glenn_somers is an unknown quantity at this point

Has anyone here either themselves or heard of someone receiving positive assessment from the ACS for someone who doesn't have a degree. I never went to university but do have the relevent 4 years experience and also completed a distance learning ICT course 4 years ago. In addition to this I have the two Cisco certifications (CCNA & CCNP) plus Microsoft's MCSE accreditation. The ACS rules and regulations seem very bent on people needing a degree.

Any help would be very appreciated.

Cheers

Yes, go for it - judging by your qualifications I would say you would recieve a
favourable assessment without a degree.

I have no degree but similar qualifications as you and I was given a 60pt assessment.

Good Luck

Barbara

I applied with an MCSE, a CNE and references covering the last 5 years (4 required),
and got an approval letter in about a month. The treat an MCSE or a CNE with 4 years
experience as a degree/diploma equivalent. Make sure that you include either your
Microsoft transcripts or copies of your exam pass sheets, other wise they will write
asking for them.

Cheers

Jamie

me to do the medical and police clearance. Now waiting for the immigration's reply.
You seem to have a few good Qualification. You should have no problems.

Hi Glenn,

Jamie is right, your MCSE will be treated as the equivalent of a diploma. You do need
detailed references which prove your four years professional experience, but you do
not need to do the full RPL process.

Cheers

George, May I just ask why he doesn't have to do the full RPL process?

Hi Annika,

There are a few professional certifications such as CLP, MCSE, MCSD which have been
approved by the Australian Computer Society as equal to an Australian diploma.
