Skill assessment is an integral part of the General Skilled Migration program which helps select immigrants with the right qualities to immigrate to Australia. The applicant will not be able to apply for permanent residency in the country without an assessment of the skills.
Under point-based immigration, the applicant must choose an occupation specified in the Occupational Demand List of Australia.

Every occupation in the list has its own skill assessing authority. Trade occupations are assessed by the TRA (Trade Recognition Australia) or the VETASSESS (Vocational Educational and Training Assessment Services) The Institute of Managers and Leaders (IML), through its entity IML National, is an assessing authority approved by the Department of Home Affairs for assessing immigration candidates who have applied for senior-level managers within Australia and New Zealand.
