PROCESS FOR PLUMBING SKILLS ASSESSMENT
The process is broken up into three stages. Plumbing is a licensed trade so employers in Australia will insist you hold your Australian Plumbing Qualification for registration and insurance purposes. It’s also important to know that each state and territory in Australia has different regulations and if you require a builders license you will need to obtain a Certificate 111 in prior to applying for your builders license.
1. SELF ASSESSMENT QUESTIONNAIRE: An online self-evaluation form to make sure your skill level is at the standard immigration is looking for. Please note the mandatory requirements and how many electives you will need to complete. Please email our office at firstname.lastname@example.org or call our office on 020 3376 1555 to obtain the Self Assessment Questionnaire. This is a free service.
2. DOCUMENTARY ASSESSMENT
DOCUMENTARY ASSESSMENT: In short, you are required to prove you are a Plumber and have the necessary skills to work as a Plumber in Australia. You will need to provide evidence you have been qualified as a Plumber for more than three years and that you have worked in this trade for a minimum of 12 months out of the last 36 months. You will be asked to prove this via pay slips, invoices, bank statements and/ or employment references. You also need to make sure you supply certified copies of your evidence and at least 20 photos of your work.
FIRST AID CERTIFICATE: Plumbers are required to have their First Aid Certificate when getting their Plumbing Skills Assessment for Australia. If you need to obtain your First Aid Certificate, please contact us today on 0203 376 1555 or visit our First Aid Course Page.
It is very important to remember that most of your evidence gathering for your Plumbing Skills Assessment is also required for your Visa. During your conversation with the Down Under Centre, we will also be able to advise how many years of work experience will be required to give you maximum points for your visa.
The Down Under Centre can provide you with an agency service to assist you at this stage as it is considered to be the most difficult stage of your visa application. Please call us on 0203 376 1555 to enquire about our agency service and how it can specifically help you. https://www.downundercentre.com/australian-skill-assessments
3. TECHNICAL SKYPE INTERVIEW
The final part of your Skills Assessment as a Plumber is a technical Skype interview. Here you will be required to come to our London venue The Down Under Centre based convieniently next to Ealing Broadway underground station https://www.downundercentre.com/contact. Alternatively, you can choose to carry out your technical Skype interview at a venue in Scotland.
We will organise an Australian qualified Plumber who is also an Australian qualified trainer and assessor to discuss your stage two application with you and your everyday working life as a Plumber. This is why it’s very important that you have provided the assessing body and their assessor with a full stage 2 pack. Please note that if the assessor feels that you do not have the necessary skills to work in Australia as a qualified Plumber, he will ask you to provide further information or complete a practical assessment/ site visit which will be at your cost. The Down Under Centre have never had a client that has required a site visit as yet as we work closely with them to ensure that this does not need to happen. The assessors understand that you may be nervous, they will discuss your application with you in a calm manner in a relaxed environment and do all they can to assist you and put you at ease.
As a tradie, you will need to obtain your White Card for Australia in order to work on any Australia building/construction site. The White Card is equivalent to your CSCS Card. We provide an online course and issue the Western Australia White Card which is accepted Australia-wide. To get started, visit our White Card Course page and Register an account.
Once you have passed, your White Card will be posted to the address you supplied in your registration.
