Diagnostic Radiographer ANZSCO 251211/ sonographer ANZSCO 251214

Recommended Posts

Hey, hope this isn’t too confusing and not sure if anyone else has been in the same position as me....
I am hoping to apply for the 189 visa and possibly the 190 visa. I am a qualified Sonographer in the UK (qualified and started working in October 2016). Prior to this I was a diagnostic radiographer for 5 years.
I submitted my skills assessment to ASMIRT and passed the skills assessment as a diagnostic radiographer but failed the sonographer assessment as I am not trained in obstetrics or MSK. 
When submitting my EOI I will obviously be using the diagnostic radiographer ANZSCO 251211 Code. My question however is when filling in previous employment for the 189 visa can I put down sonographer since October 2016 or will this hinder the application? Technically diagnostic radiographer and sonographer are related jobs as they are both under medical imaging and sonographer was a promotion from radiographer. Also under the HCPC I am still register as a radiographer as sonographer is not a protected job title. I will also soon be training in lithotripsy as well which uses both ultrasound and xrays so technically still working as a radiographer for that bit even though my main job title is sonographer. Thank you for reading this far.

Before you go too far down the track, work out how many points you can get.

Although you only need 65 points to apply for a visa, it's a competitive process.  Currently, competition is so fierce that you don't stand a chance unless you can score over 90 points for the 189 visa.

I would have thought that as long as the years of experience acknowledged by ASMIRT equals to the number of points you're claiming, it should not make a difference.

From a common sense point of view, let's say you're a radiographer, who after 5 years on the frontline, is now a superintendent. Your job title is superintendent, but you're claiming points as a radiographer.

That's just my personal view though; I'm not a migration agent.

Hello. Sorry, how much time did it take to get assessment by ASMIRT? In the website they say up to 16 weeks. 

 

By the way, I think you can be assessed as radiographer and immigrate as a radiographer as well, once you settle down in Australia, you can be assessed as a sonographer by AHPRA. Not all jobs(radio, sono...) require ASMIRT assessment, but nearly all of them require AHPRA assessment. 

These days for getting a 189 you need to have 90,95 points, but with 70 to 85 you can get 190 visa.
