Bit difficult as we don't know if your experience corresponds to the "Civil Engineering Technician" that shows up on the LTSS list. Also need to take into account if your qualification is recognised by Immi NZ? "No" to both of the above and you really would be very, very short on points indeed.

If you're really struggling with points calculations, then I would recommend seeking the services of an Immigration Consultant. There's some great people on here for providing advice to very specific questions, but they can't know your full circumstances and as such a Consultant who you can speak with face-to-face would be in a much better position to help.

Yes, for instance whether you gained your experience in a comparable labour market etc is all important as to whether it counts.....

Can't vouch for the accuracy of 3rd party websites and all that, but a list of comparable labour markets and an explanation of the term "labour market" can be found if you

CLICKY HERE

Iran is not mentioned - although you don't say where your experience was gained so this may not be a problem?

If you are still struggling with this, I really do recommend you speak to an immigration advisor and get them to go through the bits that you aren't happy with. On the surface of it, assuming your experience is in Iran, I'd say you've got two hopes (and Bob's dead), but I'm no expert and a professional may be able to see things in an entirely different light and get you through the process. Maybe even in time for the World Cup if you get a wriggle on!!!

Here is the definition on the NZ Immigration site, Iran isn't listed so your experience won't count unless you were working for a multinational in Iran (assuming that is where your work experience is/was). Link is here

So no job offer, no experience and no recognised qualification sounds like an uphill battle but as said before you should seek advice from an immigration advisor...
