All about the Provisional Skills Assessment (PSA)

The Provisional Skills Assessment (PSA) is a requirement before starting the Job Ready Program (JRP).

Trades Recognition Australia (TRA) will assess your Australian qualification(s) and provide you with a Provisional Skills Assessment (PSA) outcome.

If your occupation is on the skilled occupation list, your occupation is included in the Job Ready Program (JRP) pathway and a Provisional Skills Assessment (PSA) outcome is required to apply.

You will also need a Provisional Skills Assessment (PSA) outcome to apply for a Temporary Graduate Visa (Subclass 485).
