Job Ready Final Assessment (JRFA)

On this page

The JRFA is part of the Job Ready Program (JRP). The purpose of this step is to recognise your completion of the JRP.

You can use your successful JRFA skills assessment to apply for a skilled visa with Home Affairs.

Current processing times for the JRFA outcome:

1.5 Months from application

To be eligible to apply for a JRFA, you must have:

  • achieved a successful JRWA outcome and
  • completed a minimum of 12 months of full-time paid employment (or equivalent part-time employment) within TRA approved employment.

This evidence must be reviewed and accepted by TRA.

After verifying your employment evidence, TRA will email you when you are eligible to apply for your JRFA. Please be aware that you should not consider the JRP completed until you have received the official outcome letter. It is important to maintain your employment arrangements until you have received the official JRFA outcome letter which confirms your successful outcome.

Read our guidelines

Before you apply, you should read Section 3.3 of the JRP Applicant Guidelines.


Please see Section 2 of the JRP Applicant Guidelines.
