Uk trade certificate’s

Recommended Posts

Hi,

in the uk I hold my temporary works coordinator ticket, my CSCS card in scaffolding and my IOSH managing safely.

is any of those certificates recognised in Australia?

and can I do my white card over in the UK before I arrive in Oz?

Thanks in advance

The Aussis take great pride in viewing your certs as trash.......you will need to re train over here.........

your white card takes about an hour to do and I'm sure your retrain will only be a couple of day courses. check out some of the training agents

I am pretty sure a UK CSCS card is the same as a White Card here, last i was aware you had to be in Aus to apply for it.

The IOSH cert i think is valid here - 

They are internationally recognised health and safety certificates relevant to working life and based on best practice. IOSH is the world's largest professional health and safety membership organisation with an increase in members across Australia.

but worth checking with someone like this - https://www.astutisinternational.com/australia/iosh-courses.html

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

In regard to uk qualifications 

if you are happy to work for somebody you will be ok if they know you are uk qualified Carpenter / joiner if you wish to go out in your own , you will need to get licensed to carry out any work over 5k and with cost of Materials it’s very easy. 
 

I did an intensive 9 week course through Master builders  ( Friday/ Sunday) over 9 weeks all up with time off work , hotel, travel down to sydney etc 18k to get equivalent to get licensed. 
hope this helps
