Australian Recognised Trade Certificate (ARTC): Replacement ARTCs no longer issued

Trades Recognition Australia (TRA) is no longer issuing replacement Australian Recognised Trade Certificates (ARTCs).

ARTC holders who have misplaced or damaged their ARTC can request verification of their ARTC outcome from TRA. The following information must be provided with the request:

  • full name;

  • date of birth;

  • TRA reference number/ARTC reference number;

  • the jurisdiction the ARTC was issued in (ACT, NSW, etc.)

  •  approximate date of issue (month and year)

  •  the trade that is registered on the ARTC

  • current address

  • current contact details

  • current photographic identification (e.g. Australian driver's licence, passport, etc.).

Where an applicant's details are listed in the ARTC register, TRA will issue a formal confirmation that an ARTC was granted to the applicant in a specified trade.

Requests should be emailed to TRA at traenquiries [at] education.gov.au.
