Skilled Occupations List

On the SOL there are some occupations that have "similar occupations" quoted under the same occupation number.

Does anyone know whether these similar occupations are still classed as being on the SOL.

E.G. Optical Mechanic 4999-11 - similar occupations Optical Dispenser.

I have been an Optical Dispenser for over 10 years. We have to apply to the TRA for skills recognition and we are not sure what angle to go with this.

Do you know whether to say Im a Optical Dispenser or Optical Mechanic that specialises in Optical Dispensing.

Has anyone come across this with their occupation or know how immigration and the TRA acknowledge the similar occupation.
Many thanks

I'd better get my new glasses sooner than later for I can see Optical Mechanic but no reference to an Optical Dispensor as a similar occupation.

But regardless of where you found the reference, sounds like detail to be addressed with TRA re what is what and they should also be able to advise I imagine on just what the immi requirements are.
