ASCO to ANZSCO Code (Skill Assessment)

I applied as Electronics Engineers for skills assessment. In old Skilled Occupation List(SOL), it was given code ASCO 2125-13, so I mentioned this ASCO code in my application.
But today DIAC has announced new SOL and this Electronics Engineer is now been assigned ANZSCO Code 233411.

I wanted to ask that now which code will be given on my skill assessment result? And will it be still accepted by DIAC for Visa applications?

DIAC have advised us that they will honour the ASCO code assessment for a period of 12 months after the introduction of the new SOL, or the expiry date of their 12-month validity of the assessment outcome letter, whichever is the sooner.

If you are still waiting on the assessment, you could also enquire of the IEA and see if they will be starting to use the ANZSCO equivalents in their assessment advices.
I would expect they will.

If anybody could help me out here. The new SOL list does not contain information about which organization should the skills be assessed from for a specific occupation as it was in the previous SOL list Can anyone tell me which organization should i get skills assessed from for Telecommunications Engineer listed in the new SOL list with ANZSCO code 263311. Is it going to be EngineerAustralia?

Also how many points can I get from this occupation as compared to being getting skills assessed for Electrical Engineer ?

Thanks and Regards,
Murad Kazmi

Yours is one of those curly questions as we say at times Murad for in the older listings of SOL and A-Z Occupations List - Australian Skills Recognition Information there is not a telecommunications engineer occupation but I can recall mention of it being inclusive to the Electronics engineer or engineering technologist occupations or even the Engineering Technologist [ nec ] with all engineer level occupations covered by the IEA.

The grouping of it re ANZSCO number with IT occupations is interesting and thus your question.
It will be some time, perhaps even 01 July [ date for new SOL implementation ] before the SOL is updated to present format and likewise the asri pages and with Immi fully involved in keeping processing going re existing applications whilst also setting themselves up internally re new listings and structure, there is likely going to be a lot of detail that may have not even been considered by them, occupational classifications being something that is just passed on to them, not really their jurisdiction re the ANZSCO numbering.

What you may want to do is send an email to the IEA as they may have some input into what ANZSCO classifications they will be responsible for re assessments and as well/or alternately do likewise with the ACS

As to points, I'd expect that all engineering and IT professions will remain at 60 points and if your qualifications are as an electrical engineer but you work in telecommunications, you may still want to review what occupation it is best for you to be assessed as and in which to apply with Immi.

Sorry I cannot be more specific and if you find something out, please post it.

I had already emailed EngineersAustralia asking them about the details of these new additions in engineering occupations.

I was going through the list again and noticed that there are more divisions within the telecommunications engineer as
-313212 Telecommunications field engineer
-313213 Telecommunications network planner
-313214 Telecommunications technical officer or technologist

this makes things a little more confusing. The thing is that before this new list I was going to get my skills assessed as Electrical Engineer because my degree (Telecommunications Engineering) and my work experience (as RF Planner in GSM operator) were qualifying as Electrical Engineer.

Now that all these new occupations are added I find it confusing which one to get my skills assessed for because I find myself qualifying for 3 different occupations:

-313213 Telecommunications network planner
-263311 Telecommunications engineer
-233311 Electrical engineer

I have asked EA which one they will be assessing. Lets see what they respond. But do you have any idea which one I should go for or are all the same for the purpose of getting skills assessed?

IEA will still do assessments for electrical emgineer and any of the engineering disciplines that people have qualified in at degree level.
But before you go thinking you qualify in three different areas, it will be your primary qualification that will determine that and if your telecommunications degree was a sub-set of electrical engineering, that may be OK and also done by IEA but only time will tell with clarification of the Immi azri pages.

If you are looking to qualify for telecommunications in the IT area because that is where you have been working, I suspect it may be ACS and they will most likely still have the degree plus minimum four year experience requirement for assessment.
1220.0 - ANZSCO - Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations, First Edition, Revision 1 may also be worth a look for info.

And of course, do shoot of an email to Immi - http://www.immi.gov.au/contacts/visa...fessionals.htm
Please post on what you find out.

Radio Engineers use to fall under electronics not electrical.

Unhappy

I had emailed IEA asking them about which codes they are responsible for assessing and this was their response:

Quote:
Thank you for your enquiry.

But I regret we ourselves have no guarantee yet from DIAC of the occupations for which Engineers Australia will be the authorised assessing authority after 1 July 2010. Thus I cannot provide the advice you seek.

We too are waiting for the new SOL on 1 July 2010 for this information, although we'd hope to see a draft before then to aid in our preparation. We have seen nothing to date.

However, please note that it is expected that ASCO codes will NOT feature in the new SOL in any event from 1 July 2010 ... only ANZSCO codes.
I also asked them to advise me on which occupation I should get my skills assessed on and this was their response to that

Quote:
Please understand we cannot offer informal advice on possible outcomes for you ... you will appreciate that we leave ourselves well open to legal action from yourself if such outcomes are not realised as a result of the formal assessment.
Actually my work experience is not related to IT at all. I work as an engineer in planning new GSM sites and other tasks related to GSM sites in my region. So I don't think ACS has got to do anything with me. I have asked IEA also but I guess i'll get a clear answer in July sadly

Honor mean, I have ASCO CODE 2231-79 Computing professional. My profession is still availabe but with different ANZSCO. I have a question that, while logging application for which code I should apply.

OR

Do we have any ASCO and ANZSCO comparasion list availabe.
