Default ACS >> RPL >> VETASSESS : do I need VETASSESS assessment for applying for EOI ?

Hi All,

I am from Non-IT background and had applied for Skills Assessment with ACS. After waiting for 3 months ACS had asked me to apply for RPL application type.

I read in forums that for people from non-IT background VETASSESS assessment is mandatory as it would be required by DIAC.

Please suggest me if I would require VETASSESS assessment ?
Can I apply for VETASSESS assessment even before ACS or DIAC ask for it? ( They might ask in future )

I have checked the VETASSESS website, there are a lot of applications/categories, please suggest which one suites me ?

Can I write a mail to VETASSESS or DIAC on this ? If so, please provide their email IDs.

regards,
aravind

Hi Aravind,

I am also in a similar situation, where I am going to apply through RPL route to ACS for skill assessment.

With regards to Vetassess, you would need to go through "Point Test Advice" (Points Test Advice (General professional occupation) - VETASSESS). This is basically to say that your qualification is equivalent to a degree/diploma etc in Australia.

ACS would usually not comment anything on your qualification until it has any ICT component in it.

It is usually beneficial to take Point Test advice through Vetassess before you reach the visa application stage with DIAC. As you never know, if CO would wait for the time period required by Vetassess to complete the Point Test Advice.

Would request any Seniors to comment too.

Thanks!

Hi,

I had got my ACS assessment done along with VETASSESS. My ACS assessment outcome was

Your qualification has been assessed as follows:
Your Bachelor of Engineering from XXX completed June 2004 has been
assessed as comparable to an AQF Bachelor Degree with a major in computing

And my experience of 4 years was deducted from total experience.

I also submitted for VETASSESS assessment. Since I got a positive outcome from ACS, I did not bother about VETASSESS. Now my agent is saying I need VETASSESS outcome as well. The problem is I have not yet received a letter from VETASSESS. I got an email from them saying it is completed on 14th October, however I have not received any letter yet. I have mailed them today saying that I have not recieved the letter.

Can anybody help me here? Anybody faced similar issue?

Also is the VETASSESS letter required if ACS assessment is positive?

Thanks,
SNCJ

If ACS are not assessing your qualifications you must get them assessed by vetasses IF you want to claim education points.

If you claim education points in EOI before having the qualifications assessed you will be claiming points you do not qualify for. Any invite would be based on you overclaiming and the application will be rejected.

hi SNCJ,

VETASSESS is required only if ACS doesn't assess your qualification. Since the ACS has already said :
================================================== ========

Your Bachelor of Engineering from XXX completed June 2004 has been
assessed as comparable to an AQF Bachelor Degree with a major in computing

================================================== ========

this means your qualification is also assessed so don't wait for VETASSESS, go ahead and apply EOI.

regards,
aravind

hi all,

I have the complete thread and i am confused here. i need guidance please

I have bachelors degree in Non ICT, with HDSE from Aptech, 10 years into IT closely related to analyst programmer

I am almost in the final stages of getting the staturatory declaration, i have hired the services of MARA agent and my RPL is ready

My Concern is that since i am non ICT major how many years of my experience would be deducted from the total 10 years and how should i apply 3q

My agent only told me about RPL since my bachelors in completely Non ICT, but vetaassess is completly new for me

Why is so important to get the Points assessed from this body rather than ACS ?

If your degree contains some ict content acs may assess it. If they ignore it and you want to claim education points your qualifications need to be assessed as equivalent to the Australian qualifications framework. Vetassess will do that for you. If you do not want to claim education points you do not need to get it assessed.

My degree is all in natural science, however i have had many course in computer programming since my childhood and have records of them (certificate) will this help me ?


I have read on the ACS website that if the content of the bachelors is non ICT ACS, 4 - 6 years of relevant is required in the closely nominated field....

Should i go with the vetaassess before the ACS assessment ?

Hi sameer,

You can apply parallely for both ACS & VETASSESS (only qualification !!!) assessments.

Based on individual cases they deduct 4 - 6 years of exp.

for cases in which ACS can't assess qualifications they would deduct 6 years exp.

but for you, as you have certificates of the IT courses that you had attended, things like which course u have attended (i mean content of the course), which institute have learned from and the duration of the course will be considered. To be optimistic they should deduct only 4 years of exp. in your case

Please consult experts for actual info. on no. of years of exp. that would be deducted
