Trades Recognition Service
Why choose the Trades Recognition Service (TRS)?
Not all qualifications are equal
The TRS can give you the security of an Australian vocational education and training (VET) qualification that validates your skills and is accepted by Australian industry.
The TRS offers quality skills assessments that are:
industry endorsed - Australian industry supports and recognises Australia-wide qualifications issued through the TRS;
delivered by Trades Recognition Australia (TRA) approved registered training organisations (RTOs) who exclusively issue a VET qualification that bears the TRA approved logo;
validated by the TRA logo, which represents industry acceptance - the holder of the certificate is recognised as possessing the same skills and knowledge equivalent to an Australian-trained tradesperson; and
the only industry endorsed pathway outside of an Australian apprenticeship to national occupational licensing (nominated trades only).

The TRS provides skills assessments via recognition of prior learning by RTOs approved by TRA. Skills assessments are available in a range of automotive, metal and electrical occupations.
TRS skills assessments are for applicants who seek formal recognition of their trade skills for employment purposes and/or to access occupational licensing.
