Please could someone help confirm the process for attaining points in the following categories (Software Engineer - 261313):
Qualifications (15 Points): At least a bachelor degree from an Australian educational institution or other degree of a recognised standard
Skilled Employment (15 Points): In skilled employment for at least eight and up to 10 years (of the past 10 years)
For Qualifications I understand that these are dependent on the ACS evaluation. In my case I assume:
Bachelor Degree or Higher with an ICT Major which is closely related
2 Years in last 10 Years OR 4 Years in total work experience (anytime)
Does this mean I get 15 points?
How are the points allocated, with regards to the 2 or 4 years work experience deduction?
For Skilled employment: is this based on the ACS evaluation? How is the experience verified by DIBP or is this the purpose of the ACS evaluation.
i.e. Does the ACS evaluation influence both Qualifications and Skilled employment points.
