Australian Skills Assessment Assessing Authority List – 2021

Australian Skills Assessment Authority Contact Details

An Australian Skills assessment is required if you are looking to emigrate to Australia under one of the skilled Visa workstreams. In simple terms, a skills assessment ensures that the qualifications and experience you say you have actually existed. This is a key governance step undertaken by the Australian government as part of the Australian Migration process.

To help support the Australian government with this process, they have partnered with a number of accredited organisations who will be responsible for undertaking a skills assessment on their behalf.

These organisations are referred to as the Assessing Authority on the various skills occupations lists you may come across.

The skills assessment involves assessing your qualifications and employment against the suitability of your nominated occupation. A positive assessment of both qualifications and employment is required for a successful skills assessment for migration purposes

If you look at our skilled occupations lists, you will note that the assessing body is referenced within both the MLTSS or STSOL lists. The assessing body (indicated in most cases as an acronym) is the assessing authority responsible for completing the skills assessment for each occupation.

Due to the sheer number of different occupations that can be used to qualify for a skilled Australian Visa, the number of assessing bodies is equally vast.

As such we have provided a listing of all of the current assessing authorities with their full names and contact details so you can further explore the process, forms, and fees for each assessing body.

If we have missed any of the assessing bodies used to complete an Australian skills assessment, please let us know by either using the report function or a comment at the end of this article.

  1. Hi Mark

    Believe you are missing authorites which regulate respiratory and sleep scientists. I think these are ANZRSA and ANZSS.

    1. Hey there – I can’t find either of these referenced – Can you expand on your source for this info – Happy to update but I was unable to confirm through my sources. Thank you for reaching out and helping us keep our information up to date!

  2. Hi Mark, I note that IML is one of the assessing authorities. Are you able to tell me the full name of the organisation.
    Thanks, Claudine

  3. Hey Mark! I’m having issues locating a skills assessment for the 189 visa as a trades painter, which is a listed job thats in high demand as far as i understand. Is there a link you can throw my way or point me in the right direction?

  4. Hi Mark, I work for the high commission here in Port Moresby- Papua New Guinea as a Driver/Admin Assistant(LES) and would like find a job as well in Australia and migrate. I had the opportunity to drive for the Australian PM during APEC and like to know more how to go through this process. Thank you- George English

      1. Thank you mark.
        I meant as a driver- I can drive a bus(30seater), truck(3-6tons) and regular 1 ton.
        My Driving licence here covers the 3 above locally- what is the standard in the Australia and how do I qualify.

        Sincerely ,
        George English

        1. Thanks for the clarity George but unfortunately you will still be faced with the same challenges. The occupations lists I linked to below details the occupations currently considered in demand here in Australia.

          These are the only occupations that qualify for an Australian Visa at the moment so you need to have experience in one of the occupations on this list.

          As there are no driving related occupations on the current list you will not currently qualify.

          Note that the list is usually updated a couple of times a year so this position may change in the future.



  5. Hi.

    Where can i get more information regarding Vetasses Technical interview questions for Anzsco code 342313 Electronic Equipment Trades worker?

    1. Hi Toinette, I’m unable to point you to a source unfortunately as these questions are not frequently published. As I understand it, they are the same types of questions you would expect to be asked if you were applying for a job as an Electronic Equipment Trades worker.

        1. G’day Paul, please can you expand on your question? What do you mean by “repeated questions’?



          1. Hi Mark. I am going to attend electronics equipment trade workers Vetassess interview. I need help on what questions will be asked?

          2. Hi mate, having never been interviewed by Vetaccess, I can’t really help you here I’m afraid! With that said, hopefully someone will see your comment who has and will provide some tips for you.

            Best of luck!
