Australian Computer Society (ACS)

The Australian Computer Society (ACS) is a skills assessments provider for all jobs related to the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) industry.

The ACS skills assessments are target to all qualified workers from overseas whose educational qualifications and work experience are at a professional ICT level and closely related to the nominated occupation (ANZSCO) for migration purposes.

If your occupation is included in the Skilled Occupations List (SOL) or in the Consolidated Sponsored Occupations List (CSOL) you may be required to undertake a skills assessment in your application for the Employer Nomination Scheme and any Skilled Visa.

Your qualifications are firstly assessed to determine the Australian Qualification Framework (AQF) comparability using Australian national education standards. After the AQF comparability is established, the course units are assessed to establish the professional ICT content of your qualification. Each unit is assessed to determine if it is considered an ICT professional unit or not. This assessment outcome will determine if your qualification is a Major, Minor or it the ICT content is Insufficient. Having a qualification may be not compulsory if you have extensive experience in the area (over 6 years) and provided you can show the right set of skills and knowledge.

Get Your Visa relies on our expert Migration Agent able to assist you in order to form the most accurate ACS skills assessment for your visa application.

As first step, Get Your Visa will work on a pre-assessment in order to evaluate your general, academic and professional situation before starting working on your skills assessment.

Australian Computer Society (ACS) FAQ

Can I lodge 2 applications at once with 2 different ANZSCO nominations?

No, you can’t have two simultaneous applications lodged at ACS. Our Migration Agent will apply one ANZSCO nomination as you can only have one active application at a time. If your original application is unsuccessful, our Migration Agent may advise to submit a Review application to be assessed under a different ANZSCO code if relevant or apply for another suitable ANZSCO occupation.

I have more than one qualification. Do I need to submit all of them?

Our Migration Agent will require you to supply all the tertiary qualifications you own as they are all eligible to be assessed, however only the suitable ones will be sent to the ACS.
