Smile RPL or Skills Assessment

My husband is an Electrical Engineer with 14 years of IT experience.

As per ACS assessment criteria, he is neither a ICT Major or ICT Major but has IT expereince.

AS per my understanding,

1. His Application Type should be RPL.
2. Qualifications assessed under 'Group C'
3. Can he apply under 261313 - Software Engineer, if his experience meets required criteria?

Please correct me if I am wrong. Any more information is welcome.

Neela.

Yes, he needs to undergo the RPL route.

Make sure to read the responsibilities of a Software Engineer and see if they closely match your husband's responsibilities.

All the best!!

Hi neelarao,

As per your advice in the other thread, you advised me to go the RPL way. Could you please share where I need to apply for RPL. I am browsing since morning, I have read and understood what RPL is. But I am not able to find any place where we need to actually apply.

Also, I do not have documents of my first job, it was a small time training institute where I was working as an instructor. Do you know what documents are exactly required to prove work experience.

Please help! If I have to let go documents of my first job, then I will not be able to meet the criteria of 5+ years of experience.

Thanks in Advance. Any advise appreciated.

Check out this site:
SkillSelect

Go to the 'Login to Skillselect'. Here you need to create a username and password, from there you need to select the option of RPL and upload the notarized documents.

With regards the experience letter of your first job, ideally you should get an experience letter on the company's letterhead from your reporting manager. If that is not possible then a declaration from any of your colleague containing the description of your skills, a self declaration from your side stating the reasons for not obtaining the experience letter, any appointment letter, pay slips or any other documents which prove you were employed by that particular company is needed. The documentation is important because I read in some of the posts here that ACS could verify the experience.

This is what we are doing, but dont know if this is enough though.

Regards,
Neela

Thanks neelarao,

Will begin to collate documents and will try find friends / colleagues from my first job.

So, copies of all documents needs to be notarized. Thanks so much for telling me this.

Good luck.

You need to refer to the skills assessment guidelines document on the ACS website.

My understanding is that you can go for skills assessment if the ICT subjects in your BE course at least 20% of the curriculum. Your should consider all the subjects/papers in all the years/semesters of your BE. Also, your qualifications should be closely related to your chosen nominated occupation ANZSCO Code.

If this criteria is not met, then you need to go in for RPL.

thanks for that. but how do i calculate that 20% and validate it? Also if i have 8+ years of experience in IT including 2+ in Australia does my qualification and its relevance really matters? What are the docs apart from RPL which i can start with and also anything that would require validation in Australia so that i can get them processed before leaving in Dec
