* Important: If you nominate one of the above specialist computing occupations, you will only be awarded MODL points if your skills assessment from the relevant the Australian Computer Society (ACS) states you have met the criteria to be recognised in one of the above specialisations.

The ACS has advised that assessments provided to successful applicants will state the ASCO Code for Computer Professional nec with the specialisation in brackets -- for example, 2231-79 (SAP). In addition, the assessment will have the following statement: "Based on the provided certified documentation, it is my opinion that the applicant has 12 months experience in (name of specialisation, for example, SAP)".

If you have a skills assessment which only states the ASCO Code for "Computer Professional nec 2231-79", you are not eligible to be awarded MODL points. A new assessment will be required if you wish to claim points for having an occupation on the MODL.

How often does the MODL change?
The MODL is reviewed twice a year to take into consideration existing and emerging skills shortages. This does not mean the list is changed twice a year. Changes only occur if there has been a significant change in labour market trends.

As the MODL may change from time to time, you are advised to check the current MODL at the time you are lodging your visa application. You should also be aware that your occupation must be on the MODL at the time you lodge your application or when your application is assessed in order to be awarded 'occupation in demand/ job offer' points on the General Skilled Migration points test.

How are occupation points awarded on the points test?
If your nominated occupation is on MODL at the time your application is assessed, you will be eligible for 'occupation in demand' points on the points test.
You will receive extra points if, in addition to your nominated occupation being on the MODL at the time your visa application is assessed, you have a job offer from a suitable Australian employer.

What is a 'suitable Australian employer'?
A 'suitable Australian employer' is an employer that has employed at least 10 people on a full-time basis for the previous two financial years.

If you intend to claim points for 'occupation in demand/job offer' you are required to submit documentary evidence that your proposed employer meets these requirements. This evidence should include:

a letter of offer from your prospective employer on official letterhead of the company which states the full address of the company and any telephone, fax numbers, e-mail and website addresses
the name and position of the person authorised to sign the employment reference typed or stamped below that person's signature – a reference with an illegible signature will not be accepted
details of the position you are being offered, the main five duties to be undertaken, and the salary level
details of the organisation making the job offer, including the number of people it has employed on a full-time basis for the previous two years
The department will make any necessary checks to ensure that the information provided is correct.
Priority processing
The Migration Act 1958 contains powers by which the Minister for Immigration and Multicultural and Indigenous Affairs can consider and finalise migration visa applications in an order of priority he/she considers appropriate.

Under this power, the Minister has identified a number of General Skilled Migration visas that are both a priority for employers generally across Australia and, more specifically, for regional and low population growth metropolitan areas. The Minister has issued a directive to give priority processing to these applications. As part of these arrangements, if your nominated occupation is on the MODL, your General Skilled Migration visa application will receive priority processing.

This runs you through various steps such as choosing your country and language and what specific elements you want to
install. Additionally, the wireless connectivity has
good speed. "Many eyes will likely be on them to determine if they'll pull the rabbit out with the hat," Enderle

Typically the t100577 Nest Learning Thermostat can be described as modern newer sorts of
thermostat. Sometimes, the bargains can be found at different stores, so shop around in your neighborhood stores for the
best deal. To save energy, the aim was for residents to program their schedules for regulating home
temperatures, which proved to be complex and not popular in
use.

The question is - which platform provides the best viewing experience.
The report which questioned 2046 US participants and was run by consulting firm Deloitte revealed that
65% want to connect the internet to their home TV to twatch streams, this figure was 58%
in the same survey in 2009. It's quite small so won't take up
any room at all and could easily be tossed behind your TV
or even on the opposite side of the room if you wish.
