PATHWAY 1 - Applicants who do not have a relevant Australian qualification
There are four steps under this assessment process for applicants who do not have a relevant Australian qualification:
1) Select MIBT as your TRA-approved RTO
2) Submit your documentary evidenceYou must submit decision ready* documentary evidence of your identity, skills and experience. MIBT will advise you what documentation is required. If the evidence indicates that you have the necessary skills and experience relevant to your nominated occupation, you will be invited to participate in a technical assessment with one ofMIBT's assessors.
“Decision ready*” means:
a) all documents requested by MIBT are provided when an application is lodged
b) employment statements conform to the requirements set out in the applicant guidelines
3) Technical assessmentYou will be required to participate in a technical assessment of your skills and knowledge. MIBT Assessors are qualified Australian trades professionals as well as qualified building industry trainers.
The assessor will focus on collecting evidence to determine if you meet the requirements of the relevant Australian Training Package qualification. This will involve a technical interview and may involve a practical demonstration of your skills and/or gathering evidence from third parties (e.g. your employers or other referees).
MIBT will discuss the assessment requirements with you prior to conducting the assessment. If during the technical assessment, MIBT's trainer / assessor identifies any gaps in your skills and experience, they will discuss any training options that may be available you. All technical assessments will be conducted in English without assistance. Interpreters are NOT permitted.
4) Receive TRA-approved outcomeIf successful, you will receive a skilled migration outcome letter. This can be presented to the Department of Home Affairs (Home Affairs) with your visa application. Non-licensed occupation applicants will be awarded the relevant Australian trade qualification.
Applicants who wish to progress to a current, identified Australian occupational licence and/or be awarded the relevant Australian qualification, must undertake further Australian context training and a period of supervised employment in Australia. The training covers Australian-specific knowledge such as workplace health and safety regulations, codes of practice and other Australian standards.
