Hi,

I'm fairly new here, have been spending a few weeks time browsing through a lot of very useful info on this forum but I'm looking for some advice about ACS Skills Assessment, hence my first post.

I've been working in IT for nearly 9 years. The vast majority of this has been in designing/developing/supporting Java applications. I'm also a Sun Certified Java Programmer. However more recently, in the last year or so, I've been leading an application support team as a project manager, so not been involved in development.

With the recent changes in the CSL, and the fact that IT project managers don't appear to be highly sought after, I was thinking that I could apply for a visa to Australia under "Computing Professional - specialising in Java (2231-79)". I'm not sure how this would be assessed by the ACS, given that it is not what I am currently working on, despite my wealth of experience (which I can show on my CV and get references for).

Thoughts, comments or suggestions welcome.

Thanks

hi penfold

welcome to the forum. the assessment majorly depends on your references, and otehr documents, if u can prove u work currently in Java, u can be assessed for the same. its all about the documents u provide. You see they give u the asco code looking at the documents u give them. in the cv u got to stress more on the said field, make it the most elaborate and it might be possible.

hope this helps

cheers

Thanks anj. I guess this is my main issue. I can't prove that I'm currently working in Java, as I'm in a project management/delivery role. But I can prove that I have extensive experience in Java, and certification to back it up. I just hope that is enough.
