    Hello po sa mga na-visa grant na under Arch Draftsperson, gusto ko lang po magtanong tungkol sa EOI points claim. Kahapon po kase nag-email uli un DIAC sa akin tungkol sa EOI ko, i-review ko daw yung Educ Qualification, Skilled Employment, & Australian Study Requirement. Na-review ko na po ito last November, di ko nga po alam kung bakit nag-email sila uli. Sabay kanina, nakakuha na ko ng Invitation to apply for Visa 190, so naka-lock na yung EOI ko. Natatakot ako maglodge ng visa application kase baka may mali ako sa EOI ko.... Eto po un nilagay ko:

    1. Educ Qualification - Bachelor's degree Architecture sa Pinas & Master's Degree sa Sg, both may VETASSESS points advisory letter = 15 pts (bachelor's degree comparable to AU degree)

    2. Employment - 3 employment records in Sg from 2006 to present, may VETASSESS points
    advisory letter din = 10 pts (overseas employment 5+ yrs)

    3. Australian Study Requirement = 0 pt


    May mali po ba akong ginawa? :'(

    makapagtanong nga po, sino po ang marunong gumamit ng TEKLA software, or REVIT structure? may alam po kasi akong company who just recently sponsored someone from Phl (visa 457) as TEKLA user (structural drafter). i believe they are still in need of people who know how to use these programs, dito po ito sa QLD

    If Arch. Draftperson applyan mo sa Vetassess ka apply for assessment, but if Architect, dapat sa AACA..mas madaling makapasok d2 sa Au pag draftsperson unlike pag architect mahirap/ hindi pumapasa sa assessment ng AACA..once u got your PR visa and andito ka na, pede ka naman mag-apply for accreditation sa AACA so u can work as a registered architect..

    thanks akino. i was thinking of that fact as well, na baka mahirapan ako sa AACA and beside and mahal ng fee nila, nasa 1050AUD

    follow up question lang, if ang ipapaassess kong occupation is draftsperson sa vetasses, ok lang ba na young sa certificate of employment ko and nakasulat sa position ko is architect? di ba magcoconflict? then young isa ko pang employment certificate states that i worked as university lecturer sa college of architecture sa isang school sa phils. macrecredit ba yun as work experience related to draftsperson? thanks ulet.

    Im not really sure about that kc nung nagpa-assess me di pa required ang COE sa Vetassess..but one thing im sure is dapat makita dun sa COE mo na your're doing drafting stuffs..I think if u could put architect/draftsperson sa coe mas ok, then i add mo ung resposibilities usually ginagawa ng draftsman..
    check mo etong link about arki draftsperson description..

    http://www.immi.gov.au/asri/occupations/a/architectural-draftsperson.htm

    about dun sa Uni lecturer, mukang di cia pede kc malayo sa ginagawa ng draftsman..

    Mind you, wala sa SOL sched 1 ang architectural drafsperson, u need to be sponsored by a state/territory na included ang arki draftsperson sa skill list nila.

    oo nga eh, mejo malayo xa. pag di ko kasi sya sinama sa years of experience ko di ko makukuha yung 15pts for 8 years of experience kasi 5 years pa lang ako sa present company ko.

    true, nasa SOL sched 2 nag ung architectural draftsperson kaya need ko talaga ung SS. kung architect sana nasa SOL sched 1 xa kaya lang, sabi mo nga walang pumapasa sa AACA.

    @jvframos - pag 5 yrs lang ba ang work experience mo, hindi ka pa rin papasa sa passmark na 60pts for EOI Visa 190? so dapat 55pts ka + plus ung SS na 5 pt = 60pts..

    or you can opt to apply for Regional Temporary Visa 489.. that is additional 10 pts..
    so 50pts ka + 10 pts SS 489 = 60pts..

