Why is a Metal Machinist skills assessment required?

A skills assessment is a mandatory requirement so you, the migrant, can apply for a visa to Australia. This is the way Australian Immigration can gauge if you are a Metal Machinist under the Australian guidelines. Many people want to move to Australia as a Metal Machinist and without a skills assessment delivered by an approved assessing body, Australian immigration have no way in checking a migrant has the necessary skills. To emigrate to Australia as a Metal Machinist you will need to complete the Metal Machinist (First Class) skills assessment for a skilled visa.
