Default Waiting for 176 visa

Hi everybody my name is Paul and i am in the process of waiting for a visa,with the new rules regarding the points system since sept 07 i was 5 points short but in time to apply for the TRA application which was granted,however as i was short on points and reading the horror stories of the IELTS testing i went for perth state sponsorship which again was granted.I am a JIB approved electrician and i have just returned from aus from a holiday with my family,while i was there i met a pommie electrician with his own contracting company who gave me a general outlook on thr licensing system in WA which he said was awkward.I have become an avid reader of Steve O and Wendy's posts regarding licensing especially the Peer course in SA.My question is ...is it possible to do the course in SA whilst on a sponsored WA visa and if i pass the correspondants course the time it takes to transfer state licensing to WA
Any help please
Regards
PB and family

I can't see why it's not possible as there is no requirement to show your visa to get on to the course, or apply for a licence in SA. You will need to for the ARTC, but that can be sent anywhere in Australia and is the same certificate regardless of where you live.

I'm not sure how long it would take to transfer to WA, but I would imagine it wouldn't be that long - maybe a few weeks tops.
