Default ACS Assessment result 261111 (ICT Business Analyst)

Folks,
I did ACS assessment and I need please your help in next steps, I'll copy below the assessment result as well.
According to the assessment can I claim diploma and 8 years of work experience in regard to the points can be considered? This is very important to count the points.
Thanks a lot and looking for your valuable feedback as usual.

When I asked ACS about the experience, got the following reply:

it's quite clear, AQF Diploma with a major in computing not closely related.
You can only claim experience after March 2009 (so start April 2009-present)
so, 4 years at the moment, but will turn 5 years worth of experience next month

The assessment is precise to the point.
You can claim employment from April 2009, e.g. less than 5 years (or almost 5 years).
If you have continued to work at the same company after you lodged for assessment, then you can wait till April and claim 5 years of experience. If not, you can only claim 3 years of experience (e.g. from 3 to 5 as per DIBP rules).

You can get the summary of their rules on their web-site (it CLEARLY explains why and how they deduct years of experience depending on education).

thank you tipzstamatic and Deejay_TNT , in this case I can claim only two years of experience from April 2009 to April 2011 "the last date I worked with that company since the next job ACS considered it not related.

alright in this case, for my diploma I'll get zero points also since it is not closely related?

Regards,

No, for education you can claim 10 points as your education equals "Diploma" level (NOT Bachelor degree, just Diploma).
Here are the links:
https://www.acs.org.au/__data/assets...Applicants.pdf
https://www.acs.org.au/__data/assets...teria-2014.pdf
http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/booklets/1119.pdf

Update, you can see it clearly in the assessment result: "Your Diploma of Communication and Computer Networks from xxxxxx University completed January 2003 has been assessed as comparable to an AQF Diploma with a major in computing "

Small point to make it more clear since ACS didn't consider any of my current work (3 years) if I do the assessment for different occupation and by then I may have the possibility to get the last 3 years considered also, can it work in this way?

It MAY work, but not sure.
I assesed 2 occupations, Systems Engineer and Systems Administrator at ACS (then applied as Systems Engineer). So, you can try.
Did ACS give you any feedback why your last jobs were irrelevant? What occupation/codes do your last jobs fall into?

Default Review ACS assessment

Hello Friends,

I'm in my way to submit a review to ACS and I need your help please to make it working this time, I've been working in my current job for three years now and the exp. letter I submitted initially was from April/11 to Dec/13, it was written in the letter that my title is Business Analyst but most of the tasks/duties "almost 30" listed by HR was more related to the Project Management since I'm responsible also to track the delivery from resources point of view. please note also that my current employer is mainly in the IT security field.

Keeping this in mind, what is the best way to submit a review to ACS indicating more of my actual duties for my current work? and would this kind of review be acceptable or ACS will consider it huge difference?

if it is acceptable, do I have to justify the difference or it will go through normal assessment?

If the HR refuses to give me update exp. reference, can I submit a SD with updated duties although I submitted initially an Exp. letter? or this way is not recommended?

can I use this review with new document to cover my last 4 months of experience till to date 22/4?

and can I submit the duties summarized in five pullets only rather than much details?

if that would work, is there any other documents will be required for review? what I should expect, please share some tips to be considered

Here are the additional duties I'm thinking to add:

- Conducting the required business analysis of our properties management software which is built using visual C++ and Microsoft SQL server.
- Collecting, understanding and transmitting the business requirements for the project, and translate these into functional specifications and detailed test plans.
- Document workflows and results of business analysis and obtain sign-off from business users on the specifications.
- Design and execute the test scenarios and test scripts.
- Managing and guiding Business solution department.

I'd eagerly looking for you advices.

Thanks a lot
