That's fantastic! Congratulations and all the best.

What's really cool about your timelines is that your NT state sponsorship happened in 3 days!

Hi all,

I've put this post on couple of the threads but haven't had much luck yet so thought I would try with you guys as you've had some success with the 489 Skilled Visa.

I've got an invitation to apply but I am a bit stuck on the Employment History section and the Skills Assessment bit. I have been assessed by VETASSESS for my current role (Health Promotion). However, I only have a positive skills assessment for 2.1 of the 3.1 years I've worked in that role. Is there a way on the visa application to separate the 'relevant' skilled experience with the 'non relevant' when its the same job? Or, do I just include my work history for this role (3.1 years) and whoever reviews my visa application will see from my skills assessment that 2.1 years is deemed 'relevant' and 1 year is deemed 'not relevant'? I haven't claimed any points for my work experience on my EOI. I don't know if I am just overthinking this but I just don't want to get it wrong. Any one got any experience of this where VETASSESS takes a 1 year off for 'training to the appropriate skill level'?

Health Promotion: 65 + 10 SS

State Nomination: April 2018

Invitation: May 2018

Thanks,

Suzie

Hi Suzie, was the 1st year your training? Skills assessments and the way immi view your work experience is only post qualification. So if you worked for 3.1 years, and was training for 1. Then it only classes as 2.1 years experience
