Default Professional Engineer Visa 190 for NSW - Employment History Experience

Hello, I am currently completing the EOI for the 190 state sponsored visa and have a query regarding employment history. I have worked as a Civil Engineer in the UK since 2008 but have studied part time whilst doing so. This means that although I had 2 No. HNC's prior to working I only completed my Masters in 2017.

When obtaining my skills assessment from Engineers Australia I opted to have a Relevant Skilled Employment Assessment (perhaps this was a mistake?). Unfortunately they only consider employment following graduation as valid. Only the Masters degree has been validated.

My question is do I select 10 years of relevant employment on the EOI or 1 year since graduating? I can prove that I worked during this period as an engineerbut is it now compromised?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks
James

The skill set page states the following:

Provide details of the client’s employment history for the last 10 years.

For current employment, the 'end date' field should be left blank. SkillSelect will continue to tally periods of employment from date of EOI submission to the date of invitation to apply. Therefore, the client must update their EOI if their employment details change.

For Points Tested visas:
To be awarded points for employment it must meet three requirements:

it was undertaken after the client meets at least the entry level requirements as set by the relevant assessing authority for that occupation (that is, completed a sufficient level of study and or amount of on-the-job training);
it involved duties at the level of depth and complexity expected in Australia, and
it meets the standards of skilled employment set by the relevant assessing authority for that occupation.
A client is considered skilled and therefore eligible for claiming employment points from the date the relevant assessing authority considers a client to be skilled in the nominated occupation.

It is beneficial for the client to obtain advice on their skilled employment by the relevant skills assessing authority as it provides clarity on the number of points the client is eligible for. Visa processing officers provide precedence to this advice when assessing employment history.

IMPORTANT: Clients who have an opinion on their skilled employment from the relevant assessing authority should enter employment periods as specified on the letter from the assessing authority.

Where the relevant assessing authority does not provide an opinion on skilled employment and there are no standards set by the relevant assessing authority available on their website, clients need to provide evidence of employment experience after the date they completed qualifications and necessary skilled employment as per the Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations.

Any periods of skilled employment must have been undertaken at the required skill level. Any gaps which are periods when the client was not in employment cannot be counted as periods of skilled employment. While the client is able to include previous employment that is not related to the nominated or closely related occupation, no points will be awarded.

Note that I am on 70 points for the 190 visa without my work experience but would have 85 points otherwise. If I were to include my experience pre degree qualification (the text states afterwards) could this be proven via colleague reference, or signed off approval forms?

I don't want to over egg my points then be rejected....

Engineers Australia, the assessing body states:

4.4 Important Notes:
• Work experience cannot be claimed before the completion
of the applicable qualification

In determining whether an applicant's skilled
employment is closely related to their nominated
occupation, the assessment by Engineers Australia
will take into consideration the occupations within
one unit group classified under the ANZSCO
Classification of Occupations. Be aware that only
work experience gained after completion of
the qualific
ation supporting your nominated
occupation will be recognised.

So it appears clear that I can't include this experience, even though it is with the same company. Any advise would be appreciated however!

Thanks
