If you are applying for a TRS skills assessment from 1 March 2019, you must pay fees for the assessment directly to TRA through the TRA Online Portal. Please see the Applicant Payment User Guide for processes for selecting a TRA approved registered training organisation (RTO), registering an account in the TRA Online Portal and making payments.

Before a payment can be made, you must select a TRA approved RTO to conduct your skills assessment through RTO Finder and talk to the RTO about whether you are eligible for a TRS skills assessment, the program requirements and confirm the location of your assessment.

When you have confirmed for your RTO that you wish to proceed with a skills assessment, you will be issued with an RTO Assessment Payment Identifier Code that can be used to make the payment in the TRA Online Portal.
