It's Engineers Australia but if your employment is in the Computer/IT area and that's where you are to seek an occupational classification, then you ought to probably stick with ACS.

I'd suggest looking at which group offer professions that are higher in the skills occupation list. Perhaps they're more likely to take out IT professions than engineering ones.

Hi guys,

Is it okay to submit my skilled visa application before getting my skills assessed? There's this part of the form where I need to enter the nominated occupation and name of assessing authority. However, I can proceed to the next page if I leave the "name of assessing authority" empty.

I am a software engineer.

No you can't. You have to submit your assessment application first.

For 885/886 you have to have the assessment granted

For 485 you have to have a lodgement done, so you just have to submit it and get a reference number to apply. The visa takes roughlt 13 months to grant. You cannot do DRC if you don't have your assessment.

I'm applying for Sponsored (Migrant) Visa (Subclass 176). For a software engineer, I would have to go to ACS then? How long will this assessment take?
