Electrician granted a visa

Recommended Posts

Guest turboman

Hi guys,

After a real battle I have been granted my visa :)

Before this I was always on the net looking for information about Vetasse electricians and about criminal records. The vetasse can be hard and alot of what they say in the old posts have changed, I can help those who want some advise.

The practical is easy but you may have problems with the star and delta motor practical.The writen exam is close to 2391 but multipul choice, I have an email telling you what to expect (March 2011 I sat the exam) I will send to those electricians worried like I was.

Also I went to prison in 2006 and got sentanced 12 months, those who think they have no chance because they draw a line at a 12 month dont give up.

You will need proof of good character, I had to work for free for a long time and helped alot of younger offenders into work also trained 3 ex offenders who are now in fulltime employment as electricians.

Repeat offenders have no hope, 2nd chances happen but not to those who repeat crime, you should learn from your mistake the first time.

 

I know how much stress and worry it can be to want to live in Australia, its a dream to us all. I would like to help any of you that have any questions to make it easier for you.

 

I have had to fill every form and answer every question out there and nearly cried when I actually managed to do it..... Goodluck guys.

Hi turbo, first of all congrats on getting the visa, I'm just starting the process of trying to get the 457, I will have to do the Vetassess skills test, find a sponsor then apply for the 457, I'm 49 & hold a US journeyman's Electrical licence, was in the US for nearly 20 years, I have contacts over in oz but I have a lot of work to do! as you know yourself sleepless nights etc, I think I'll get through the vetassess but I do have one worry, a conviction in the 80's was pretty serious & I was inadvertently involved, don't want to mention it here, if you don't mind can you email me gmort@eircom.net I can explain the conviction to you, I also would be delighted if you could send me any info on the vetassess test, I'm pretty rusty with theory & used to the US system 110v etc. Thanks in advance.
