  1. Hi Guyz I have done BSIT and MSC in Computer Science along with 12 years of Experience. Applied in ACS. I got a reply from them that my qualifications are not suitable with AQF so advised to submit RPL and Additional 200AUD. I did and got a positive result. But from 12 years only 3.8 years experienced accepted. Now i am confused what to do. I am predicting that i got only 5 points for experience, 30 points of age, 5 points for states total 40 points. Please correct me if i am wrong. Please advice me what to do. To get 20 more points i need to score 8 in all 4 modules of IELTS or any other way is also there?? ACS report doesnt say about qualification. Only experience details are mentioned I am just thinking what qualification have to be selected in EOI? Shuld i select MSC although it is not recognised? Does RPL reports give some points? But no info is mentioned about RPL in acceptence letter? Waiting for your kind advices

  4. Dear All, Attached a template that i am going use for as reference letter. I will put all my duties and projects detail and then will send to employer, expecting they will review and sign it. Kindly take a look and let me know if it will serve the purpose. I would really appreciate your comments and please highlight if you find any errors. Besides, i have few queries : 1) Do we really need to write salary in reference letter? 2) I did few projects for Govt organization that i don't want to mention Company name.

  5. Hi all, I intend to apply for ACS Skills Assessment under the ICT Business Analyst category. Following are my details: Bachelor of Engineering in Electronics and Telecommunications Masters in Telecommunications 4.5 years of genuine BA exp under the title Business Systems Analyst with a Telecom software vendor Questions: - I am not very sure if my education qualifies as ICT related. Where and how do i find this out? - I was told, for a non-ICT degree I would need 6 yrs of relevant exp before I apply for assessment. Is this true? Any suggestions would be great. In the mean I am trying to understand the info on the ACS website. Cheers
  6. When i started my career i had only 12 Grade College Certificate. I am a self-taught guy and I have 15 Years of experience in Application Development, and I recently completed my “Associate Degree in Web Design and Development” which is equivalent to AQF Diploma 10 points, my confusion is if I go with RPL route with “No Tertiary Education” am I going to get 10 points for my post experience Education which I completed recently? Because if i am not eligible to claim my recently awarded degree points than in that case my points will drop down to 65 which are not sufficient i guess. I have read in other posts that people who got their degrees prior to their professional experience but insufficient relevant content they went for a points test advice from Vetassess, and they claimed their education points. But my case is different because i recently completed my degree. Please advise
  7. Hi Everyone, I am interested in applying for a 189 Visa for ICT Security Specialist. I have 4 years experience in the ICT Security field and I am CISSP qualified. Unfortunately I do not have a degree which means I do not have enough experience to get a positive skills assessment from ACS. My question is: Does anybody know if ACS recognise CISSP as an ICT qualification and what experience would be needed to gain a positive skills assessment if they do? Thanks! Jack

    ACS Work experience letter

    Hi Guys, I have got a work experience letter from my UK employer which only mentioned working "full time and *not working hours per week*. Will ACS accept this letter or the hours must be mentioned? Appreciate your response.
  9. Hi, I have been a creaper on the forums for a while now but I cant seem to find any information to verify what I am trying to do and hope someone can help! Me and my partner are applying for skilled migration through me as a Systems Analyst (she is a marketing specialist but thats not on the list anymore) I previously held a 457 as a Systems Analyst until last year when family sickness meant we had to come home, we now want to go back with a skilled visa(PR.) The biggest problem I have is my age and lack of any formal qualification, I can lose 8 years of my experience via an ACS RPL skills assessment as I will still obtain points for 5-7 years experience in the UK (I have 13 years 5 months in the UK total) and 1-2 years in Australia. However, I really need ACS to award points for a qualification (10) to get the 70 required for Systems Analyst. My points are below: Age 35 - 25 English (superior) - 20 (still need to take the test) Experience outside Aus 5-7 years (With 8 years deducted by ACS) - 10 Experience in Aus 1-2 years - 5 Qualifications - ? 10 ? I have looked into a company called SkillsSelect who can provide me with a Australian Diploma in Information Technology via RPL based on my experience, will ACS allow this to be used for qualification points? As the diploma will be post experience, should I submit it with the skills assessment and they will use the 8 years as well as also approve the diploma for use as qualification points OR should I be submitting the diploma separately? I have an ALevel(2001) in Information Technology and an MCTS certificate from Microsoft(June 2013) but I am told these cannot be counted for either the ACS skills assessment or for the qualification points does anyone have experience with this? I am not currently working but if I dont get an invitation in the next 5 months I will need to start working again to keep the points. How do I get that experience verified as it wont be on my skills assessment? Sorry for all the questions but thanks in advance if anyone can help!
  10. Hi I have recently submitted my EOI for ICT Business Analysis on the 189 Visa. All good I have the 60 points, but have recently learnt that they are only inviting for 70 points and above. I have only submitted with RPL from ACS, but was wondering if I could do a certification and get an extra 10 points? My question is really what level of certification can I claim the secondary level education for? Do I need a Bachelors? or would a BCS Certificate in Business Analysis Practice at practitioner level suffice? Or do I need to do the full BCS International Diploma in Business Analysis? What do they mean by secondary level education? Thanks, Kate
  11. Hello, I'm currently in the process of working toward a PR visa & part of this is completion of an Australian Computer Society (ACS) RPL.. Now, I've looked online & can see (for obvious & understood reasons) that people aren't keen to 'share' their work. I re-iterate, I understand the reasons around this... That said, all I would really like (if at all possible) is if anyone who has been through this process could perhaps give me an idea of what layout of information they used as I really have no clue where to begin with this! Ironically, I suppose this is as I work in IT & not the writing industry i.e did you use bullet points for example? I'm pretty sure I'll be ok with the project reports, but the remainder of detailing how I know about x y & z seems to have me at a writers block stage... Appreciate any & all advice/tips anyone can give & thanks in advance
  12. Hi, We had our RPL done by ACS. However, there is no mention of educational qualification in the assessment. This is for a mechanical engineer, applying for IT job as experienced in IT. Do we have to get our education assessed by someone? Does anyone have any experience on this? Thanks
  13. Hey guys,does anyone knows how long would it take for ACS to finish the assessment? for me now it shows that my application is "With Assessor", I don't really what that means, and it says" Please note that the whole application process takes approximately 6-8 weeks", which is really LONG LONG time.BR,

