Can I be classed as an Automotive Electrician?
For Australian Emigration purposes an Automotive Electrician is classed as somebody who installs, maintains and repairs electrical components in motor vehicles. The occupation code for an Automotive Electrician is 321111 and as you would expect the requirements to trade as an Automotive Electrician are just as stringent as they are here in the UK.
The official jargon from the Australian Government states that to emigrate as an Automotive Electrician you must have a skill commensurate with the qualifications and experience in Australia of AQF Certificate III including at least two years of on-the-job training, or AQF Certificate IV (ANZSCO Skill Level 3). At least three years of relevant experience may substitute for the formal qualifications listed above. In some instances relevant experience and/or on-the-job training may be required in addition to the formal qualification.
What this actually means is that if you’ve been through either college /apprenticeship or a have a degree this should be enough. In terms of college either the City & Guilds or NVQ Level 3 should suffice to achieve parity as an Automotive Electrician. Talk to us about your unique situation.
