A positive skills assessment is a mandatory requirement for all skilled migration visa applications and certain employer sponsorship visas in Australia.
This process requires you to submit an application to authorised assessment bodies. They will assess whether your skills and experience meet the occupational standards set by the Australian authorities. Each occupation has a designated assessment body responsible for the evaluation. For example, accountants undergo assessment by CPA Australia, while electricians are evaluated by Trades Recognition Australia.
What Are The Requirements?
Although skills assessment requirements vary based on the occupation, there are 4 general requirements:
Qualifications: Your educational background will be evaluated to see if: 1) they are relevant to the nominated occupation and 2) if they are equivalent to the Australian qualification standards. Depending on your profession, you may need a relevant degree, diploma, certificate or vocational training.
Work Experience: For most occupations, you must show relevant work experience in your nominated occupation. The required experience can vary but is typically in the range of 1-2 years.
English Proficiency: You might be required to prove your English language proficiency by taking a recognised test such as IELTS, TOEFL, or PTE.
Professional Registration or Licensing: For some occupations, you may need to have (or be eligible to obtain) professional registration or licensing in Australia.
Which Skills Assessment is Right for You?
This depends on your nominated occupation. Each occupation has its own designated skills assessment authority. You can find yours in our blog post here.
