Skills Assessment - Network Security

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

This is my first post. I think the forum is great!

 

My partner and I are in the very early stages of looking to move to Oz. We can't really afford an agent so I've been doing lots of research to try and do it ourselves.

 

We're just in the process of completing the skills assesment to ACS for his job in Network Security (on MODL). I'm just wondering if anyone else has done it alone and if they can offer any advice around the amount of detail etc required for the written explanation to go with the resume?

 

Any advice much appreciated

Maddie

Hey Maddie,

 

I had a skills assessment for Data Warehousing with the ACS last March. Different disciplines but the principles for a successful assessment are the same as other occupations.

 

I supplied written references from all my employers for the last six years, my university testamur and transcript.

 

The ACS has a PDF file with the requiremenst for a successful assessment. For the references, they have to contain this information:

 

 

company letterhead

 


 

 


 

 


 

 


job title

 


 

 


 

 


 

 


detailed job description

 


 

 


 

 


 

 


precise dates of employment

 


 

 


 

 


 

 


full or part-time

 


 

 


 

 


 

 


demonstrated levels of competence with any computer languages

 


 

 


 

 


 

 


various types of hardware and software used

 


 

 


 

 


 

 


extent of involvement with any major projects.

 

 

HTH,

 

Mike

Thanks Mike

It also asks for a written explanation detailing projects worked on etc (from yourself rather than the employer). Did you do one of these? Just wondering about level of detail.

Hi Maddie,

Have you checked out any RPL forums? There'll be more specific help on them.

Good luck.

I just supplied references but made sure they emphasised points relevant to my occupation. I actually wrote out the references for my previous employers as a template, they made corrections/alterations/additions as necessary before they sent it back. It worked quite well - I found that most previous employers aren't keen on doing the hard graft on a reference for you or can't remember who you are!

 

Pvt your email and I'll send them over if you want a look.

Cheers for the advice. We've sent it all off now so fingers crossed! I think we've covered everything...just the wait now:daydreaming:

We did online and then sent all the certified docs off today. Apparantly by doing it online it just fills in the details to save them having to do it! Good luck with yours- what specialism are you going for?

Although MODL has been deleted the ACS explicitely state that they are still assessing MODL specialisations. Why might that be?

Honestly, the ACS are so far behind that it's unreal.

 

Supposedly they should attract the elite IT community, but the user experience of the site reminds me of a teenagers first Frontpage website in the late 90s. Same for the online forms.

 

I think it will be sometime before they're up to date.
