Do I qualify under ICT Business Analyst?

Recommended Posts

Guest Devil

Hi all,

 

I intend to apply for ACS Skills Assessment under the ICT Business Analyst category.

Following are my details:

Bachelor of Engineering in Electronics and Telecommunications

Masters in Telecommunications

4.5 years of genuine BA exp under the title Business Systems Analyst with a Telecom software vendor

 

Questions:

 

- I am not very sure if my education qualifies as ICT related. Where and how do i find this out?

- I was told, for a non-ICT degree I would need 6 yrs of relevant exp before I apply for assessment. Is this true?

 

Any suggestions would be great.

In the mean I am trying to understand the info on the ACS website.

 

Cheers

The ACS website brings to mind the mechanic's unroadworthy car and the plumber's leaky roof.

 

If you insist on applying to the ACS without taking advice about possible options, best of luck.

If you share the courses you studied during both of your degrees, and main responsibilities of your current job (as job title does not necessarily mean the same with different employers and different industries), then it will be easier for members to share their opinions.

I have done 2 assessments with ACS, and i can tell you bro.

 

You need advise from a MARA agent nothing is black and white with the ACS.

 

As the cat mentioned above job titles are worthless and so are degree titles. For example a friend got a computer science degree as the title, but she only studied 4 aspects of computer science and focused more on business studies and accounts

 

What the cats in the acs want to know is the subjects and are subjects the same level as the education in Aussie

and have you studied the core or understand computer science building blocks.

 

the most important aspect of the processes, is your job references need to match the broad spec of the ACS job titles.

 

If not then kiss your application money goodbye and welcome to reject vill poplation one

Hi, I would recommend having a word with Peter Chiam from Ptlabs http://ptlabs.com.au/. Peter is a reg agent here in Oz and was a massive help in getting my OH throught his ACS assessment and our perm visas. He is a PIO member also.

You need to look at the contents of your degree course to determine whether or not it counts as suitable for the ACS.

 

An Electronics and Telecommunications course is likely to have a significant amount of programming and working with computer hardware (albeit at a low level). If you're lucky there might be enough to put you into Group A, but it's more likely you'll fall into Group B.

 

The ACS assessment isn't that difficult in itself, the problem is that their documentation isn't that clear. I found it the hardest part of my (DIY) visa application.

My Skills Assessment letter says that "You degree in -------- from ----- university awarded in the year ------ has been assessed as comparable to an Australian Masters degree with a major in computing". Since I am using an agent I am not sure exactly what needs to be done to get he ACS to assess your ICT degree.

I'm wondering about this as well, because my degree was also assessed to be "comparable" but I didn't use an agent. All I did was give them my transcripts and the testamur, but everyone has to do that.

 

Do all ACS letters not assess the degree? Is that now considered to be a separate service?

Folks,

 

Me and my spouse are planning to file an application for the Australian PR this summer.

 

Not sure about the pros and cons of doing the processing by self v/s taking the consultant route. Consultants I spoke to here in Bangalore are charging as much as 65K towards processing, find it grossly unreasonable.

 

Can someone please advise me on the best way out, risks v/s chances of errors in doing the processing on your own ?

 

Thanks

I would recommend if yours case is straight forward then need'nt to go through by using a consultant , if not then i strongly recommend to go through by consultant , i would rather suggest to go through offshore MARA registered consultant because they are more knowledgable and experienced then local one.

Hi,

 

I am a recent MBA graduate from UK with a specialization in Business Information Systems. I have over 5 years experience in IT Services industry; working primarily in Technology Infrastructure Services as Technical Lead.

 

My role involved planning the IT infrastructure allocation for new projects, capacity management, availability management and performance improvement of IT Systems.

 

I do not have direct experience of any Programming Languages or Databases; although I had exposure of working with development teams in my role. I also never had the title of a Business Analyst but I was the Technical Lead for IT Infrastructure Consulting.

 

Could you clarify if I am eligible to work as an ICT Business Analyst if not then is there any category in which I can apply?

Why not simply ask ACS itself? Here they have a very clear agenda on what makes up an ICT Business Analyst.

 

Thanks for the reply. I did try contacting ACS but they replied stating to contact Department of Immigration.
