Default Claiming PR points for education

Hi all,

Just wanted to know if a positive Migration Skill Assessment from Engineers Australia can be used to claim PR points for both work experience AND education or do we need a separate assessment for education?

Everything depends on what exactly is written in the assessment report. In most of cases the answer will be yes skill assessment report will be sufficient to claim work experience and education points. However, in some cases, when the education certificate is not related to the skills assessing authority the applicant needs to assess the qualification separately.

It is not compulsory to get your work experience assessed
But then you have the risk in case the CO is not satisfied with your experience claim

Thanks for the reply! I have done my B.tech in Civil Engineering and I intend to claim work experience points for working as a civil engineer for 5yrs. So in my case my Engineers Australia assessment should cover both work experience and education right?

Thanks for the reply. I think I'll do my skill assessment just in case to be on the safer side.

I don’t know if you’ve read the EA guide? I think that’s the first place to start.

I don't know much about Engineers Australia as I have done my assessment with ACS. However, you have to apply for the assessment following the guide from their website and provide all your documents (work and education) then the final say will be for the assessing authority.
