Default ACS Assessment : Software Tester to Software Engineer

Hi,

I had been assessed as a Software Tester by ACS in Nov 2011. I have done coding for Test Automation scripts/Performance testing and all the relevant details has been provided in the resume submitted to ACS at that time. Since then, i'm more working on Performance testing which involves design & coding and now i wanted to apply for ACS assessment again (as its going to expire in Nov 2013 anyway). My questions are
1. Is it possible to apply for Software Engineer this time?
2. Will ACS consider the previous experience as well? Even though i had worked on design & coding in the past, ACS already assessed me a Software tester. Will they re-assess and consider my previous experience for Software engineer?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Default Hey

Even I have a similar issue...I have been assessed to be suitable for migration under 261314 (Software tester) of the ANZSCO code by the ACS. I need to know if my profession can be re-applied under "Software Engineer", as I am involved in design, development/coding and deployment phases working as Software Automation Engineer.

What's your status now?

Hi ,
Im also facing the same issue. Dont want to apply as a Tester so applying as a programmer rather. Im planning to including automation scripting and a bit of coding part. Im working as QA Analyst. My manager is afraid if company knows that he is referring someone they might fire him. I can't get letter of my choice from HR so finding someone who can give me a reference letter.

I understand that you have received Vic SS long back. Till Nov 2013, its a safe period for you to get the visa grant. Moreover you can inform DIAC for priority processing of visa when the ACS expiry date is closer. Why do you want to get accessed as Software Engineer?

Hi Sonal,

Any luck after this?

I have 65 points without state sponsorship and overall IELTS score of 7.5 with minimum of 7 in each category.I am a S/W Tester too and I wanted to use 190 visa path for improving my chances and increasing my overall score but looks like that is the toughest and lengthy processing route after reading yours and many others' comments.

I am in a dilemma even to proceed now.
Please reply back so that I will atleast know what happens to a generic case like ours.
Wishing you good luck.

Regards,
Paddy.
