Vision Statement

It is the chief aspiration of Trade Skills Australia to establish itself as the industry benchmark for delivering the most relevant, compliant, highest standard, of service for quality assessing in our very own sector of the VET industry. That being said, our organisation accordingly seeks to achieve this goal by letting the superior quality of our service and work speak for itself. As such, Trade Skills Australia will always strive to be the best at what we do at all times.
On a separate note, in addition to our organisation’s main vision mentioned above, Trade Skills Australia also seeks to fulfil the current skill shortages in the Australian workforce by delivering genuine and intensive skills assessment services to highly-skilled workers employed both here and abroad, in the hopes of attracting them to practice and develop their mechanical engineering skills and expertise here in Australia. As an organisation, it is one of the highest objectives of Trade Skills Australia to assist international engineers in giving them a viable migration pathway to our country through skills recognition and assessment.

Mission Statement

It is the main mission of Trade Skills Australia to provide excellent and intensive skills assessment services to non-qualified but skilled workers in the engineering space, both nationally and internationally, to help them gain better employment opportunities within Australia.
Founded by real Australian tradespeople for other tradespeople, Trade Skills Australia believes in delivering good old-fashioned genuine service to our clients without any unnecessary drama or nonsense. In keeping with this principle, Trade Skills Australia will always tirelessly seek to provide our clients with a clearer and faster way to earn their engineering qualifications via a more practical and holistic RPL assessment process that only we as an industry expert-driven and professional company can deliver.
Additionally, in line with our ongoing pursuit to help fulfil the existing skills shortages in the Australian workforce, Trade Skills Australia will also continuously strive to pave a viable migration pathway for international engineers to move to our country by affording them with the opportunity to get their trade skills and professional eligibilities officially assessed and recognised in Australia.
