Priority Processing Service, holiday shutdown

Our Priority Processing service for professional occupations will be suspended during the end-of-year break. Our last day for accepting applications in 2021 will be December 1 and the service will resume on January 4, 2022. Please ensure you submit any Priority Processing applications by the close of business on December 1, 2021. Other Skills Assessment applications for professional occupations will be accepted as usual.

Pathway 2 applicants in trades

We have new requirements from Trades Recognition Australia for Pathway 2 applicants in licensed trades.

Applicants who hold an Australian VET qualification will need to demonstrate:

  • at least 3 years full-time (or equivalent part-time) paid employment in the nominated occupation at the required skill level required, including at least 12 months full-time (or equivalent part-time) paid employment in the nominated occupation that has been completed in Australia in the three years prior to lodging the application.

Applicants with a current identified Australian occupational licence (not subject to restrictions) must demonstrate:

  • at least 3 years full-time (or equivalent part-time) paid employment in the nominated occupation at the required skill level required, including 12 months full-time (or equivalent part-time) paid employment in the nominated occupation that has been completed in Australia or New Zealand in the three years prior to lodging the application.

The above changes will be applicable for all new skills assessment applications for the occupations of Air-conditioning and Refrigeration Mechanic, Electrician (General), Electrician (Special Class) and Plumber (General) lodged from 1 November.

For more information, please email us at tradeassess@vetassess.com.au.

Trade Occupations

From November 1, all new applicants under the occupation of Bricklayer who successfully complete a Pathway 1 skills assessment will receive a new qualification, CPC33020 Certificate III in Bricklaying and Blocklaying.

This will ensure applicants have the most up-to-date qualification.

Technical interview assessments for trade occupations

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we are now conducting Technical Interview assessments online for all non-licensed trade occupations or Pathway 2 licensed occupations.

While we are still taking applications, delays may be experienced due to the constraints within the current environment.

Thank you for your understanding at this time.
