3 years D.A.E is equal to Australian AQF Diploma?

Hi ,
I done 10 years secondary school education ie matric and after that i did 3 years D.A.E ( diploma of associate engineering ) in Computer Hardware. You can say I have total 8 years of experience in computer networks and telecom.

Now i wants to apply for Skilled Independent (Migrant) visa (subclass 175)
but before starting my assessment process at ACS i wants to make sure that if i wana apply as systems designer 2231-13

ANZSCO code---ANZSCO occupation---ASCO code and occupation----------Assessing Authority---------Points
261112----------Systems analyst--------2231-13 Systems Designer------------ACS-----------------------------60

which is mentioned in SOL (schedule 3)


And in the current PIMguidelines they wrote as in the bottom of this post acs.org.au/assessment/docs/Current_PIMGuidelines.pdf

My humble question is that they would consider my 3 year D.A.E is equivalent to an Australian AQF Diploma or Australian AQF Advanced Diploma OR NOT?

Thanks in advance

First of all, make sure you use just the ANZSCO code in making applications to either ACS or Immi.
Our AQF diploma/certificate courses in Australia are usually post 12 years of primary/secondary education though it is possible that people may have only done 4 years secondary [ 10 years total ] and then worked a bit before going back to a college to do a certificate/diploma.
The only way of establishing whether your qualifications will be accepted for an ANZSCO classification by ACS is to apply for an assessment.

Thanks wanderer now i understood that after 1 july 2010 we can only apply by choosing any ANZSCO code i mean not any ASCO code, here were the news ==> http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/gener...gsm-anzsco.pdf
================================================== ==============

OK i have another query that can i still apply for the same position in ANZSCO 261112 system analyst
Systems Analyst - 261112
They wrote in this^^ doc as below

"Skill level

This occupation has a level of skill commensurate with a bachelor degree or higher qualification. At least five years of relevant experience may substitute for the formal qualification"

So its mean if i have 8 years of IT experience then can i apply without any bachelor degree???

Please guide!!!

The ACS do have their Group B & C classifying as you are aware and I'm no IT bod nor have any exposure to ACS classifying other than what people experience and relate on here but it seems to me you may need to consider

If your studies were primarily in IT and you have the curriculum details all in english or can have it translated so the level of that study can be readily assessed, then there ought to be a good chance that your eight years of experience will be sufficient.
Again, you will need to give detailed information, employer references etc. to your duties to show that your experience has been of a suitable level.
The FAQ on the ACS site has some references to the level of information they require.

Rafa, this thread is almost 5 years old so presumably the OP has already sorted out his visa.
