Licence Recognition

Mutual recognition for occupational licences in Australia. Makes it easier for licensed tradespeople, and authorities that issue licences, to know what licence a worker is entitled to when applying for a licence in another jurisdiction. The site allows you to look up a licence entitlement in another state or territory, based on your currently-held licence. The site also has information on who to contact to apply for a licence.
