26 May Trades Recognition Australia & NSW Electrician licence

Trades Recognition Australia (TRA) is a skills assessment service provider specialising in assessments for people with trade skills gained overseas or in Australia, for the purpose of migration and skills recognition. Electricians that are not Australian citizens will need to attain a Trade Recognition Certificate from TRA in order to be eligible to join one of our courses and finalise their qualification requirements for a licence.

To be granted an Australian Recognised Trade Certificate (ARTC), you must be able to demonstrate that you:

  • are an Australian permanent resident or citizen, hold a New Zealand Passport, or hold a visa that allows you to temporarily reside and work in your trade in Australia
  • reside in Australia
  • have sufficient English language skills to perform the work of the trade safely in Australia
  • have sufficient training and experience to meet the requirements of the Criteria and Guidelines and the Tradespersons’ Rights Regulation Act 1946 (the Act).
  • have completed the requirements of the Offshore Technical Skills Record (OTSR) if one has been issued to you
  • have undertaken all steps in the assessment process including, where applicable, a technical interview, trade test or other action requested by a LC
  • are currently capable of performing the work of your trade in Australia.

Once you have your TRC visit a your local Qualify Me! office and they will put you in the right direction to get qualified fast!

    Hello guys, I am a permanent resident living in Australia for about 55 days. I have a oversea qualification as an electrician. Is it possĂ­vel to get an electrician license for free or even for a good discount or is it necessary paying the total amount?

      Hello Diogo,

      Unfortunately, you would need to have 4-5 years electrical work experience in Australia, working with a licensed electrician to be eligible for a RPL qualification. You may want to check details on recognising your overseas experience.
