189 Visa Pre and Post Qualification Overseas Experience
 
Hi All,

How is everyone I'm hoping someone is kind enough to answer the following :)

I graduated as a mechanical engineer in the UK 3.5 years ago and I have submitted an EOI for the 189 visa 2335 Indus, Mech, Prod Engineer.

My pre-qualification overseas experience includes
-a placement year (lasting 15 months) working as a Building Services Mechanical Engineer where I worked 37.5 hrs per week full time.
-A summer internship at a manufacturing Engineering company lasting 2 months (37.5 hrs per week full time)
-I also worked part time as an Building Services Mechanical Engineer for 10 months while studying (often longer than 20 hours per week)

My post qualification overseas experience includes
-worked as a full time Mechanical Engineer in the UK for 19 months

So all in including pre and post qualification work experience I have 36 months full time engineering experience and 10 months part time engineering experience.

I now work in Australia and have 5 months left on the skilled graduate visa with 70 points and updated my EOI with 70 points lat month with the 2335 Indus, Mech, Prod Engineer.

So the question I'm hoping to be answered is
-Does pre-qualification engineering experience count towards my overseas experience?
The reason I'm hoping it does count is I was performing the role of a full time engineer pre qualification (my previous employer would confirm this) as you don't need an engineering degree to be employed as an engineer (heaps in my UK office didn't).

I'd be grateful if anyone can offer advise on this or point me in the right direction to find the answer?

Thanks and best regards!

My understanding is only post-qualification employment will be deemed as in your nominated occupation or closely related to your nominated occupation for points claim purposes - this is a general rule of thumb across most skills assessing authorities.

The EA MSA booklet states so among other requirements on page 28-29,
"Work experience cannot be claimed before the completion of the applicable qualification"
