Change of Occupation Names on SOL\SMP - Computing Professionals

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Apologies if this has already been asked elsewhere as I'm sure someone else will have.

 

Last year I was accepted for State Sponsorship for the ACT. The occupation ACS assessed my skills was:

 

Computing Professionals - Systems Programmer

 

I have been in Cat 5 for the last year waiting for News (Post September application).

 

Now DIAC have renamed all the occupations on the SOL (and the SMP I believe?), I am wandering if 'Computing Professionals - Systems Programmer' is covered by any of the following that's on the SOL (Systems Programmer was not on SOL):

 

261111 - ICT business analyst

261112 - Systems analyst

261311 - Analyst programmer

261312 - Developer programmer

261313 - Software engineer

 

I would have thought it would come under 'Software Engineer'.

 

My question is - as the occupations have been renamed, do I need to reapply for skills assessment (ACS) to receive new occupation and possibly as I may be on SOL be moved up a Category? Or do DIAC do this automatically and readjust people's Occupation and therefore category automatically? Also same question goes for the SMP which is due out next month for ACT...

 

Do I need to do anything or just sit back and relax (and let DIAC\ACT deal with)?!

 

I'm confused!

 

Thanks,

 

Mike.

That's pretty much what I was going to ask! Quite a few of the ASCO codes map across to a number of the new ANZCO ones. Who decides? Do we have to do anything??

 

And there was me thinking we must be next in the queue for a CO!
