Workforce Migration Training

Developed by Fragomen, delivered by CENTIEM.

Employing and managing foreign staff can be a risky business. Not knowing the rules can lead to costly mistakes. The penalties can be serious and can impact on project delivery and team performance.

  • Suspension or loss of sponsorship status can prevent your organisation accessing essential personnel.
  • Serious financial penalties and even imprisonment of employees can affect your business reputation.
  • Visa cancellation and removal from Australia of foreign staff can disrupt important projects.

Workforce Migration Training courses are designed to minimise these risks.

  • Send a clear and consistent message about the importance of migration compliance.
  • Educate your workforce about the do’s and don’ts of employing, managing and supervising overseas workers.
  • Remind your overseas staff of their obligations to you and the Department of Immigration.
  • Make migration compliance a standard part of your business operations.

On-line courses

  • Time efficient and easy to use – Employees simply log on and complete the assigned course as they have time. A number of short questions at the end of the course ensures a proper understanding and reinforces key messages.
  • Always up to date – Our courses have been developed by Fragomen’s team of expert lawyers and migration agents who review the content and accuracy of the courses regularly.
  • Employer controlled – You decide who completes what course and when they will do it. On-line reporting will let you check their progress.
  • Branded and customised (if required) – On-line courses can be co-branded with your corporate logo and colours and the content customised to your particular needs (additional charges may apply)
