189 Skill Select Partner skills

One of the requirements for claiming partner's 5 points for 189 skill select application is following:
- had nominated an occupation on the same skilled occupation list as your nominated occupation.

I am not understanding what "same" skilled occupation list mean here? I have seen only one skilled occupation list which is - immi.gov.au/Work/Pages/skilled-occupations-lists/sol.aspx. Can someone please advise me here?

For instance, if primary applicant has "Telecommunications Engineer" as nominated occupation, can 5 points be claimed from partner if partner's nominated occupation is "Software Engineer"?

If someone can clarify this, it would be very helpful to me. Thank you.

There are 2 occupation lists - the SOL which you've mentioned above, and the CSOL which is for occupations requiring state or employer sponsorship. If you're applying for a 189 (requires occupation on the SOL), then your partner's occupation also has to be on the SOL. If Software Engineer is also on the SOL and your partner receives a positive skills assessment, then you could claim 5 points.

Thank you for the response.

I have additional confusion on the partner nominated skills. My spouse had this experience 5 years ago and no work at the current moment. With this situation, will I still be able to claim 5 points if let's say the skills are assessed and approved by the relevant assessing authority?

As long as the skills assessment is positive you can claim the 5 points. If it's negative, you can not.
