By studying the correct Accredited Courses you could greatly increase your prospects of obtaining a work visa to Australia.
What is an Accredited Course?
An accredited course is a course that a skills assessment authority has already reviewed, deeming the course content and structure suitable to pass a skills assessment. Other documentation relating to work experience or previous education is generally not required to be submitted. This allows for a smooth and simple process for your skills assessment.
If you study a course that is not accredited by the skills assessment authority, you cannot be sure that it meets the requirement to pass the skills assessment. You may have to submit additional documentation regarding your education and work experience. If your course is not accredited, it may not meet the specific requirements of the skills assessor.

Jose is a student from Venezuela. He previously studied engineering at Griffith University before passing a skills assessment with Engineers Australia and obtaining a skilled independent permanent visa.
I want to thank PTA for everything they did for me. I went from a student visa to graduate visa to skilled independent permanent resident. They gave me the right advice, were always available to chat, talked me through the difficulties of the process, and assisted me to add my partner to my visa.
