Is a qualification required to start the Toolmaker skills assessment for Australian Migration

No, it’s not mandatory that you hold a Toolmaker qualification to migrate to Australia as a Toolmaker.

You are required to either hold your completed apprenticeship papers as a Toolmaker (Please note these qualifications could fall under many engineering qualifications) and 3 years of paid work experience pre or post qualification for the Toolmaker skills assessment.

If you don’t have an NVQ3, you are required to have a minimum of 5 years paid work experience as a Toolmaker. 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 Australian migration.
