Default Help a newbie

Hello everyone. Reading lots of useful info. Great site posted this somewhere else before doing a new thread.
My OH is a trainee electrician with 6yrs exp about to hopefully finish his C&G part 2 in june. He did this off his own back, no college tutoring.
I understand he has to have 2 yrs post qual exp, but could he get sponsorship before this?
His mum lives in brizzie and has a friend possibly willing to sponsor him with a cctv installing business. She is also willing to sponsor.
Any help would be lovely

Hi Lisawh,

My Hubby has been an electrician (on the railways) for 18 years and he went back to college to qualify and he qualified last year. We have been successfully assessed by Vetassess for his experience, he hasn't done 2 years post qualification work experience.

Hope this helps.

No probs, good luck to him then, tell him to have a look at the Vetassess website at the requirements for the paperwork so he can start gathering his experience etc, it'll be easier than thinking of it when the time comes to complete it!!

Hi,

We don't mind either NSW (south of Sydney), Adelaide or Perth. If we get to the visa stage then we'll be off as soon as possible. We didn't use an agent and I've looked at the Immigration website and followed the steps and think we'll be ok doing it ourselves, never know though, depends how we feel at the time eh!! I don't think they can get things moving any faster and I also think they hear the outcome before you, that's hardly fair is it!!!!!! Some people prefer to use one for peace of mind that the form is fully complete etc, it really is a personal choice!!

What about you?

hopefully brisbane, boyfs mum lives there. Thinking of not using an agent too but reading all the threads on here makes you think its harder than originally thought. Good that this is here to give you guidance tho.

Yeah, three of them. Want to go and give them a much better life as well as ourselves of course. The eldest has been before with us and really wants to go, with some apprehension of course! The other two are too young to realise. My best friend made the move to Oz nearly 5 years ago and loves it, she visited back here last year and said that she's never coming back again!!!! Her husbands family have always lived there though, I think it's probably more comforting to have people out there that you know but the whole thing is exciting, nervewracking and a real rollercoaster ride getting there!!

Dave and I off to Melbourne.
We loved Perth but I have a cousin on the Mornington Peninsula and we loved it down there so thats where we're off.
We've seen a small flat for sale and keep thinking about buying it, if 1 of the houses sells soon then we will - we'll see.
Def Melbourne though.
Just us and the daft cat.
