Training Benchmark B 457 – Employee Training

  1. 1. Employee Training
  2. 2. PD Training has partnered with the MIA as the preferred training supplier for migration agents and companies required to met Benchmark B 457 training requirements in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide and Canberra.
  3. 3. Companies and migration agents can meet all the required paperwork by generating a quote and invoice, print student certificates and show that their 457 training requirements have been met as per the legislation.
  4. 4. An employer or migration agent can meet Training Benchmark B by providing evidence of spending 1% of their payroll on training for their employees who are either Australian citizens or permanent residents. The Department of Immigration and Citizenship has a list of examples of training that may count towards meeting Training Benchmark B. The key requirement of the training is it must be a formal face-to-face, structured course and must also be independently verifiable.
  5. 5. What is a relevant course of study? A relevant course of study relates to the business of the applicant, but is not narrowly limited to the occupation of the employees. Training which contributes to the professional development of employees can be counted towards Training Benchmark B. Furthermore, the training must be relevant to the employer’s business activities.
  6. 6. Apprentices, trainees and graduates Apprenticeships and traineeships also constitute training positions for the purpose of the 457 visa. Where the employer employs an apprentice or trainee, the salary provided to the person can be counted towards calculating whether the training benchmark of 1% of payroll expenditure has been met as required under Training Benchmark B.
  7. 7. Graduate positions however, are not considered training positions. Sponsors wanting to count expenditure on a graduate position towards Training Benchmark B may only attribute expenditure that is for the formal aspects of the graduate position, for example, the costs for administering the graduate program. It’s important to understand that wages paid to staff while attending training cannot be counted towards the Benchmark, unless the staff are apprentices, trainees or graduates.
  8. 8. PD Training can provide custom training plans and deliver the training within 48 hours of application in emergency situations.
