When you have your visa and are ready to come over then you will need to apply for a licence to be able to work fully as an electrician here.

For QLD, you are best looking for posts from Steve 'O as that is his area and he will be able to make it clearer than I will, as I'll probably get something in the wrong order.

The South Australia wiring rules course is done at Peer, who are a registered training organisation and their course takes about 3 weeks.

i am in the same position as you mate, but as i understand you can work once there on a provisional licence which means lower rate of pay. Having read other threads on this site I think you can do the blue card on the net and the cpr course can be done at st johns ambulance which will save you some time on arrival.

hope this helps.

It doesn't take 16 weeks in South Australia, it takes 3 weeks.

Look for posts from Steve 'O, he is in QLD
