Unit group 2633 telecommunications engineering professionals

Hello,

My wife is a telecommunications engineer and she has 2 years experience with a Telecom carrier.

We were confused when we went through the Job description of TELECOMMUNICATIONS ENGINEERING PROFESSIONALS of the Australian Bureau of Statistics.


"TELECOMMUNICATIONS ENGINEERING PROFESSIONALS design, construct, install, service and support telecommunications equipment, systems and facilities.
Indicative Skill Level:
In Australia and New Zealand:

Most occupations in this unit group have a level of skill commensurate with a bachelor degree or higher qualification. At least five years of relevant experience and/or relevant vendor certification may substitute for the formal qualification. In some instances relevant experience and/or on-the-job training may be required in addition to the formal qualification (ANZSCO Skill Level 1).
"

Can you please explain for us what does mean the following sentence:
At least five years of relevant experience and/or relevant vendor certification may substitute for the formal qualification?

Does it mean that in addition to the bachelor degree, my wife has to have a 5 years experience to get her skills assessed by Engineers Australia??

Any help will be deeply cherished.

Thanks in advance

It means that for those wishing to enter this position without a Bachelors degree, 5 years of relevant experience or vendor certifications may be viewed as equal or similar to holding a Bachelors degree.

This is particularly relevant to those who have finished high school and undertaken apprenticeships, or enrolled in certification programs, and I would guess that the statement is referring to the general Australian population rather than the prospective migrant population.

Assuming your wife holds a Bachelors degree from a country other than Australia, she may have to be tested or retrained before she is licensed to work as an engineer in Australia, as engineering compliance standards differ between countries. I would recommend contacting Engineers Australia to discuss your individual circumstances.
