The Australian Computer Society (ACS) has notified changes in skills and qualifications assessment for certain occupations to come into effect from 01 July 2020.
The ACS will undertake skills assessment of 3 occupations, i.e., Database Administrator (ANZSCO 262111), ICT Security Specialist (ANZSCO 262112), and Systems Administrator (ANZSCO 262113) based on separate criteria for cyber security. Further, the ACS will not accept analogue and other non-ICT related electronics subjects for assessing qualifications for electronics subjects and accordingly, only digital electronics subjects will be considered for assessment. Furthermore, regarding recognising qualifications under the Seoul Accord for countries including South Korea, USA, UK, Canada, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Japan, the burden of proof lies on the applicant to demonstrate the validity of the qualification.
For skilled migration to Australia in ICT sector, the relevant skills assessment authority is the ACS. It ensures that you meet the relevant standards needed for employment in an eligible ICT skilled occupation by assessing your academic qualifications and work experience.
