Default Subclass 189 - Partner Assessment

Hello fellow expats

I have a question regarding Skilled Independent visa (subclass 189) points calculated.

As part of this visa i want to also include my partner. For her to be eligible she needs to have a suitable skills assessment from the relevant assessing authority for their nominated skilled occupation.

The problem is that she has 5 years working experience as a Software Engineer, but she doesn't have a diploma of any kind in this area. What she does have is a bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineering (but 0 days working experience in that area).
  • Does anyone here knows if this kind of experience will be suitable for gaining 5 more points from the Partner skill section?
  • Can she send her diploma in Mechanical engineering up for assessment?
  • Or is there some option to have her working experience as software engineer assessed without the diploma?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Per information given by ACS (which manages IT assessments), she would need at least 6 years relevant ICT work experience completed anytime in past work history plus a successful RPL application if she has a non-IT Diploma degree or higher, so at the moment she is not eligible. More information here. And here on page 6 more information about RPL assessment. If her degree doesn't get recognised she will need a minimum of 8 years of job experience. Either way, you will have to wait or try and get an English certificate (IELTS, PTE etc) to get 5 points for communicative English after Nov changes.

I believe she can get herself assessed as Mechanical engineer by Engineers Australia based on three career episodes from University projects even if she has 0 experience.

Hope it helps.

If her engineering degree was recognised under the Washington / Sydney / Dublin Accord - it may be fairly easy for her to get assessed positively by Engineers Australia as suggested above.

Page 6-8 here is a good starting point:

Hi,

I am kind of sailing in the same boat. Instead of Mechanical Engineering I hold a Bachelors degree in Civil Engineering and 8 years in Technical Sales experience.

I have done only one project as a part of my academic curriculum. Not sure If adding this one project as career episode 1 and the experience I gained from the two previsions employers are Career Episodes 2&3 will help me get a positive assessment from Engineers Australia.

Struggling a little bit, to be honest, to prepare the documents that will suppoprt me well.

Any advise will help me a lot.

Thanks

Chin

Is the products in your profession as technical sales related to Civil Engineering? If so, you can have your CDR1 as the academic project (which sure will have civil elements) and CDR2 & 3 can be any 2 projects from your professional career.

However, for approving CDR1, you have to submit the original report, signed and stamped by the Uni.

We are in the process of applying for a skills assessment from EA for my wife in order to claim spouse skill points and we are following the same format as above. Will submit the application in a week and post the updates here.

Thank you Vineethviswan,

Yes the CDR 2 will be related to civil engineering.. However CDR 3 will be purely technical sales in heavy machines industry.

Thanks for your advice, I will prepare the CDRs accordingly. And yes I do have the original signed & stamped academic project report from Uni with me.

Will keep it posted here how things move on my side.

Cheers

Chin

Try to relate CDR 3 with that of the roles and responsibilities mentioned in the specific ANZSCO code you intend to apply
