Visa applicants or their appointed representatives are responsible for having their skills assessed, as required, by a designated skills assessing authority. The downloadable table lists the skills assessing authorities for each occupation under the GV DAMA.
It is not the responsibility of the GV DAR to certify the skills or experience of any visa applicant under the DAMA program. Applicants or their appointed representative must deal directly with the relevant skills assessing authority and not the DAR for skills assessment certification.
