mention the fact our police checks were more than 12 months old either, but to err on the side of caution I ended up obtaining some new ones in November.
Do you think we need to supply more statutory declarations, or should it be fine as is?
By nathanHello everyone
i am currently in the proccess of applying for skilled visa (189/ 190- depending on IELTS score)
i am an installer of Home audio video (home theatre systems) and smart homes for the past 12 years - my immigration agent told me that since i do not have a certificate that is recognized by australian government i need to have a skills assessment interview at the UK before applying for the visa.
my question is:
As i can understand - electronic equipment trades consist of a variety of proffesions such as alarm techniciens / electronic repair techniciens and computer techniciens. which are quiet different from my daily job.
in this assessment interview will i be asked about my specific field of expertise or should i take a course to master also in-depth testing of electronic circuits or other computer assembly etc.
Also can i find online any list of topics or interview examples that i can refer to prior to booking my own interview?
Thank you for your time
your advice will be much apreciated
