There are different assessing bodies to evaluate the suitability of different occupations. For example, if an applicant wants to get a skills assessment for an Accounting degree, either CPA, CA or IPA can provide this assessment. For some occupations, work experience is mandatory upon completion of the degree or qualification while for others this may not be compulsory.
It is the applicant’s responsibility to obtain the required skills assessment. Each assessing body will have its own assessment process, procedures, criteria, timeframes and charges.
We understand how important getting a positive skills assessment is to apply for eligible visas. We also know how complicated the process can be when lodging an application for the first time. That’s why our pool of experienced registered migration agents is here to assist you through the entire process from reparing the documents to lodging the assessment application and eventually receiving a positive outcome.
