Job Ready Solutions are experts in the Job Ready Program Pathway. We do not source positions for Mechanics and ask that our clients source their own job.

Your Job Ready Program pathway starts with the Provisional Skills Assessment (PSA), which is a requirement for your 485 visa. Here is how Job Ready Solutions can help with this program:

  • Provisional Skills Assessment (PSA) - We verify your mechanic qualification and supporting documents, ensuring your PSA application is 'decision ready' and ensure a successful outcome.

Once you receive a successful PSA outcome, you are eligible to start the Job Ready Program (JRP). Here is how Job Ready Solutions can help with this program:

  • Job Ready Program (JRP) - We pre-verify your mechanic workplace to ensure it is eligible for the Job Ready Program. We register any new employers and complete the correct paperwork to finalise previous employers. We keep careful track of your progress and upload your payslips and supporting documents at the right time for your program. We provide our clients with a full setup leading up to the workplace assessment including what to expect and sample areas to revise for. We ensure that all required documentation is filled and submitted and you have fulfilled the required hours to be eligible for the JRFA. Once you receive a successful skills assessment outcome you can apply to Home Affairs for a skilled visa.
