Default What qualifications/courses?????

Hi All,

I like many others am a plumbing/gas engineer looking to attempt the big move with my family, looking at Queensland to be more specific the reason I am posting again is some posts are quite dated and regulations and requirements change quiet a lot these days and would like some up to date info if possible.

I have plenty experience over in the U.K around 15yrs and i'm qualified in both domestic and commercial plumbing and gas and have ran my own business for around 8yrs over here, anyway all that being said I am more than aware that this doesn't really stand for much when going to another country that has different methods of work and different regulations etc.

From what I understand (however I might be wrong I'm pretty good at it) there might be some kind of change over course, TAFE keeps popping up and also I read something about working as a plumbers mate under supervision for around a year until you can then become licensed.

I would be grateful for any clarity on any of the above.

Thanks

This is a thread about moving to Australia as a plumber. You have also posted in one about California. Work out which country you are moving to and find out what courses are relevant to that country rather than just looking at random ones.
