Hi,
I am little confused to decide which category I will select (General skilled or General skilled-RPL) for assessment. I have completed my three years graduation and one year master degree. My subject is applied physics and electronics. In master level, total 600 marks include Theory, project and practical but only 200 marks computer science related (100 theories, 50 practical and 50 projects) which is 30% of total course. I have more than 8 years experience in ICT sector. Pls give me suggestion which category is perfect for me?


Regards,

Yes, you can apply for skill assessment, they would consider you under group B. Nothing to worry if your degree is from recognised (govt.) university.

No special doc, completed assessment form, bank draft, recent CV, proof of education (educational certs and mark sheet, 10th 10+2, bachelors etc.). Evidence of experience(employment letters, salary certs.), evidence of specific experience (HR letters with your roles and duities)etc.

PASA assessment rules are changing 1Feb 2010.. So, i'll suggest you to apply before that.

Project report and CBOK is required for RPL not for skill assessment. Please refer to ACS website FAQ section, there are similar questions already answered.

Yes, you can include it under on job training or job related training, it is not required to to submit proof of on job training. you may have to furnish proof of conventional training though.

Dear Mr. India,
Thx for your valuable job description. But how can I add more description because Details (responsibilities etc.) column has no enough space. Do I attach additional paper for meaningful job description?

Another point is, I fill up the application but little confused for top of the application row (modl-if applicable) and Modl nomination column(SUMMARY OF RELEVANT EXPERIENCE table). What will I write another cell of Modl nomination column which I mention by question mark?

specialising in Network Security/Firewall/Internet Security

Hi,
Not sure what this is asking for exactly. I'm IT graduate ,CCNA/CCNP and I've worked with firewalls, Cisco Pix, ASA, Checkpoint, juniper, Loads of VPNs for over 12 months but i'm not a CCSP or a holder of a network security IT degree. Would i still be able to get the 60 points as a "Computing Professional - specialising in Network Security/Firewall/Internet Security "

There's not much explanation available about exactly what the ACS are expecting. Any help much appreciated

Cheers
Phil

Phil,

You have worked on technologies that ACS is expecting you to work on. What is your total IT experience. You must have atleast 6 years exp under group B or 4 years exp under group A to qualify.

If you have 4-6 years of work experience then I would say, you have a very good chance of positives assessment. I can also assure you that for Network security you do not need CCSP.

Wish you good luck...
