Confused-ACS Skill Assessment regarding Professiona Year & work experience

Recommended Posts

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,
