Is a qualification required to start the Motor Mechanic skills assessment for Australian Migration?
It’s not mandatory to have a qualification to start the Motor Mechanic skills assessment. You are required to EITHER hold your completed apprenticeship papers as a Motor Mechanic (Please note these qualifications could fall under many motor mechanical qualifications) and 3 years of paid work experience pre or post qualification working as a mechanic. So, if you are from the UK and hold an NVQ3 as a Motor Mechanic you would only require the 3 years.
If you have NO NVQ3, you are required to have a minimum of 5 years paid work experience as a Motor Mechanic. It is common for clients to be assessed without holding any formal training or qualification so we use your 5 years of paid work experience as proof for the Motor Mechanic skills assessment.
