Riggers - oil & gas
HI MY HUSBAND HAS GOT HIS VISA THROUGH HIS BRICKLAYING TRADE. BUT HE HAS DONE RIGGING OVER THE PAST 10 YEARS AND WONDERED WOULD HIS NVQ LEVEL 2 (DIPLOMA) BE RECOGNIZED IN AUSTRALIA? OR WOULD HE NEED TO GET A TRA CERTIFICATE BEFORE WE COME OVER?
OUR VISA HAD TO BE ADELAIDE AS THAT WAS THE ONLY LIST FOR BRICKLAYERS, DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THERE IS MUCH RIGGING WORK IN ADELAIDE (OIL REFINERIES OR CONSTRUCTION SITES)?
WE WENT THROUGH AN EMIGRATION COMPANY TO GET OUR VISA AND THEY SAID TO GO DOWN THE BRICKLAYING RATHER THAN RIGGER ROUTE FOR VISA, SO WE DID BUT NOW QUESTIONING IF THAT WAS THE RIGHT THING TO DO!
ANY ADVICE WOULD BE GREAT
Sorry i meant to type nvq level 3 rigger (moving loads)
Dogging and Rigging are high risk work categories and need a nationally recognised licence, both can be covered two 6 day courses at local training centres, which is probably quicker and easier than trying to get uk qualifications recognised, have a look at worksafe sa and SEEK for jobs and info
