I've just received the confirmation about my skill assessment. The letter says "The following employment after september 2012 is considered to equate to work at an appropriately skilled level and relevant to .........." and lists all my companies and job and the years that i've worked.

I've total of 6 years of experience but from the certificate from skill assessment it looks like i'm getting only 1 year of relevant experience. They seem to have deducted 5 years from my total exp. This could really affect my points for 189 visa.

I also noted that the assessment website says "Only employment completed after the date you have met the ACS requirements will be counted as
skilled employment." which is also not very clear.

Regards,
Liji

HI Liji -

Welcome to ACS where getting a degree is only the beginning. ACS requires a certain number of years of qualified experience after you get your degree in order to deem you as "skilled" - here are the details:

https://www.acs.org.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0016/7324/Summary-of-Criteria.pdf

Unfortunately DIAC will not allow points for work experience prior to the ACS deeming date. Would suggest you study the link above - if the number of years they have "deducted" does not match up to the type of degree/major you have per the link, you may want to ask ACS to review your results. Based on what you put in your post, you would not be able to claim points for work experience before September 2012.

I cannot tell you how many people this ACS policy is causing major problems with - it's a huge mess. Especially when many other skills assessment authorities deem you skilled as of the date you get your degree, with no "deductions" for work experience that occurs after you get your degree.

Hope this helps - sorry I don't have better news -

Best,

Mark Northam

Hi Mark,

I was hoping for some good news :( but this really clarified things.
Thanks for this information. I really didn't understand the logic behind this on why such policy was brought in by ACS. This means you would need atleast 10 + years of experience which will help in claiming good points in exp but you'll end up loosing points for your age :rolleyes:

Liji
