You will need to provide the following supporting evidence with your completed application form:
a high-resolution colour copy of the identity page of your current valid passport
a high-resolution colour copy of your evidence of change of name (if your documents contain names other
than those that appear on your passport)
a signed and dated letter from Trades Recognition Australia (TRA) confirming your successful completion of
either Step 1 or Step 4 of the Job Ready Program (JRP)
a signed and formally witnessed applicant’s declaration (section 5 of this application form) and formally
witnessed authorised representative’s declaration (if applicable) (section 6 of this application form).
Your application cannot be assessed by ACECQA until all of these documents are received. Please contact
ACECQA on 1300 422 327 if you would like to discuss these requirements.
You may nominate an authorised representative to prepare, submit and speak to ACECQA on your behalf. All
correspondence from ACECQA will be sent to both you and your authorised representative. The Authorised
Representative Declaration and Consent Form ensures that your representative understands that providing
false or misleading information is an offence and that all information they provide is true and correct to the best
of their knowledge.
If you disagree with the outcome of your assessment you can request a review. The basis of your request for a
review will determine whether you need to formally submit a review application and pay the associated fee.
We recommend applicants call their case officer to discuss their assessment outcome before submitting a
review application. Your case officer will discuss the outcome of your assessment and advise the additional
evidence required to review your application.
Reviews are assessed and approved by different ACECQA representatives to the original application. For further
information on the review process please refer to our website.
