I have applied for skill assessment and hold slighlty less than 3 year of experience.
But untill skill assessment result will come, my experience will become 3 years.

Now I need to claim 3 year experince points for Visa.

I hope that applying for skill assessment before actually having 3 year work experince will not create any issue at the time claiming 3 years experience for visa application??

well! 4 year is not required.
you get 10 points if you have 3 years exp in the concerned field out of last 4 years.

and my skill assessment will be done by Engineers Australia.

Following is the description for 'Specific work experience':
My nominated occupation is worth 60 points and I have worked in my nominated occupation for at least the past three out of four years (10 points)

3 out of 4 means that u should have 4 years of experience as total and within it atleast 3 Yrs should be the specific work experience.

:) no.

it means that you need to have 3 years experience. period.

now, if you had 1 year experience to start with and then you took 2 years break and then had 2 years experience, you can not combine your experience and claim points for 3 year experience.

because you are having 3 year exp out of last 5 years and not out of 4 years.

Quick one, why are you referring DIAC information, when you should be referring "Engineers Australia" guide ?

Without "Engineers Australia" assessment DIAC information doesn't hold good.
Please make sure you meed "Engineers Australia" specification guide.

Eg http://www.acs.org.au/assessment/docs/PASAGuidelinesforApplicants.doc

Rackspace, which PASA group have you applied under?

I have read Engineers Australia guide.
There is no requriement of experience.
Even if you have one year experience you can get assessment.

I am not sure what is PASA group?

Hi Rockspace,

I am also in the same category. I think it will not be an issue, because for visa you should have +ive skill assesment and 3 years of exp. So you can have skill assesment now and can apply for visa after completion of 3 years of experience.

This is what i think, because i'm doing the same.

There is a requirement for work experience by EngAus.

Unless you have studied an Australian engineering degree, or a degree from the signatory countries of the Washington Accord (Canada, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Ireland, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa, UK, USA, Australia), your degree is considered as "non-accredited" by EngineersAustralia.

For non-accredited degrees, you will need to prepare a Competency Demonstration Report (CDR). The details for a CDR can be found in:

1. Summary Statement for Professional Engineer

2. Application form for Competency Demonstration Report Migration Assessment

3. Skilled Migration Assessment Booklet

Pay particular attention to Secion 3 of the booklet; it says that a CDR must report 3 career episodes.

Also, EngAus will need an IELTS TRF with a minimum of 6 in each module to issue a positive skills assessment. It doesnt matter whether you give them an academic or general IELTS result.

P.S. "PASA" stands for Pre-Application Skills Assessment.

Thanks Twister for your reply.
Currently my exp. is 2.10. So I am applying for Skill assessment. By the time result will come my exp will be 3 years.

For filing the assessment I am facing problem in statuary declaration for my work experience. Because there are lot of things mentioned in the PASA guide such as:

"a reference from your colleague who occupies or has occupied a higher position than you"

I will appreciate if you can suggest how to go for statuary declaration. or any particular format for this?

Statutory declarations vary from one jurisdiction to another...check with someone familiar with Indian law about making a stat declaration in India...it is a fairly straightforward process usually...

Thanks Twister.
Can you suggest from where I can get any sample for this. I have tried on internet but did not find anything useful.

Or if Any one in this forum can provide the sample documents for work experience, that will be very helpful.

Thanks in advance.
