Trade Occupations

Skills Assessment for trade occupations

A Trade Skills Assessment is an important part of the process when migrating to Australia. The assessment determines if you have the skills and knowledge required to work in your occupation in Australia.

At VETASSESS, we assess 25 trade occupations. This includes occupations such as an electrician, welder, plumber, carpenter, cook or motor mechanic.
