Four licensed trades moved to OSAP.

If you are seeking a skills assessment in a licensed occupation listed below, it is now mandatory for you to have your skills assessed under the Offshore Skills Assessment Program (OSAP):

• Airconditioning and Refrigeration Mechanic
• Electrician (General)
• Electrician (Special Class)
• Plumber (General)

You are no longer eligible for assessment under the TRA Migration Skills Assessment Program.

OSAP assessments are conducted by registered training organisations approved by Trades Recognition Australia (TRA approved RTO) located in Australia and in locations around the world. TRA-approved RTOs offering skills assessment services for the licensed trades can be found through the RTO Finder on the TRA website (
Successful OSAP applicants receive an outcome letter for migration and an Offshore Technical Skills Record (OTSR) to meet state and territory licensing requirements.
If there is no assessment centre in your country of residence, you are required to travel to the nearest TRA approved RTO assessment centre in your geographic region for a skills assessment. You should ensure the assessment centre you choose offers skills assessments in your nominated occupation before starting a skills assessment process.
