hi pete just finished working on the new persimmon site near the ping factory,its only an hours or so drive from where i live in hull
We have had our visa granted and are just waiting for the sale of our house then we will be off. My Husband is a gas fitter/plumber and we have been looking into work and it seems hard to get a lisence to be able to work without supervision. He has all of his qualifications and 13 years experiance but has been told he will have to go to night school for 2 years to be at the australian standard even though he passed the TRA with no problems. We e-mailed the South Australian goverment and asked if he could be doing anything at this side to be helping and they said no not till you get here. Apparently the goverment are looking into skilled migrants having these problems and they are looking into solving the problem but god knows when.
Hopefully it will be sorted out for when we get there.
When are you hoping to go?
Just reading your post and I'd have to agree with the problems plumbers are facing here. A previous guest of mine called round yesterday and was totally pi**ed off with the lack of communication between gov departments and also the fact that he has to go back to college for something he's already qualified and experienced in.

He's now decided not to persue plumbing here but to train in a security job instead. Its better paid and feels he'll be more respected, as now he's just treated like an apprentice.
