Step 4 - JRFA

The Job Ready Final Assessment (JRFA) is the final step of the JRP. When you have successfully completed Steps 1, 2 and 3 of the Job Ready Program you will be eligible to apply for a JRFA.

A successful JRFA provides you with a skills assessment outcome, which can be used to support an application to the Department of Home Affairs for an independent skilled migration visa.

Detailed information about the JRFA is provided in Section 2.4. of the Job Ready Program Applicant Guidelines (Guidelines). You must read the Guidelines before submitting a JRFA application.


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

  • a successful Provisional Skills Assessment outcome (Step 1)
  • a successful Job Ready Workplace Assessment outcome (Step 3)

and provided TRA with:

  • acceptable pay evidence to substantiate that you have been in  paid employment for at least 1725 hours over a minimum of 12 months from your JRE start date
  • Quarterly Progress Reports, Employment Verification Report, and any monthly journals submitted prior to 10 July 2019 covering a minimum of six months of employment.


How to apply

Following advice from TRA that you are eligible for a JRFA, you need to sign in to the online portal and select the Job Ready Final Assessment link. You must complete the Job Ready Final Assessment Summary Page and pay the $150 application fee.

When you have completed the online submission, select the Submit and Print button to submit your application details and print the Summary Page. (Do not select the print option on your computer.)

Please note: You are not formally registered for a JRFA until your application document is received (by email) and registered by TRA.
