Canterbury Skill Shortage List Changes

The Canterbury Skill Shortage List (CSSL) has been revised with effect from 6 August 2014.

Applicants with occupations on the CSSL need to meet to apply for a work visa using the CSSL. The changes affect these occupations:

  • Plumber (General)

  • Drainlayer – to reflect the requirement to be licensed or authorised by the Plumbers, Gasfitters and Drainlayers Board

  • Carpenter and Joiner – to clarify the requirements where a person is qualified for both occupations

  • Telecommunications Engineer – to update qualifications for the occupation.

The new requirements are available through the Skill shortage check list.
