Question diff between "software tester" and "ICT software test engineer"

Hi,
I have a ACS approval as "Software tester", but currently it's only available for state sponsorship in Victoria, unfortunately i don't have 7 bands each in IELTS.

Recently i came across another profile "ICT software test engineer" which is available in ACT and south australia for state sponsorship.

Can you please help me know what is the exact difference between "software tester" and "ICT software test engineer".

Can i apply again for ACS approval as "software test engineer"? or will ACS approve me again as "software tester"

need your opinion urgently.

thanks.

What I feel is you are trying to apply for 176 and need a SS for that. It is better to approach by researching about 'your kind of 'job availability in sponsoring state that just applying ACS again to secure SS from some state.
BTW, what I feel is mostly ACS may again assess you as s/w tester only as they have your profile assessed already.
The difference between 2 job codes are clearly given in the 'ACSSkillsAssessmentOccupationCodes_2011V4_tasksGS M_RGJuly2011.pdf' document. it is just you go thro them and choose the one which is the best fit for your work experience. only you can judge what job code you are fit for. that is how I choose between Network Analyst and Computer Network/Systems Engineer...
BTW, try to get 7 in IELTS and apply for Vic where I feel more jobs are there compared to other states

Rohit, even I have same confusion with these 2 profiles. I also couldn't find any difference the job decriptions. Anyhow I also got ACS approval recently for Tester and currently, I can see only VIC SS available now.
Whr did u take ur IELTS? Do u think u can make it to 7 in each band if u go for it again?
Thanks,
Sri

1. So one should go for Software Tester or ICT Systems Test Engineer?
2. Vic is better but high refusal rate. Is this true?

THanks.

THanks.
both are very closely related occupation. If you are looking for Vic SS go for Software Tester as it is in their occ list else go for ICT sys test engineer.

Yes vic has high rejection rate but if you are docs are good enough to fetch you a SS don't worry about that. you will also get it.

Hi Rohit,

Both these occupations are closely related but in "ICT software test engineer" occupation, ACS requires that "They will also act as technical expert on the subject of testing processes and standards."

Some of the expected capabilities also differ in both occupations.
