    Hi Dean

     

    As far as I know you will need a license - if your are employed or self employed.

    You can work supervised for employers while obtaining the license though.

     

    That's all I know,sure someone else will have more than me.

     

    Welcome to the forum BTW :)

    Hi Dean

     

    If you work as an employee then no you don't need a licence your employer will sign your work off. If you decided to work for yourself or even do the odd weekend work as a back hander then yes you need a licence. If you are found working without a licence you can be fined up to $20,000

     

    have a look at this

    hi just to say although employers will take you on without a licence and sign off your work this is not really correct tradesmen are reqiured to have licences even to be an apprentice and progressing to an qualifed employee and these licences do have requirements. to work for yourself you do need a seperate licence.

    Hi all, just wondering if anyone knows of an employer who would sponser/offer employment in the joining/carpenter trade. My brother in law was made redundant recently and has decided he would like to try living here. Hes been in the trade for approx 30yrs and has already started the process by contacting a migrant agent. I said i would ask if anyone would be able to assist.

    Many thanks.
