Step 3 - JRWA

The purpose of the JRWA is to determine whether you are operating at the required skill level in an Australian workplace for your nominated occupation.

The JRWA is conducted in your workplace by an assessor from a TRA-approved registered training organisation. The assessment will focus on the activities you have been required to perform during your employment as recorded in your Job Ready Journal.


To be eligible for a JRWA, you must have provided your TRA Liaison Officer (TRA LO) with:

  • acceptable pay evidence to support at least 863 hours of paid employment over a minimum of six months that has been registered via the online portal and approved by TRA

  • Job Ready Journals for a minimum of six months that have been signed by your nominated supervisor and approved by TRA

Once your TRA LO has reviewed your documentation and is satisfied that you are eligible to apply for a JRWA, they will contact you to confirm you can submit your application online. 

How to apply

You must complete all the mandatory fields, and pay the application fee, through the Online Portal. Application documents must be emailed to within 30 working days of the online submission date for the application to be registered. Documents must be provided as a single PDF attachment.
