Question ACS - Computer Professional (nec) MODL

Hi folks,

I'm getting all my documents ready to submit a skills assessment application in the next week with the hope of being assessed as a Computer Professional - specializing in Oracle (ASCO 2231-79 ).
I'm doing this because it will get me on the CSL, and as I understand that is the only shot applicants have at the time for a Skilled Independent Visa (Subclass 175).

Does anyone have experience with submitting a skills assessment application with the ACS for Computer Professional specializing in ...... ?

I've worked as a System Analyst for exactly 5 years and have been heavily involved with Oracle databases all along. Specifically what I've done is:

- PL/SQL Programming
- Data structure design
- Maintaining ETL scripts

Is this enough to be recognized as an Oracle specialist? What kind of experience does the ACS look for to grant such an assessment?

In the past year I've increasingly been working as a project manager and consultant. Will this diminish my chances?

I'd really appreciate some feedback on this. Many thanks!!!!

Hi canuck81,

Have you checked the ASCO requirements?
http://www.ausstats.abs.gov.au/Ausstats/free.nsf/Lookup/A86A0162E6F672DFCA256ADB001D10D4/$File/asco.pdf

And the ACS guidelines?
Australian Computer Society - Skills Assessment

(Both of those links are from the 'PLEASE READ...' post)

Other than that I can't help you any further.

Regards,
Karen

btu u hv documents to prove tht u were working in tht company? if yes then there shud be no problem. u can give a statutory declaration stating that the company isnt accommodating with the documents and u cn attach all documents to prove ur work experience in tht company and giv ereferences by co employees with respective business cards.

Hie Anju.....Thank you very much for the reply.....the painful part is that the co-employees are also diplomatically evading this request by saying that its against the company policy to issue reference on a hard copy.They can only give a reference if someone calls or writes to them....Its so frustrating n hard to hide my anguish
