Skills Assessment for professional occupations

A Skills Assessment is an important part of the professional occupations recognition process when migrating to Australia. It will determine if you have the skills and knowledge required to work in your occupation in Australia. At VETASSESS, we assess more than 360 professional occupations.

FAQs

If you do not meet the requirements for your nominated occupation, you will be issued with a letter that states that you have not met the pre-migration skills assessment requirements. The letter will indicate the assessment components where your application did not meet the requirements.

If you disagree with the outcome, you should discuss your case with the assessor who will advise you on the options available for a reassessment where applicable.

VETASSESS has categorised its general occupations into groups A, B, C, D and E for assessment purposes according to the indicative skill level on ANZSCO.
