Arrow ACS Assessment - 263111 Computer Network and Systems Engineer

Hello fellas.

I'm planning to apply for Visa 189 late this year, I've got a bachelor of Computing Engineering degree. I've work as telecommunications and networking specialist, but acctually all my duties and responsibilities are like a network engineer's ones (I've check on acs website), also I've got lots of Cisco Certifications such as CCNP, CCDP and CCNA-Security. So, in practice, I work as a engineer, but the company that I work for didn't hire me as engineer just to save money. So, I was wondering, do you guys think if I apply for the visa 189, I would be succesfully approved? Do you guys think, that even though I work as a specialit in the documents, my bachelor of Computing Engineering degree could help me to be accepted?

Is there anyone else in the same situation?

Thanks a million guys, this issue has been hanging over my mind for a long time. I need to know it as soon as possible, because if ACS rejects my application I would have to look for another company to start work as a network engineer.

Hello,

Your title does not matter, you have to ask your employer to detail your duties at work in your reference letter. If they are closely related to Network Engineer then I believe you will get a positive assessment. Also your degree must be closely related to the nominated occupation. Hope this helps

Hi guys/ladies,

I was wondering should I try for Computer Network and Systems Engineer (263111) under 189 visa.

My age is 30 which equate to 30 points.
I have a Bachelor of Computer Sciences with University of Wollongong which I obtained in Singapore but, accredited by Australia. That secures 15 points. The date of the certificate 19 May 2014.

So the tricky part is work experience. Currently, I am working as a product engineer for 1year 6 months since 1st April 2013. My past work experience is under Military which will be listed as classified job scope but, my current job scope is closely related to my past experience. I have been with the Military for 7 years 6 months since September 2005. Will I be entitled to the points for work experience?

Thanks for all the help in advance...

Hello Everybody,

I'm in a dilemma at the moment.

I wish to apply for 189 visa and I am reaching the required 60 points.

Only problem I have at the moment is that:

I have recently been promoted to Project Manager but still working in the same company and domain of networking equipment and VOIP and Telephony.

Total work experience - 9 years
Engineer - 8 years
Project Manager - 1 year

I have been working as an engineer for 8 years and acquiring 5 points for 3 years experience due to having just a diploma. So they minus off 5 years from the total. I have received a positive ACS assessment previously.

But the question is, can I lodge an application on the basis of ACS 263111 keeping in consideration that I have been working as a project manager for the past 1 year? Will this be acceptable?

I'm my opinion you should just mention your experience as an engineer. You don't even have to mention your project manager experience. You're claiming point as an engineer not as a project manager, so why would you even mention that? Seems irrelevant to me. Just my 2 cents. Cheers!

All the best.

Thank you for the quick reply

What I am concerned about is if the application is successful and is handed over to CO, and when they do the verification checks, my current role is that of a project manager. Even though there are documents to suggest the transfer from engineer to project manager.

Will the CO raise concerns regarding the change of roles is what my concern would be. Or are they flexible regarding role change in the past year (in this case just a promotion to being project manager managing same products and equipment)?

Do they base the application for 189 solely on points accumulated for the particular ANZCO code 263111 (in this case 5 points for 3 years experience)? Or do I have to be currently working in the same role as what I applied for (i.e. engineer)?

Any shared thoughts of similar experiences would be of much help.
