Default Who's been successful part qualifed?

Hi guys,

Having another wobble.

OH is a part qualified Accountant. He has completed half of his ACCA designation and is not currently studying as he works full time.

Will our chances of getting into Canada decrease because of this? We exceed the 67 points and both have family in Canada. Also, we applied under NOC 1111 but we have heard mixed views about this maybe not being the correct code.

Any advice would be appreciated, thanks

Yeah there is going to be problems, if you read the NOC for 1111 there is no provision for 1/2 qualified you really have to be fully qualified. For example you wouldn't be considered a Dr. if you only took the pre-med part of the course.

When you say there is going to be a problem do you mean they will reject our application based on the code being incorrect?

If they do this will we have to start over? I don't remember reading anywhere that explains it in more detail, 1111 was the most relevant code we could find to match OH's occupation.

If they don't consider that your spouse is a "Financial Auditor and Accountants" NOC 1111 because he doesn't perform a majority or the duties or has the training required to perform those duties, they will refuse.

Hi,

thanks for your reply. He is fully competant at his job and has 7 years experience, just doesn't have that piece of paper to prove it. He does however have many clients that could give him references. Do you think that would be sufficient or will we need to re submit/amend our current application with the correct code?

Thanks.

Hi, I am sorry but have no idea on whether or not he needs to be fully qual. I always assumed that you do so waited to finish my CIMA.
If that is the case, its a good enough incentive to pull out all the stops to get rid of all those pesky exams, certainly worked for me as i finished mine, working full time with two small children. I am just saying, its do-able as long as you remain focused.

Good luck

Does anyone know if we will have to contact CIC to amend the code? Otherwise I guess we stand the chance of being rejected.

Please help!

Just looked this list up:

The occupations I have highlighted is where I get confused. I don't understand the difference between the Accountant/General Account and the Certified Accountant. Now, OH is an Accountant/General Accountant (PQ) So would the these apply to him as it does not specify 'Certified'

Thanks!

He does not have to be a fully qualified accountant for his application to be successful; as long as he can prove that he has been performing the duties under the occupation he is applying to come in as.

I am pretty sure of this because I got mine before I fully qualified.

I've been reading this and will be keeping my fingers crossed for you.

My main concern would be that its all well and good you saying "thats fine no worries he can prove he can do it" but should heaven forbid the worst happen and they refuse - you will get a letter saying he doesn't meet the code. Is there anyway that you can send in supporting documents before that may or may not happen?

I don't know if thats feasible though - what docs did you send in with your app to show that he is carrying out the majority - if not all - of the duties under the code?

Thanks MMC

We completed our application and sent it off with no backup paperwork. Tbh, there was nothing that stated we needed proof at the time. I guess we just have to send in certificates and references when we get our 90 day letter?

I wouldn't have a clue how to send in additional information at this point, and I am not sure they would even accept it.
