Skill Assessment

The foundation of all skilled immigration and employer-sponsored visa programs is skill assessment. For many visa subclasses, obtaining an appropriate skills assessment is required. We can assist you with having your skills evaluated in your relevant profession or occupation, such as ACS, CPA\IPA, TRA, VETASSESS, ANMAC/AHPRA, ACWA, Engineers Australia, etc.

Authorities that are responsible for assessing abilities typically provide assessments to determine whether you meet the requirements to work in a certain occupation. All pertinent occupations under the four occupation categories are listed in the consolidated list of eligible skilled occupations.

You can Check that which Authority provide Skill Assessment for you profession by clicking here.



These are the procedures to take if you have finished your trade certification and would like your skills evaluated:


As part of the PSA, TRA will verify your identification, the legitimacy of your Australian qualification, and the fact that you are performing a variety of jobs related to your nominated occupation in an Australian workplace. A temporary graduate visa (subclass 485) can be applied for through Home Affairs with a successful PSA outcome. It is necessary to have a successful PSA outcome in order to apply for the JRP's Step 2 JRE.


To qualify for a PSA, you need to have:

  • Held a primary visa (international student) to study in Australia
  • A qualification relevant to an occupation assessed by TRA and awarded by a CRICOS RTO as a result of study in Australia
  • Proof of at least 360 hours of employment and/or a vocational placement relevant to your qualification and nominated occupation, completed in an Australian workplace, within the three years before filing a PSA application

Documents required for 360 hours and the Provisional Skill Assessment:

  1. Passport (all pages)
  2. One Passport Size Photograph
  3. Australian Qualification
  4. Proof of 360 hours worked and/or a vocational placement pertinent to your qualifications
  5. Employer's business advertisement on a local website, such as the True Local, White Pages, or Yellow Pages.


After the assessment and verification procedure, you will receive an email informing you of the status of your PSA application. You can submit the outcome letter with your 485 visa application to Home Affairs if your assessment is approved.
Important Note: Please register yourself as soon as possible for (Step-2) Job Ready Employment through the Online Portal after receiving your successful PSA outcome, being granted a 485 visa, filing a visa application, or holding a bridging visa (with all rights).


To qualify for Job Ready Employment, candidates must obtain employment in the occupation of their choice, enter their employment through the online portal, and give TRA the necessary registration paperwork.


  • Have obtained a favourable PSA result.
  • Have less than four months left on your study permit.
  • Possess or have submitted an application to Home Affairs for a visa that grants complete (unrestricted) work rights and enough time (at least 12 months) to finish Steps 2–4 of the JRP.
  • Got a proper job.


In your designated occupation, you must work at least 1725 hours of paid work over a minimum of 12 calendar months from your JRE Start Date. The 1725 hours do not include leave periods, including paid leave. Making a claim about previous employment: Up to three months of consecutively paid work that you completed right before submitting an online application for JRE are eligible to be claimed. This is only redeemable at the moment of online JRE application submission.

Previous employment will only be taken into account in the following cases:

  • Conducted in your designated occupation with the first employer with whom you applied for JRE.
  • Completed during the three months just before submitting your online JRE application.
  • Not previously employed to fulfil the labour demands for your PSA application.
  • Backed by proof of appropriate compensation.
