Carpenter requirements

In Australia:

AQF Certificate III including at least two years of on-the-job training, or AQF Certificate IV (ANZSCO Skill Level 3)

At least three years of relevant experience may substitute for the formal qualifications listed above. In some instances relevant experience and/or on-the-job training may be required in addition to the formal qualification.
Registration or licensing may be required.


hi everyone , this may seem like a stupid question but I don't want to do anything wrong. I just want to clarify that the above means that you don't need a certificate or degree if you have more than 3 years work experience? Also how do I find out if licensing will be required? the occupation is carpenter.
thank you

You would have to provide satisfactory evidence that the work experience was on the same level as that of someone with formal qualifications.

You still need a positive skills assessment.

No licensing required as such and not an immigration requirement, but most States now have a licensing system for tradespeople who want to work as independent contractors.
