Applicants need to demonstrate that they have the necessary qualification (and work experience, if applicable) to perform the duties required for the nominated occupation.

The applicant must have the Skill qualification as listed on the ANZSCO list.

For example, the skills required for the occupation of a Mechanical Engineer (ANZSCO code: 33512) as indicated by the ANZSCO are as follow:

Most occupations in this unit group have a level of skill commensurate with a bachelor degree or higher qualification. In some instances relevant experience and/or on-the-job training may be required in addition to the formal qualification (ANZSCO Skill Level 1). Registration or licensing may be required.

Apart from the ANZSCO, many trade level positions on the CSOL will require the visa applicant to have successfully completed a TRA 457 skills assessment. Here is a link to the TRA 457 Skills assessment

Registration and Licensing

If the nominated occupation requires licensing or registration in Australia, the applicant needs to obtain the registration or licence, or demonstrate that they meet the requirements for registration or licensing in Australia.