    Hello po, tanong ko lang, meron na ba naka-experience, or may nabalitaan na po ba kayo na nag-apply for assessment as Architectural Draftsman sa Vetassess na hindi pa nagte-take ng board exam? Graduate lang po ng Architecture at my 3 years work experience bilang Draftsman. Ano po kaya ang chances?

    hello lock_code2004, kasi i have computed the 55 its based dun sa 8 years of experience, so kung 5 years lang amkukuha which is 10points, id only be 50 pts + the 5 its under SS, so kulang talaga ako ng pts unless makakuha ako ng mataas sa ielts which is nearly impossible. mababa na kasi nakuha kong points sa age kasi nasa 40y/o na ko. kaya nag we need to do this fast bago kami abut an ng 44.

    ano ba yung difference ng state sponsorship with Regional Temporary Visa 489? will it be easier than SS? sa application ko kasi isasama ko family ko.

    Pareho lang po ang application process ng Visa 190 (SS) at Visa 489 (Regional Temp)..
    so walang kaso po kung isasama nyo ang family nyo..

    ang difference lang po is sa conditions/restrictions ng visa:
    Visa 190 (SS) - this is a PR visa, restriction is to stay/work in the state for 2 years.. then pwede na kayo lumipat anywhere in Australia..

    Visa 489 - it is Regional (not allowed to live/work in the city or some designated area), and it is Temporary valid for 4 years (this is not a PR visa, so after living for 2 years in the regional area and working for atleast 1 year in the regional area, you will be able to apply for a PR visa).

    @jvframos - tama po.. so here are my suggestions:

    1. complete your documents for vetassess immediately... include all your work experience..
    2. based sa result ng IELTS nyo at ng assessment: education (degree/diploma), and work exp (5 or 8 yrs), you will decide which visa type to apply for, depende sa total points nyo..

    goodluck!

    IELTS is not a requirement for Vetassess assessment.. unlike other assessing authority (CPAA or Engineers Australia)..

    kaya nga po para sa mga occupation under Vetassess.. they submit all the required docs for assessment.. and then while waiting for the result you review/take IELTS.. para just in time sa result pwede na submit ng EOI/SS agad..

    please visit the Vetassess website.. nandun po ang mga guidelines/checklist nila..
    goodluck!!

    Hello po sa mga na-visa grant na under Arch Draftsperson, gusto ko lang po magtanong tungkol sa EOI points claim. Kahapon po kase nag-email uli un DIAC sa akin tungkol sa EOI ko, i-review ko daw yung Educ Qualification, Skilled Employment, & Australian Study Requirement. Na-review ko na po ito last November, di ko nga po alam kung bakit nag-email sila uli. Sabay kanina, nakakuha na ko ng Invitation to apply for Visa 190, so naka-lock na yung EOI ko. Natatakot ako maglodge ng visa application kase baka may mali ako sa EOI ko.... Eto po un nilagay ko:

    1. Educ Qualification - Bachelor's degree Architecture sa Pinas & Master's Degree sa Sg, both may VETASSESS points advisory letter = 15 pts (bachelor's degree comparable to AU degree)

    2. Employment - 3 employment records in Sg from 2006 to present, may VETASSESS points
    advisory letter din = 10 pts (overseas employment 5+ yrs)

    3. Australian Study Requirement = 0 pt


    May mali po ba akong ginawa? :'(
    Mukhang standard email nila ata yun. kse nabigyan din kme ng email na ganyan.

    Hello po, tanong ko lang, meron na ba naka-experience, or may nabalitaan na po ba kayo na nag-apply for assessment as Architectural Draftsman sa Vetassess na hindi pa nagte-take ng board exam? Graduate lang po ng Architecture at my 3 years work experience bilang Draftsman. Ano po kaya ang chances?
    I got positive assessment from Vetassess year 2009, never tried taking board exam in pinas for Arki..I think malaki ung chance mo na magkaroon ng positive assessment kc bachelor degree ka nmn and also you've got years of exp. as draftsman..gudluck!..
