Assessment & Immigration

I am a Bachelor of Commerce and did few IT related courses. in 2002 I passed my MSCE (Windows 2000). I also attended some courses in Linux, Lotus Domino, CCNA etc.

I am Currently working as IT Support Engineer and my responsibilities include Administrating Windows 2003 servers and providing technical support to end users. I was also Team Leader for migrating Servers from Windows NT to Windows 2003. I also assist other Administrators in their jobs related to Domino Admin and Network Admin. other than Windows Administration, I have been assigned Administration of our CCTV Systems as it is a Windows based software.

My Agent suggested me to apply for ACS assessment by submitting RPL as I don't have a degree in IT. Is he right? i read that MCSE qualifies for group B assessment plus I got more than 11 yrs of experience in this filed. he also suggested to apply for state sponsorship rather than going for GSM.

I want my following doubts cleared.

can I skip the RPL and directly apply in group b?

under which ANZSCO Code I can apply for?

will my designation as IT support Engineer affect the assessment, though my Manager is ready to give me a good Letter of Experience?

under which category I should apply for the visa? 175, 176 or 475?

I do not profess to keep up with all the assessment organisations updates but the ACS have always had provision there as far as I know for people with a degree other than one with a sizable IT component and I think you will find that their B classification is for that and there will be a requirement for so many yaers of specific IT experience to get a classification.

Obviously what the classification ought to be will depend on your experience but you will also ideally want one that is on the SOL for immigration so by having a look there and on A-Z Occupations List - Australian Skills Recognition Information you are probably in the best place to see what you are matched to.
The 175 visa is where you will have enough points to be eligible and if not you may want to consider state sponsorship and the State Migration Plans should be established before too long and so less points will be needed but an application will have a higher priority.
Have a look at links from the Whats New Link on Professionals and other Skilled Migrants - Workers - Visas & Immigration
The 475 visa may be an option but you restrict yourself even further re employment opportunities.
