How does the Carpenter skills assessment for migrating to Australia work?

If you want to move to Australia as a Carpenter on a skilled (points based) visa you are required to complete the Carpentry skills assessment.

The skill assessing regulator for a Carpenter is TRA (Trades Recognition Australia). TRA have selected RTOs (Registered Training Organisations) that deliver the Carpentry skills assessment for migration to Australia.

The Carpentry skills assessment is a 2-step process; you need to prove to the assessor that you have the necessary skills as a Carpenter.

The first stage is paper based, proving your skills as a Carpenter through detailed statements from employers detailing your Carpentry duties, pay and tax details for when you were working as a Carpenter, detailed CV showing all training and work experience as a Carpenter, photos of your completed Carpentry skills, videos displaying your Carpentry expertise and your Carpentry qualifications.

The second stage is a technical interview with an Australian qualified Carpenter who is also a qualified trainer and assessor; this is a relaxed chat over Skype or Zoom where you have a one-to-one with our Australian Carpenter Assessor.
