Employers sponsoring under the 457 visa scheme or under employer nomination visa scheme(subclass 186) are required to demonstrate their contribution and commitment to the training of Australians by satisfying one of the “training benchmarks” outlined by DIAC to be approved as a sponsor.

Employers only need to choose one of the following.

Training Benchmark A: Payment to an industry training fund of at least 2% of payroll( incurred in last 12 months)

Training Benchmark B: Expenditure of at least 1% of payroll ( incurred in last 12 months) on training their Australian citizen or permanent resident employees.

Moreover, Training Benchmark is imperative for the businesses in Australia who have the employees with Temporary work Visa(subclass 457), or under the Employer Nomination Scheme visas( subclass 186). The business organizations will be required to meet the ‘Training Benchmark’ both at the time of application, and during the continuance of the visa.