    I have done diploma in network domain and degree in distance education and now working as system administrator since 8 years. Am planning to apply ACS, should I include my degree or should I go with degree. Kindly suggest. They shouldn't reject my application because of distance education. And also please suggest should I go through agent or do it myself. Currently I am in India and and don't have any kind of Australian Visa.
  18. Dear Members Recently, I received skill assessment from ACS and they assessed my Ph.D. degree as Masters. Please see the below content from ACS to understand the full scenario. Your Bachelor of Computer Science has been assessed as comparable to an AQF Bachelor Degree with a Major in computing. Your Masters in Information Technology has been assessed as comparable to an AQF Master Degree with a Major in computing. Your PhD in Computer Engineering has been assessed as comparable to an AQF Master Degree with a Major in computing. How can they assess my PhD degree equivalent to Masters degree. Is it a mistake from their side or ACS has some list of recognized universities? I did my Ph.D. from a well-known University of South Korea. What should I do now?

  20. Hello 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. Thanks

    I am looking for a Visa Agent who is an Expert in IT skills based Visa's. An Agent who is well acquainted with the ACS / Australian Computing Society assessment. Recommendations welcomed. Thanks guys.
  22. Am have few queries regarding academics/educational qualification evaluation (ICT related) by ACS. Preface – Two parallel studies carried out. Primary qualification is Bachelors of Commerce (B.Com – 3 years) through correspondence. Secondary qualification is Diploma in Computer Applications from DOEACC Society, i.e. O level diploma course of two semesters (10 hour / per week) followed by A level diploma (in continuity to O level) of two semesters (15 hours / per week). Q 1 – How to treat the overall qualification, will it be considered Full time or Part time? Q 2 – What’ll be overall coverage of ICT content, will it be considered ICT Major, ICT Minor or ICT Diploma? Q 3 – How many years of ICT related work experience will be considered/consumed to meet the eligibility? Will appreciate some insight and clarity in the said question… Thanks…!

    ACS Assessment

    I have completed my Bachelor (3 Years) degree in Arts (not related to ICT), but my MBA (2 Years Post Graduate degree) in Information Systems which has more than 50% subjects or units related to ICT. Therefore could you please confirm that in this scenario my MBA would be recognized by ACS?

    Obtaining ACS References

    Hello Please could someone advise on how they went about attaining work references specifically in the ACS format. I am finding it difficult to convince companies (corporate) I worked at many years ago to take the time and provide a reference in the precise format required by ACS. What other alternatives are there. How acceptable is the Statutory Declaration. Who can do this? Does it need to be in a specific format? Thank you
  25. Dear Seniors I was graduated in 2011 from an Australian University and since then I worked 1.8 years as a professional. I'm about to submit my EOI for 189 visa and I'm claiming for 5 points for Australian work experience. I heard/aware the fact that ACS nowadays deducts "years" from applicants work experiences to deem people as skilled etc. My question is, will I be eligible to apply under "Post Australian Studies skill assessment"?? If I'm eligible, then there is a chance that my 1.8 years work experience all count. So, I can claim 5 points. Because, skilled met date for this category is "the date of the graduation". Please advice, thank you
