    Hi po guenb, need ko lang po sana ng confirmation kung anu ilalagay sa eoi ng start of employment kung ang assesment sa ACS is after August 2008 ang related. Ang dapat po bang ilagay is Sept 1, 2008? Tama po ba pagkakaintindi ko? Thanks po planning to lodge 190 later po. Tnx

      @[email protected] declare mu pa din lahat ng employment history, pag part ng deduction e tag mu lang as 'NO' sa related employment. Separate mu starting from Sep 1 2008 e tag mu naman sia as 'YES' para dun na mag start yung computation if available for points in skilled employment. Good luck!

    Hi Guenb,

    Under RPL route kaba?

    How about your work references? normally generic ang COE diba? so nagpasign ka sa boss mo ng job description mo?

    Nag statutory declaration or affidavit kaba?

    In my case, I have HR COE at the same time nagpapirma ako sa boss ko (in official letterhead) for the job description and hours worked and job title.

    Yung isang problem ko lang ay ang employer ko sa Dubai, hindi talaga sila nagbibigay ng job description kaya plain paper lang sya - nagpapirma na din ako sa mas supervisory role na kaofficemate ko. Eto bang case na ito since plain paper lang sya need ko kaya ipa- statutory declaration or affidavit?

    Salamat sa response.

      @dennispb hi, hindi ako RPL, fortunately eh under regular Skills Assessment ako. Let me know the details of your degree, like what course or school baka naman you don't need to go through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

      Everything you need to know nasa guidelines din ng ACS

      Yung hiningi mo from HR is okay as long as it contains the following info:

      • Start and Finish Dates of Employment – these should be specific dates in a DD/MM/YY format
      • Description of Duties Performed – Required to determine the relevance of the experience to the nominated occupation
      • Hours worked - Full time or Part time –must be a minimum of 20 hours per week
      • Country where Employment was undertaken
      • Company Letterhead and signed by the author
      • Certification as a valid copy

      You will need the affidavit for the job episode in Dubai. In this case your officemate (prefereably with a copy of his id/passport and business card) which should be higher rank can sign an affidavit also containing the info I've listed above. You can attach any evidence about that work like contract/payslip.

      hello, di po ako VETASSESS, on-going pa lang yung ACS assessment ko. Through back-reading usually matagal talaga yung VETASSESS, 8-12 weeks. Mas mabilis ata if through online application.
    • guenb
      @rina74 Just check here

      *The approximate time for assessment is 10-12 working weeks once we have received all documents required for the assessment.

      For Points Test Applications only (applicants for VETASSESS occupations):

      The processing time is 6-8 weeks.
      For Points Test Applications (applicants for non-VETASSESS occupations):

      The approximate time is 4-6 weeks.
