Document Checking Service

Use our Document Checking Service to understand the documents you will need to provide with your Skills Assessment application.

Check you have the right documents before you apply.

Ensuring your documentation is in order when you lodge your Skills Assessment means your application has a better chance of success and you will avoid delays. We check that you have provided enough documentation for us to complete your skills assessment. We will give you step-by-step guidance about your documents in a phone conversation, and then provide a written summary.

The Document Checking Service offers an opportunity to discuss assessment documentation requirements with a VETASSESS Administrative Officer. The service focuses on the type and number of mandatory documents required to support a future skills assessment application, rather than the relevance of your qualifications and employment experience to the requirements of a specific occupation. This service does not replace a Skills Assessment and it's important to know that we don't check the content of your documents. You can ask us about the type of documents you need and if you have enough of them.

No. There is no requirement to use either of the Skills Assessment Support services before applying for a formal Skills Assessment. Information is available on our website about the requirements for Skills Assessments.
