Australian Orthotic Prosthetic Association named assessing authority

The Australian Orthotic Prosthetic Association (AOPA) has been formally announced as the Assessing Authority responsible for conducting migration skill assessments for the profession of Orthotist/Prosthetist (251912). This is a major change in government policy and a great outcome for the profession. The government decision was influenced by the AOPA Entry Level Competency Standards and Assessment of Competence processes.

All internationally qualified orthotic/prosthetic practitioners must now complete AOPA’s robust competency assessment process prior to being granted a Skilled Migration Visa. This ensures that all internationally qualified practitioners who enter the Australian workforce meet AOPA’s standards and are competent to practice as orthotist/prosthetists in Australia.

More information about the application process can be found on the AOPA website.
