MIBT Skills Assessment Services


A skills assessment is required by the Department of Home Affairs, to determine if you have the skills and experience necessary to work in Australia at the trade level for your occupation.

Skills assessments are conducted against the requirements of the relevant training package qualification for the nominated occupation. This is achieved through the process of Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), where your existing skills and experience are mapped against units of competency contained within the required building qualification.

In addition to the skills assessment, MIBT can provide quality face-to-face, or on-line training to address any gaps uncovered through the assessment process.

 
MIBT values its reputation as a leader, in vocational education for the building and construction industry in Australia. Masters in Building Training assessors have a wealth of experience, working as builders in Australian conditions. They are intimately familiar with all levels of licensing and training requirements and have won numerous awards for their blended online and on-site training.

SKILLS MIGRATION VISA ELIGIBILTY


MIBT is able to assist with training for any skills gaps you might have in meeting Australian qualifications. However, irrespective of which visa you are applying for, in addition to your qualification you must be able to demonstrate work experience of at least three years full-time employment in a directly related occupation. This must include 12 months full-time paid employment in your nominated occupation in the three years prior to lodging your application. For applicants applying with a current identified Australian occupational licence the 12 months full-time paid employment must be in Australia.

* a current, identified Australian occupational licence is a registration certificate of other form of authorisation required under law to perform work that has been issued by the appropriate Australian licensing authority and is relevant to the nominated occupation.

If you are applying for a skills assessment under the TSS Skills Assessment Program you should read the TSS Applicant Guidelines before proceeding.

If you are applying for a skills assessment under the Offshore Skills Assessment Program you should read the OSAP Applicant Guidelines before proceeding.
