    Australian Exams

    Hi all,
    I am moving to Australia shortly from the UK and was wondering if anyone had any experience of the AECOP exams that you now have to sit. Are they difficult etc. etc.?

    re: Australian Exams

    Hello Wayne, u should be able to find some addresses on this site that u will need the initiate the process: http://www.physiobase.com/library/ar...5800A0CC611A45
    It is lengthy, rather expensive and not easy. If have put u off, just remeber that you are going to one of the best countries on the globe!
    They keep changing the rules and it has now become a lot harder for UK physios too. For me (netherlands) it existed of a theory, technical ability and practical exam.
    Theory is 300 multiple guess questions, TAE is 1,5 hours and u show that u know what to do and what NOT to do, all about safe practice etc. Practical is 3 hours, 1 hour each for; musculoskeletal, neuro and cardiothoracic.

    re: Australian Exams

    Have you investigated registering in New Zealand and then transferring registration to Aus by the Trans-Tasman Mutual Recognition agreement - Don't know if it's still an option but you used to be able to do this and bypass the exam system. The CSP should have all the details on their web site - www.csp.org.uk

    There seems to be an increasing number of Recruitment Agencies in Australia who might be able to help. And good luck - it will be worth it. I know of a NZ agency that can help if this is of interest. Email me if I can help. Bernard Morrison. Locum Group.

    re: Australian Exams

    Apparently the Trans Tasman loophole has now been closed so you cannot get in that way. If anyone is looking for sponsorship for the exams and willing to sign up for a years work if they pass the exams then email me

    You will have to work through the following steps to gain registration
    and work in Australia.

    1. Access the Aecop website www.uq.net.au\aecop (please note the forward slash before aecop). Click on Eligibility and Skills Assessment Forms
    Down load PDF form.

    2. Fill out form and return it to Aecop.
    AECOP
    PO Box 371
    Indooroopilly
    QLD 4068
    Australia

    3. Await advice from Aecop as to what is required from you. This will most probably involve examinations and will take some time.

    4. Once you have AECOP registration, you will have to apply to the registration board in the state you wish to work.

    5. Obtain a working visa from the Australian Embassy in your capital city.

    6. Keep in contact with The Placement Company as to your progress.

    We will begin a recruitment search as your registration clearance nears.

    Let us know if you require any further details.
