Hi All,

Looking to revive an age-old subject here by the looks of it...

I have seen a few threads that go back several years now regarding Locksmiths looking to get positive skills assessments/Aussie visas, but the fact that a formal qualification is required seems to be a big stumbling block... as in the UK there is no formal qualification, and certainly not one equivalent to AQFIII.

Does anyone have any updates on this? Have there been any allowance in the rules in the last few years for this profession? Are UK locksmiths getting positive skills assessments at all?

Thanks in advance for your inputs guys.

Thanks for this mate.

Yeah, I have seen that caveat regarding the experience taking the place of the qualification, but this does seem a general statement applied to all occupation codes and the last I heard locksmiths were struggling to get positive skills assessments.

Anyone know of any locksmiths to get positive Skills Assessments with the TRA?

Thanks,
Gav

Well its a fact that a Locksmith doesn't need any educational certificate but as the technologies are getting advanced, lots of new locks has been introduced.so better is to join any training course teaching advanced locksmith service. like my friend serving as a locksmith .
