Skill Assessment

Skill Assessment

Assessing your abilities forms the cornerstone of any visa application tied to an employer’s sponsorship. Many visa categories necessitate a thorough evaluation of your skills, and we specialize in aiding you through this process in your primary field or profession, be it ACS, CPAIPA, TRA, VETASSESS, ANMAC/AHPRA, ACWA, Engineers Australia, or another relevant authority.

Typically, skilled assessment professionals conduct evaluations to ensure your capabilities align with the standards required for significant roles. The comprehensive list of qualified and skilled occupations encompasses all positions falling within the four job categories.

Stage 1 – Provisional Skills Assessment


Through the PSA, TRA conducts an identity verification and validates the authenticity of your Australian qualifications. They also confirm your engagement in a range of job-related tasks within an Australian work setting. A successful PSA outcome (subclass 485) from Home Affairs can secure you a Temporary Graduate visa. An outstanding PSA result is a prerequisite before pursuing Step 2 JRE of the JRP application


  • To be able to get a PSA, you should:
  • Held an international student visa (primary visa holder) to study in Australia.
  • TRA looks at a skill necessary for a job and gives it to a CRICOS RTO because it is focused on Australia.
  • Proof that you did at least 360 hours of business or a professional situation related to your skills and chosen job in an Australian workplace in the three years before you submitted your PSA application.
  • Provisional Skill Assessment/360 Hours:
  • Identification (all pages)
  • One photo the size of a passport
  • Qualifications in Australia
  • Notice the business on a nearby site, like Genuine nearby, White Pages, or Yellow Pages.


Appraisal Outcome:

After the evaluation and confirmation process, the result of your PSA application will be sent to you by email. If your evaluation goes well, you can send the result letter to Home Affairs as part of your application for a 485 visa.

Important Note: Once you get a “Successful PSA Outcome” and are on a “485 Visa” or have a “held up visa application” or are holding a “Bridging Visa” (with full rights), you should sign up as soon as possible for “Step 2: Job Ready Employment” through the online portal, if it’s not too much trouble.
