TRA skills assessment

Hi

I have a positive TRA skills assessment for General Electrician (ASCO-341111) dated December 2006. I wish to apply for SS176 under same category which is now ANZSCO 431111. Just want to know whether my original TRA assessments under ASCO code would be accepted by DIAC.

TRA assessments otherwise do not have any expiry date

If you have a look at the SOL lists you'll see reference to mapping across as they call it from ASCO to ANZSCO and so in first seeking a state nomination and then with your visa application you should use the ANZSCO code and I'd still contact TRA to see if they are issuing new assessments with an ANZSCO code and even with your assessment still current stress the date of it as an ANZSCO code assessment will not habe the potential hiccups that an ASCO code assessment could cause.

Electricians btw is a bit tricky if you didn't know for each state has their own registration requirements aside from nomination and that means you'll initially have to do an Australian Wiring Regulations course and then work under supervision for 12 months and when an employer sees that, many could baulk at the concept.
So could take a bit of getting work even after you attain a visa but a lot of work is going to be necessary for a long while with the extent of the flooding all over Australia at the moment and even talk that the government may need to do something to expedite getting tradies in but then they'll still need to address the registration requirements.

Thanks Wanderer

TRA wrote back saying the original assessments are acceptable. Even Victoria has replied, that they would accept the same.

We are unsure about DIAC. They still have to reply back.

I am aware about the post visa registration and regulations and not worried about it. My main concern is the validity and acceptability of Skills assessments as now the skills assessments from India are done by Vettassess but mine is from TRA

If it's all clear with TRA and the Vics re nomination, I'd reckon it'll be OK with Immi.
I saw reference by an agent whom I have great respect for in regard to TRA now to be doing all trade/technical assessments but not sure how that relates to different countries for now.
