  1. Well, I've looked at the SMPs, and I've utterly upset for the simple reason that Telecomm Network Engineers have fewer possibilities to move to AU than tradespersons such as Telecomm Technicians. I'm the Telecommunications Network Engineer with more than 7yr experience, however I haven't been assessed yet and no IELTS as well, so I'm just trying to decide for myself, which kind of assessment I have to choose. Let's consider a Telecomm Egineer opportunity, who is represented in two positions in SOL3. These are: 263311 Telecommunications Engineer 263312 Telecommunications Network Engineer Now let's consider the SMPs: in WA SMP (IELTS 7777, 7 year exp) - but there is ONLY 263311 in SA (20k$ cash) - only 263312 I remember ACT SMP has 26331x position, but there are some insane cash requirements also. An engineer must be assessed with the IEA, have an IELTS 6666, and be ready to pay about AUD$500. As well the assessment will take about 5 months. After that the engineer will get just one ANZSCO code. It's very sad. Then let's consider to the opportunity 342414 TELECOMMUNICATIONS TECHNICIAN, who is just simple tradesperson. You can look at duties here: 1220.0 - ANZSCO - Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations, First Edition, Revision 1 I suppose, any professional telecomm engineer knows how to work with cables and with telecomm equipment, so i presume that any one able to be assessed as a tradesperson. Furthermore, lets look at the telecomm technician possibilities and requirements: WA (IELTS 6666, 5 yr exp) VIC (5 yr exp) Telecomm technician has to be assessed in TRA, the assessment will cost about $300, and it will take 1 month. Feel the difference. Well, now is the question. I have a bachelor degree, and I was qualified as 'Physicist'. After qualification I've been working for different telecommunications companies, so my summary experience is more than 7 years as Telecommunications Network Engineer. However, i see that a technician has more possibilities to move out to AU than an engineer, therefore the question is how to be assessed in TRA ? Has anybody an experience with TRA assessment ? May be have you another thoughts? Don't hesitate, and just drop line here. p.s. All of this is relating to the new points test. I don't make delusions to my ability to pass an IELTS more than 6666 or somthing else
  2. New SOL does not contain the list of the organisations which will be responsible for the assessment of the codes. When it is obvious where some codes should be assessed, it is not so clear for others. For example, I am not sure if 261313 Software Engineer will be assessed by ACS or IEA. Would like to hear your opinions. Thanks in advance.
  3. Hello everyone! I`ve been here for weeks i found there are many useful advice here. Now I have a complex problem of my immigrated case, i would like to consult from you here, thank you in advance! My Case like this. (10.2004-05. 2008) I was a electronic engineer two years agao, the work lasted 3.5 years. IEA (CSL) (2008.10-current) But the recently two years i changed my job to be a foreign trader (export make-in-china oversea) I am self-employer, i work at home, SOHO. I have no colleague, only myself working. my work is internet sales (e-commerce), including promoting products to customer, following up by email. after they placed an order, i source from the china market and contact shipper to arrange shippment etc. I handle all steps. all the process. so my role like a internet sales representative. buyer. quality inspector. etc.... from sales TO the goods reach the port destination. Techinical sales representatives (SOL) Marketing specialist (SOL) Importer and exporter (NON SOL) Suppose i have passed the IEA assessment,(i have an electronic engineering bachelor degaree and the relevant work experience) Can i start to apply the 175CSL individual immigration? MY WORRY (1)my recently two years working experience is not the same as the nominated occupation IEA. I heard that the Department of Immigration Australia have publish a new policy which requires "all persons must have worked in the skilled occupation for at least 12 months in the period of 24 months ending immediately before the day on which the application was made. from 1st. January 2010." Australian Immigration - Legislation Change Update Does this new policy apply to ALL? or just for those TRA students? last year they only required the applicant`s recent experience in SOL ! now it is still mentioned here --> http://www.immi.gov.au/visawizard/#vw=%23a_results " This visa allows you to migrate to Australia if you have good English language skills and have skills and qualifications in an occupation in need in Australia. You must: be under 45 years of age have the skills and qualifications that meet the Australian standard for an occupation on the Skilled Occupation List (SOL) meet the Australian study requirement, or meet the recent work experience requirement (you must have worked for 12 months in the last 24 months in any occupation on the SOL) meet the English language requirement Note: You must pass a points test. The pass mark is 120 points." (2) Can the soho working experience be admited? I can ask my oversea customer to give letters to evidence my work. and the income list of the company from the bank. etc..... I am thinking to mention clearly all my situation in the application form of me working at home as only one person. to start an application. Do you think it works? I am thinking to define my recently working exprience as Techinical sales representatives (SOL) Marketing specialist (SOL) will they consider it as Exporter and importer? which is not in SOL!!! It seems my case is rather complex, if you don`t know an exact answer, would you please advise how can i and where can i contact the DIAC directly to have direct answer?????. I have to let everthing clear before starting an applying, because the charge will not be return nomatter what reason they refused! I ever email to the Mr.Evan, but no reply as expected....... :wacko::wacko::wacko: Thanks for your valuable advice! Kind regards Jessi
