Hello to everyone, Im new to this forum. My name is Federico and I'm an Italian chef, I live in Australia since 2011.

I was browsing the immigration website to have a better understanding of how points are calculated and I came across few things I don't really understand.

A bit of background, I've completed an Advanced Diploma in Hospitality, this includes also Certificate III and IV in Commercial Cookery.

Immi website says:

- A diploma or trade qualification completed in Australia points 10
- An award or qualification recognised by the relevant assessing authority for your nominated skilled occupation. points 10

Australian study requirement
- At least one degree, diploma or trade qualification from an Australian educational institution that meets the Australian study requirement. points 5


ok now... my adv diploma is considered as " A diploma or trade qualification completed in Australia", I get my 10 points...

Will I be able to also claim these extra 5 points using the Certificate III or IV as well? or is pure madness what I'm saying?

I miss 5 points out of 60 to be able to lodge my EOI, I'm considering the NAATI accreditation as interpreter but if I can avoid to spend another 1000$ I'll do so.

Got IELTS 7 overall but my writing doesn't go over 6... not really a writer, so I give up on that, tried 5 times already eheheh

Hope someone will help me to make some clarification on this matter.

Thank you!
