Hi I am a time served City & Guilds Qualified Plumbing and Heating Engineer living in the UK, but with a Visa to live in Oz. I have Gas Qualification in Domestic & Commercial Installs, Unvented Water and Solar Qualifications though I know that they will probably count for nothing in Queensland. I have actually employed and Aussie Plumber for my own Business for the last 9 years and his qualifications were transferable to the UK. Is this the case in Australia or would I have to go through the fully Licencing drama? Secondly, if arriving as an 'unskilled' Plumber with all the flood damage at the moment would I find getting work easier and what rates would I expect as Unskilled and then how much when qualified? I would like t0 leave soon-ish but would love some advice!
