Document Checking Service
The Document Checking Service provides guidance to applicants and agents/lawyers in meeting the documentation requirements for formal Skills Assessment applications. Ensuring your documentation is in order when you first lodge a formal Skills Assessment means the application has a better chance at being assessed in a shorter timeframe.
We check whether you have provided a sufficient number and type of documentation in order for us to be able to effectively complete a formal skills assessment. The Document Checking Service provides step-by-step guidance over the phone followed by a written summary report.
Please note this service does not provide advice regarding the content relevance of your documents nor whether a likely outcome for a formal Skills Assessment will apply. This service does not replace a formal Skills Assessment and does not include advice about Points Test. A comprehensive list of documentation required for Skills Assessment is available on the VETASSESS website here.
