Benchmark A and B – 457
Visa Training Requirements
If you are part of an organisation that recruits and
employs staff from overseas who are on 457 work visas,
then you may be aware of the training requirements put
in place by the government and the Migration Institute.
You may however have used a migration agent
to help you find the appropriate staff with the
right skills required for the job, so you might try
and communicate with the agent in relation to
this legal training requirement.
But the reality is that migration agents do one thing,
find overseas staff and process their 457
documentation, and they don’t specialise in
understanding the on-going training requirements that
you face as an employer, nor can they help find the
most appropriate training for each staff member which
will enhance their productivity and make them more
valuable assets to the business.
The migration agent might infer they can help with this
part of the process, but this is not their main focus.
Pdtraining, on the other hand, is the preferred
training supplier for the Migration Institute here
in Australia. Pdtraining has dedicated staff who
know and understand not only the legal
requirements of the Benchmark B 457 Training
requirements, but we know how to deliver
training that works!

Visa 457 Training Benchmark A
If you haven’t been training your existing staff, or

Benchmark A – which is the larger investment in training.

may be able to submit a training plan – showing your

existing Australian staff, and have a training plan
for continued training. The Visa Training Helpline
can help assess whether you already meet the
Visa Benchmark B, and provide you with a
training plan for future training for free.
We can assist you with all of the required paperwork
and help you get the most from your training investment
