Application & Assessment Process

To obtain an Australian qualification, you must supply evidence of:

To show that you meet the requirements of the Australian Training Package for the relevant qualification.

The Australian Training Package specifies the skills and knowledge required to work effectively in your nominated occupation and how these skills and knowledge need to be applied to meet industry standards in the workplace.


The Application and Assessment Process

(Note that evidence of part-time employment can be considered on a pro-rata basis).

If you are undertaking your assessment within Australia you will need to obtain a Unique Student Identifier (USI) number.

Step 2: Submitting your Application

Step 3 – Assessment of Documentary Evidence

A qualified and experienced MiB assessor will review your portfolio of documentary evidence, verify the information provided and map the evidence provided against the current Australian qualifications and standards.

At this time MiB will also provide you with log-in details to our on-line Learning Management System and access to the following information: Apply OHS requirements, policies and procedures in the construction industry

If you are assessed as meeting the relevant Australian standard you will be notified that you are eligible to proceed to the next assessment stage, Technical and Practical Assessment.

If you are assessed as not meeting the relevant Australian standard you will be notified and you may apply for a review of the assessment, an appeal of the assessment outcome or a re-assessment of your application.

Step 4 – Technical and Practical Assessment

If you are notified as being eligible to proceed to the next stage of assessment and you wish to proceed (and make payment of the relevant fee), the MiB assessor will conduct an assessment of the currency of your skills and your competency for your nominated occupation through a combination of on-line questioning and interview and, if necessary, further information may be requested from your employment and training referees.

At this time you will also be assessed against your knowledge of the information provided to you at the Documentary Assessment stage, Apply OHS requirements, policies and procedures in the construction industry.

If necessary, you will be required to undertake a practical demonstration of your skills using appropriate tools and equipment. Please note that you will be required to provide your own Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and any tools and equipment required for the practical demonstration. Failure to provide your own PPE, tools and equipment at the practical demonstration can result in re-scheduling the practical demonstration and additional fees may apply.

Following the completion of the Technical Assessment (including any practical demonstration) the MiB assessor will prepare a detailed report of the assessment noting the assessment outcome and reasons for the decision.

Step 5 – Outcomes

If you are assessed as successful MiB will issue you with:

  • A skilled migration outcome letter for presentation with  your visa application; and
  • A Certificate III Australian qualification in your nominated occupation

If you are assessed as unsuccessful MiB will issue you with:

  • A statement of Attainment for units of competency successfully achieved; and
  • A letter outlining outlining areas of competency not yet achieved and advice on gap training.

If you are assessed as unsuccessful you may apply for a review of the assessment, an appeal of the assessment outcome or a re-assessment of your application.
