I'll second that.

It would be very interesting to hear from people who have been through it and to share their experience.

Hi,
I am a fully qualified plumber aged 44, looking to hear from anyone who has or is going through the practical test.
Thinking of moving to Brisbane with my family, anyone give me some idea on lifestyle there would be great.

YES all plumbers have to complete the prac test, it is a pain but if thats what is required then thats what we do.
Not sure if anyone has actually done the plumbing one yet but i no most other trades have, do a search on the test and look at the threads for info.

hi mate i am also 44 and wanting to move to perth, time is short for us though as the practical test has to be done before visa can be lodged have just received all the paper work for it and it looks pretty difficult and finding evidence of everything i have done will be fun. seems as though 25 years of experience is not enough ! good luck to you

Hi Nick,

I have just got all the onfo needed to apply for a visa, now i just need to action and start the process. My wife looked at pom in Oz web and she has seen an advertisement there wanting plumbers up to the age of 50, if successful they will get permanent residency. Seems like another option maybe? We are looking at Brisbane. Seems the whole process does take about a year, so good luck mate.

If you could let me have the web site your wife saw that would be great, many thanks nick

hi, have just read your comments, I have been a plumber/gas fitter in the uk for 14 years and have always been working on new build home. I have all my qualifications but by the looks of things I may still have to sit a test, can you tell me if this part is part of the visa app, ie do they send it to you or do you have to research this yourself,

I take it that I would not be able to work straight away as a plumber without this test or would a provisional lic be ok to start with.



any help appreciated. cheers, ian

hi
as a plumber going to aus you would be required to sit a skills test before applying for your visa, this is based on 3 parts. a self assesment (this is free), you then submit a app form with evidence( this can take a while to get together and there is a charge). finaly if they think you are ok to procede you sit a two day skills assesment(again there is a charge). then you apply for visa. I think this is all correct. the web site with all info is www.vetassess.com.au.
hope this helps!!

Im in the middle of my paper work but have spoken to some one regarding the practicle test which was in december, the only one held so far and it was all basic stuff accept you had to do a bit of brazing, they also asked a few questions on the way but wernt trying to catch you out, they just were making sure you were a UK plumber and that was it.

How long after the test did they receive their results?
