Electrical Skills Assessment Australia

The Down Under Centre is proud to have Future Skills International working from our Centre. They deliver the Australian Government approved Skills Assessment for the purpose of migration and registration for electricians. Future Skills delivers technical electrical assessment bimonthly from DUC training centre.


Prior to completing a Skills Assessment for Australia, the Down Under Centre advises you to speak to a MARA approved migration agent. There is no point completing a skills assessment for Australia if you can’t use your new qualification once in Australia!!

If you would like to see if you are eligible for a Skilled Visa, use our free visa points calculator and/or send your CV to info@downundercentre.com and our Migration Consultants will be happy to advise on your options.


It’s a two step process for the electrical skills assessment to gain your Offshore Technical Skills Record and Skills Assessment result.

1. DOCUMENTARY ASSESSMENT AND ADMIN FEE – $1100 AUD: Give our office a call today to speak to one of our trained staff who can advise if you are eligible for the Electrical Skills Assessment. We are opened Monday to Friday 9am-5pm.

You are required to gather all evidence for Future Skills International to assess. In short, you need to prove you have the skills required to complete the Practical Assessment. You need to prove you have worked as an electrician for more than 3 years if you hold your country of residence qualifications.  If you don’t hold any qualifications, you must supply proof you have been working in the electrical industry for 7 years.

Once you have passed the documentary assessment stage, you will be advised to organise your 1-day Technical Assessment. During the Practical Assessment you will be tested on your electrical qualifications.  You are not required to know the Australian electrical standards at this point but you will need to pass 3 practical assessments and a technical Interview. The Practical is:

Wiring of a switchboard with circuit breakers, two way switching and power outlets – you will be tested to see if the board works. Motor control circuit, draw a circuit and wire a motor that runs when pressing the start button the contactor energises and turns on a three phase motor. The applicant must demonstrate a competent safe disconnect and reconnect procedure as part of this assessment. Test board, simulating a domestic installation with a few faults you need to find.
