Is a qualification required for the Drainer skills assessment Australia?

To apply for the Drainer skills assessment, you need to either;

  • Hold an NVQ Level 3 in Drainage and have 3 years of paid work experience post NVQ Level 3 as a Drainer;
  • Or if you do not hold an NVQ Level 3 in Drainage, then you will need to obtain the AQF Certificate II in Drainage and prove 6 years of full-time paid work experience as a Drainer, so you can then move forward to apply for the Drainer skills assessment.

If you have a UK qualification as a Drainer and do not need the AQF II for the visa, then you may want to consider still obtaining the AQF II as this will help when you are looking for Drainage jobs in Australia.
