If my partner is the main applicant for the visa, should I complete the Welder skills assessment for Australia?
With a passport from the UK, Canada, Ireland, USA or New Zealand you automatically add 5 points to your partner’s Australian visa application.
If you completed the Welder (First Class) 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 Engineering – Fabrication Trade. This is huge as employers want you to hold the necessary welding qualification so they can insure you.
