Painting Trades Workers - Tasmanian Onshore Skilled Occupation List 
The caveat related to Painting Trades Workers has been updated: Employer must have operated in Tasmania for at least three years or candidate must have been employed in Tasmania for 12 months

The following further information has bee provided in regards to the information.

 Employment related to skills assessment

 In-course work placements completed as part of a course of study are not recognised in relation to this requirement. Work placements of over 400 hours are recognised for an Orange priority attribute in the Tasmanian Skilled Graduate pathway. 

  • Gold priority attribute – employment and skills assessment related to critical role

 Where a Gold priority attribute states “Skills assessment and related employment included in Critical Roles list”, that employment must have been for at least the immediate 3 months prior to registering interest, and must be ongoing at the time the candidate applies for nomination. 

 *Retail supervisor and management positions will be considered and weighted in the Established Resident pathway where the duties are consistent with at least ANZSCO Skill Level 4 Retail Supervisor 

 Multiple courses of study can be combined to meet the 92-week requirement in the Tasmanian Skilled Graduate category only where those courses are combined or result in the award of one overall qualifications. For example, a combined Certificate III/IV Commercial Cookery that lasts 92 weeks is acceptable. Enrolment in all courses must have occurred at the same time and Confirmations of Enrolment issued together. 

There must be no break between courses other than standard term breaks. There must also be a genuine progression between all courses in the package. 

An example may be a Graduate Certificate in Public Policy followed by a Graduate Diploma in Public Policy .It would not meet the requirement where a graduate completed and graduated from a Diploma of Leadership and Management, then separately enrolled in and completed an Advanced Diploma of Leadership and Management.

Note that graduates who have lived in Tasmania for 3 years may be eligible for subclass 190 nomination in the Tasmanian Established Resident Pathway. 

 Where a contract has not been entered into (eg, casuals who do not have a formal contract), applicants will need to provide evidence of the job offer and that all pay and conditions are consistent with the National Employment Standards (NES) and any awards, enterprise agreements or other registered agreements that may apply.
