  2. Hi all, I am very confused about this assessment... hopefully someone can help me. this is my history: I came here to Australia to finish my studies, back in my country I am a professional software developer (I studied in a technological institute for 3 years and an half). I studied a bachelor in IT and at the same time I work part-time as a software Engineer( currently I still working for the same company. In August last year, I finished uni and applied for a skills assessment. I got my assessment granted in March this year. now, I would to work in the skill migrations visa. According to Mark Webster (https://www.acacia-au.com/changes-to-skills-assessment.php), "If you already hold a skills assessment for a 485 visa which was not based on work experience, you would need to obtain new full skills assessment if you wish to apply for permanent residence." Thus, a professional year experience is not applied to me. my questions is.. if I do a professional year course and keep working full time in my current job at the same time, I would be able to get 5 point for the course and another 5 points for my work experiences? Thank in advances, Christian.
