Another sleepless night ... AQF III

Recommended Posts

Hiya all!

 

Following another sleepless night I have decided to have a bit of a rant on here and hope that someone ... anyone can help me!!

 

I have posted on this site before asking about a 176 visa for my husband as a Radiocommunications Technician but have now found that there may be another way in for us, please take the time to read this as it is quite a long winded question!!

 

My husband currently works on the Digital Switch over contract in London installing satellite equipment (radiocommunications job on SOL). He took this job when the recession hit as there was very little work about in his previous job which was working on a self employed basis for 10 years as a floor fitter, specialising in wooden and laminates. I have now found that the SOL for WA lists 'Floor Finisher' and am wondering whether to go for this option as he does still attend clients homes for service issues regarding flooring in his current position (re-routing cables under flooring etc). He would need to get his skills assessed but we have found several forums which advise the AQF III certificate to increase the chances of a positve TRA assessment but have also found comments stating that DIAC are in dispute with the TRA as they will only accept this qualifiction if it is completed in Australia over a two year period. Can he take this assessment in the UK? Can onyone recommend a good company to contact? Even if he can, will a specialism in wooden flooring be enough?

 

Any help would be very much appreciated!

Hi Eve

I don't know the answer but want to wish you and your husband all the best.

If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.
