Thanks Prakash,

So do you suggest to go with ACS assessing both of us as "Software Engineer" instead of me going as "Software Tester"?

I checked the website and it kind of mentions that Partner skill should also be assessed in the occupation from the same list (i.e. in my case Software engineer is the only option under MLTSSL). See below:

Partner skills

You can claim partner skills if, when you are invited, your partner:
•is under 50 years of age
•has competent English
has an occupation that is on the same skilled occupations list as your nominated occupation
has been assessed by the relevant assessing authority as having suitable skills for their nominated occupation
•is coming to Australia with you
•is not an Australian citizen or permanent resident.

Yes. It would be better as states are not sponsoring everybody. Its better to be on independent visa so that job search would be easier too.

Hi Raman, I think checking on states websites would be best way, some if the state websites offer newsletter or alert sign off so that you are alerted as soon as things come up.
I think SA is open conditionally and TAS with job offer as prerequisite . I gotthis info from anzscosearch.com website some days back.

Btw, can you pls share some details on acs. What was ur qualification, how much they deducted etc?

I was won

NSW does not have a dedicated website for sponsorship

For NSW, you will have to apply through Skillselect, which you can do even now.
Its not closed

Even when other states which are currently closed for ICT applications, do reopen, dont get your hopes up as only very few Software Testers have been sponsored by any state in the past 1 year

Cheers

You should give your true RNR for assessment
Members give a RNR matching that of the ACS website just to get a positive assessment from ACS (It is sad and unfortunate that it is actively encouraged by some members on this forum)

But once they have submitted their Visa applications they start getting anxious about verification calls from AHC knowing fully well that they maybe in trouble as they have given a fabricated RNR

So in my opinion give a true RNR and hope for a positive assessment from ACS

Cheers

Hi gurus

Quick question regarding ACS skills assessment. Does the job title matter or is taking into account by ACS when assessing work experience? My job duties are highly relevant to the nominated occupation ICT Support engineer, but my official job title is desktop support specialist.

Wonder if this will affect the outcome? Thanks.

Question

Hello Guys

<span style='background-color:yellow'>I</span> have done regular MCA from university and I am a software eng<span style='background-color:yellow'>in</span>eer. Just wanted to know if ACS will still deduct 2 years of experience as a part of On Job Training which they usually cut from other degree holders ( like BTech , BSc, and so on) as they did not have gotten education from the stream they were working on in case of software engineers.

If anyone have experiences of their own or their known, please share it.

I look forward to hear from you guys at the soonest.

Cheers
Lucky
