Painting Trades Worker Skills Assessment
Painters and Decorators migrating to Australia are required to complete a skills assessment through Trades Recognition Australia.
The Painting Trades Worker skills assessment is a paper based application. There is no Technical Interview or Practical assessment required.
Using a qualified and experienced Registered Migration Agent to prepare and process your application will increase your chances of a successful skills assessment.
Visa Go Australia will work with you to prepare the necessary documentation for lodgement with Trades Recognition Australia, who will review your training and employment evidence to ensure that you have either:
- 6 years employment experience as a Painter and Decorator with no formal training OR
- 3 years employment experience as a Painter and Decorator with relevant formal training
You will need to provide your qualification certificates as proof of formal training, and employment evidence must include at least 12 months in the last 3 years. Evidence may include documents such as wage slips, bank statements, employment references, etc. Visa Go Australia will advise you about what exactly is required and prepare these in readiness for assessment by TRA.
TRADES RECOGNITION AUSTRALIA FEE: AUD$720.00
Following a successful assessment, Trades Recognition Australia will issue you with:
- Skills Assessment Outcome letter
PLEASE NOTE: If you are a Painter and Decorator with no formal qualifications, but with a minimum of 6 years work experience, you will need to obtain an AQF Level 3 through Visa Go Australia by way of Recognition of Prior Learning.
Sue was amazing throughout, keeping us updated each step of the way, and providing detailed guidance at the start of each stage, which enabled us to start preparing and collating everything needed for the next part when the time came. Sue’s replies to the many emails that I've sent her way over the course of this process, were always prompt and patient, and nothing ever seemed to much trouble. Sue’s experience and understanding of the processes, timelines and the strict format in which things had to be done, meant that she was able to advise us and provide guidelines, which meant that when we submitted each stage, we were not having to worry about delays due to incomplete applications.
18 months on from that initial meeting - we have now been living and working in Australia for 8 months, and have recently changed onto a permanent visa.
We are extremely glad that we chose to work with Visa Go, and want to say a massive thank you to Sue, Darren and the team for all of their support and assistance throughout.
Darren always took the time to answer any questions and help me through the process.
Within weeks he had my partner visa submitted and now I have my permanent residency!
I couldn’t thank Darren and the team enough 👍
My case officer, Sue, has been very professional and knowledgeable throughout the process providing great customer service, from providing the documents required to promptly replying to all queries.
So, to Darren, Kimberley and Sue, thank you all for your support to achieve my Visa.
Our visa process took 11 months (as expected for the visa we applied for) and Sue kept us on track and up to date all the time, extremely organised and always happy to help and provide us with her support.
I highly recommend Visa Go Australia, we couldn't imagine trying to go through this process without Sues help and guidance. Samantha Mills

I would highly recommend anyone applying for a visa to do it through them.
They made sure we had all the information at every step of they way and nothing was ever a problem if I called or emailed.
Thank you so much to all of the team!
