Benchmark Training 

If you are an Australian business wishing to sponsor an overseas national for employment in your business in Australia, for example under a subclass 457 Business (Temporary) Long Stay visa, or under the Employer Nomination Scheme visas, you will be required to meet the ‘training benchmark’ both at time of application, and for the length of the visa.

As a business operator, you are required to show that you have been and continue to be providing employers who are Australian citizens and permanent residents with training that relates to the purpose of the business.

There are two ways you can meet the training benchmark requirements. Sydney school of Business and Technology provide Training Benchmark B – Employee Training to meet the requirements.

Training Benchmark B – Employee Training

You will need to be able to show that recent expenditure by the business on training Australian employees is equivalent to at least one percent of the business’s payroll. Sydney School of Business and Technology SSBT can assist in meeting Training Benchmark B requirements.
