If my partner is the main applicant for the visa, should I complete the Joiner skills assessment for Australia?
If you have a passport from the UK, Ireland, Canada, USA or New Zealand you automatically add 5 points to your partner’s Australia visa application. If you completed the Joiner skills assessment for Australia (and are under 45 years of age) this would add 10 points.
Not only do you get extra points for an Australian skilled visa you will arrive in Australia with your Australian certificate III in Joinery. This is huge as employers want you to hold the necessary qualification so they can insure you as Joiners in Australia use plenty of machinery and tools that can cause harm. Australia is big on health and safety!
