Default ACS re-validation, procedure and time

Hi Forum,

I have recently joined the forum. I must say it is pretty useful forum with an active helpful community

I would highly appreciate if forum can help me with following query.

I got my positive ACS on 25th of June 2011 (around 1.5 years) and It expired in June 2012. Someone told me that if I had not changed your job (the last job mentioned in ACS) then I could simply apply for re validation rather than going through whole ACS process again. I am still in the same company as I was while I applied for ACS last time.

1. What documents I would need to apply for re-validation ?
2. How long will it take ? will it be shorter than new ACS application or the same (I got my last ACS result in 2.5 months)
3. If someone who has already been through this could let me know the whole procedure.


Thank you.

Thank you.
I did my ACS re-validation and here is my experience:

1. You don't need to provide any document for re-validation (Actually you are not allowed to provide any document). You only need your previous reference number and pass word. Use those information to login, and then select re-validation.

To submit a Review, Appeal or Revalidation:
 Go to the Online Application Form
 Click on the “Linking to an Earlier Application” option
 The “Application ID & Password” field will automatically open
 Enter your previous ACS skills assessment Application ID number & Password
 The Review, Appeal or Revalidation options will appear in the application type menu

2. It usually takes about 2 weeks. But due to the Xmas & New year holiday, it might take longer if you apply now.

3. After submitting, you will be issued a new reference number. You don't need to do anything. When it is done, they will send the new assessment to you via email. The content will be exactly the same, other than the valid date. The new valid date will be 2 years from the new assessment being issued.

Hope this helps

Please note that by doing re-validation, your new work experiences won't be considered/added.

That means, if you had claimed 3 years work experience in your last assessment, if will still be 3 years in the new one. Even if you have worked another 2 years since then.

The re-validated assessment will be EXACTLY THE SAME in content, other than the valid date.

If you want to add new work experience, you'll need a new assessment.

AOA,
Brother answer to your question is YES u just need to re validate your ACS ...... if u want to include your 1.5 years experience to be evaluate ......

For Question 1:
I think u need your old ACS letter, a formal application stating why u want to re evaluate your credentials, latest experiences letter from your company with JDs .... i hope it would be enough

For Question 2:
I am sure it will be evaluated within 1 month (Max)



Regards,
Shoaib Anwar

No I am afraid it is not the case. In a revalidation application the candidate cannot add any new work experience. It is simply a 2 year extension of the previous assessment report.

I just did mine last month. During the process, i was not allowed to add any document.

If you want to add work experience, you'll have to lodge a new assessment.

thank you very much vintagebunnie,

yes, I need to add my new experience to ACS .. my last total work exp was 6.5 (as per last ACS assessment) and today it is 8.2 years of total experience.

So I guess in my case, I will have to reapply for ACS assessment rather than revalidation. correct ?

what was your total work exp per your last ACS and after how long you applied for revalidation ?

I was applying purely based on my degrees (I studied in Australia), so work experience was not a consideration for me. I applied when my last assessment result was about to expire.

I'm not sure if there is any way to just add your new experience to previous assessment. Maybe you could email them asking about it. Mention your previous reference number. Last time when I emailed them, they got back to me within 24 hours. The office closes between 21/12 - 14/01 though.
