Commercial Projects Offshore Skills Assessments
In response to the critical skills and labour
shortages in Western Australia, agencies sourcing
skilled international labour have engaged ETI to
conduct practical offshore skills assessment to
  • Assess skills and knowledge against
  • Australian standards
  • Deliver gap training where necessary
  • Issue Australian qualifications where
  • applicable

9
Offshore Skills Assessment Quality Assurance
  • ETI ensures the quality and integrity of
    Australian qualifications by
  • Using qualified, experienced Australian
  • assessors
  • Using AQTF compliant tools and
  • procedures
  • Ensuring assessment venues and
  • equipment are AQTF compliant

Through ETIs offshore skills assessment service
employers can be confident the skills and
abilities of these overseas applicants meet
Australian workplace standards.

Offshore Skills Assessment Example
  • With Moves International, ETI using the capacity
    of TAFEWA, has conducted a number of offshore
    skills assessments for 457 long stay business
    visa candidates
  • 20 welders in Bangladesh
  • 70 chefs in Bangladesh and Nepal
  • These workers are currently in the process of
    migrating to Australia
  • Future assessments for our international clients
    in India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal and Russia
    include
  • Automotive Mechanics
  • Construction workers
  • Nurses

Offshore Skills Assessment Consortium (VETASSESS)
  • The consortium members are
  • Education and Training International
  • representing Swan, South West
  • and Great Southern TAFEs
  • Kangan Batman Institute
  • Victoria University
  • Box Hill Institute
  • Gipps TAFE

The Council of Australian Governments (COAG)
agreed to assist States and Territories to
address skills shortages. A process was
developed to make it easier for migrants applying
in the general skilled migration scheme to work
as soon as they reach Australia.
In May 2007 five Australian colleges and
institutes including ETI representing TAFEWA
formed a consortium with VETASSESS as the lead
member.

Offshore Technical Skills Record

  • Refrigeration and Air-conditioning Mechanics
  • Cable jointers and Electrical Powerline
  • tradespeople

Holders of an OTSR are entitled to a provisional
license in their industry, subject to also

gain a full license, OTSR holders must undertake
gap training in Australia within a defined period.
