ACS accredition doubt

Hi Friends,

I need your opinion on this issue.

I am an Indian, planning to apply to ACS for accredition of my IT skills. I have a 4 year bachelor degree in computer science and have 3 years and 9 months experience as of now..I am planning on applying as a Group A computing professional ...

Of these years, i worked as a application developer in intel -- 0.8 Years

For now 3years and 1 month, i have been working as a telecom architect in verizon (java) . Due to some family issues, i have to move to my native town . Since its a small town, i could only find a job as a teaching professional in one of the education institutes . I would be teaching in java. I am not sure whether i can take this job and show this as valid experience as an IT professional .

As per PASA guidelines, it will not be part of COMPUTING PROFESSIONALS / INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY MANAGERS. I think they might view this as vocational educational teaching.

Would this be a problem in the outcome of the application.

Also the salary would be substantially lower than what i am getting now. would that be an issue of concern for my case?

I am really thinking whether i should accept it or pass it to find any computing software development jobs?

Your input will be highly appreciated!

Thanks,
-Anand

You need 4 years experience and I would have thought being employed as a teacher in IT would be considered suitable experience.

Best thing is to on having the four years make your application with ACS.

Thanks a lot for your views wanderer. I am planning to apply after finishing the required 4 years ... i really hope that ACS would approve my next job as a java trainer as relevant 'professional' experience..

Also another question:

my ASCO code would still be 223179 - Computing Professionals Nec and not 242211 - Vocational Education Teacher right?

Thanks,
-Anand

With your experience stream being IT and teaching just one aspect of that I would have thought you would want to stick with IT.
Getting assessed as a teacher is something entirely different.
