Latest Developments:

Variation to assessment fee charges from Wednesday, 1 August 2018

With effect from 1 August 2018, William Angliss Institute is introducing the new assessment fee structure for Pathway 1 and Pathway 2 skills assessment.

In summary, all onshore skills assessments will attract the 10% GST component. This means from 1 August 2018 onwards, candidates who are assessed onshore in Australia will be charged an additional 10% GST to the assessment fee payment.

The base assessment fee rate for each assessment stage will be increased to reflect the additional processes required to finalise skills assessments and meet audit requirements.

The new fee schedule will be published on 1 August 2018, and affects all applications submitted on and after 1 August 2018.


New Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) visa subclass 482 introduced to replace Visa subclass 457

On 18 March 2018, the Department of Home Affairs replaced the Temporary Work (Skilled) visa (subclass 457) with the Temporary Skills Shortage (TSS) visa (subclass 482).

More information on this visa change can be found on the Home Affairs website at

Notification of upcoming change to the TSS and OSAP skills assessment programs

From 3 April 2018, TRA approved RTOs will forward a recommended outcome to Trades Recognition Australia (TRA) to make the final decision following completion of an applicant’s skills assessment.

If TRA agrees with the recommendation, the RTO will notify applicants of the outcome of their assessment and issue appropriate final documentation. If TRA does not agree with the recommendation, TRA and the RTO have 10 business days to reach agreement.

These changes will apply for the TSS Skills Assessment Program, Offshore Skills Assessment Program or Trades Recognition Service. Updated program guidelines will be available on 3 April 2018 on the TRA website (
