  1. Hi all, I have had my skills assessed by Engineers Australia under the Washington Accord as Electronic Engineer as that was what my degree was in. My work experience however fits into the category of Telecommunications Engineer. Is this classed as a "closely related occupation" to Electronics Engineer as I need to claim some work experience points... Anyone had any similar experience? Thanks!
  2. Hi there; I am about to apply for the 175 Migrant Visa as a Secondary teacher. In the application under previous Australian work experience it asks to list work experience that is closely related to nominated occupation. I worked for just over a year as a Primary School teacher in Oz..... do you think that would be considered as closely related? Thanks

    closely related occupation

    Hi, do you have experience with closely related occupation? I have my assessment for position as IT teacher, but currently I'm working in IT as Developer. Do you think this is closely related? I need working experience for my visa and I have experience only as Developer. Thanks for help

  5. Hi, I am a 1.5 yrs postgraduate diploma in accounting +0.5 yrs graduate diploma in financial management, I want to know what kind of document I need to hand in to verify they are closely related? Or do I need to write the summary by myself? Then is there any example summary like this for course closely related explanation for me as a reference? Thanx,guys!
  6. Hi folks, Does anyone know how DIAC decides what constitutes a closely related occupation skill wise? I am claiming ten points for Australian work experience as I was employed there using my skills as a journalist for fourteen-months consecutively. My nominated occupation is TV Reporter and I have been a journalist for 15-years, without a break. In Oz I worked for eleven months and three weeks as a print reporter and for two months immediately after with a PR firm using my TV news video production and news writing experience skills. (Two other journalists – well a chief of staff/senior journo of a state newspaper and editor/senior reporter of a community paper – were employed at the same time. I called the Melbourne office of Go Matilda today and the migration expert I spoke to said he could not envisage a case officer questioning this, which a migration advisor at the Australian High Commission also advised. Anyone had to use the closely related occupation for their three-years work experience needed for their nominated occupation or their Australian work experience to gain their points. Thanks for any stories of similar experiences and a Happy Christmas too! Let’s hope we all get our visas very soon. Jenny x PS My current job is TV Reporter in title but has a distinct PR emphasis:tonguexmas:.
  7. :wacko:Recent Work Experience and Closely Related Skilled Occupation:wacko: Can anyone help me answer the following 3 questions? 1) Recent Work Experience “To meet the recent work experience requirement, you must demonstrate that you have been employed in an occupation on the SOL for 12 of the 24 months immediately before lodging your visa application” Does this employment have to be in your NOMINATED occupation, or can it be in ANY occupation on the SOL? 2) If the recent work experience can be in ANY occupation on the SOL - who determines whether your recent work experience is in an occupation on the SOL if this work experience is not your NOMINATED occupation? And what criteria are applied to determine this? 3) What are the criteria for “a closely related occupation” for the Specific Work Experience and Occupation in Demand categories of the points test? My situation is that I am a qualified Electronic Equipment Tradesperson (Radio and Television Repairer) ASCO code 4315-11. However my career has progressed and I am now at CT (medical imaging equipment) Field Service Engineer. I do not have a diploma or degree in this occupation, but have simply progressed through “on the job” training and employer run internal training courses. It is my understanding this occupation would fall under Electrician Special Class ASCO code 4311-13. I am therefore concerned whether I meet the basic requirements for Recent Work Experience and additionally whether if I do meet this requirement whether I would qualify for any additional points for Specific Work Experience and Occupation in Demand categories. I would be really grateful for any clarification or details of personal experience of these issues. :nah::goofy:
