Sponsorship by an approved Temporary Activities Sponsor is required.
This stream requires a nomination by the sponsor to do one of the following activities in Australia:
Training required to obtain registration, membership or a licence to work in Australia or home country
Training in a CSOL occupation – in this case, the applicant must have worked full time in the occupation for at least 12 of the last 24 months
Up to 6 months of practical experience, research or observation is required to obtain an overseas qualification
Training supported by a government agency or the applicant’s home government
Occupational training would generally require at least 70% of the training to be on-the-job versus classroom training.
This would require you to be working overseas in a management or professional position. Training is primarily classroom training and would need to be in skills relevant to your position.
How do I apply?
The application must be lodged online. You can either be in Australia or overseas when lodging the application.
Can I Include Family Members?
Family members (spouses and children) can be included in your application.
