Default New rules...can anyone shed some light?

Posting this for a time short mate...better here than where originally asked

I have been in IT support for about 10 years currently just starting in consultancy. I do not have a degree in computer science but do have a BSc in Psychology.
Under the new rules work experience should be able to be counted as well as, or instead of formal training and qualifications, provided it comes from a comparable labour market.

I phoned NZQA this morning to ask who would be doing the work experience assessments under the new NZIS rules. NZQA stated it would not be them . They just do overseas qualifications. It was suggested that the appropriate NZ training organisation would perhaps assess work experience where there was no formal overseas qualification to take into consideration.

It's all a bit of a puzzle right now.

Anyone know what the new ruling means to his situation? Surely he can claim points for degree (just because it's a degree)...then claim points for work experience (IT) irrespective of whether this experience is related to his initial degree (Psychology).

Confirmation would be great. Ta
