    most IT certs wont count for squat in the aussie visa system
    its pure academia type stuff

    that said experiance does count, and last time i checked about 5 years should do the trick

    Every country is different.

    As far as i'm aware I don't think its that hard to get into Australia if you have a trade that they want.

    Degrees normally give you so many points or allow you to be considered. I don't think certs count officially but there may be ways around this.

    You can ask at the embassy, or on ex pat and visa/immigration sites. I'd be interested to know what you find out too ! :D

    What are you actually skilled/trained at? This will help determine if you get in or not. If you have around 100K then it shouldn't be a problem. Generally though they are looking for a lot of blue collar to low white collar workers. Hairdressers too, so I've heard.

    Keep in mind that neither an IT training course nor an IT certification is the same as an IT degree.

    so a course with the skills train wouldnt allow me to work out there,

    another lie they have told me along with: -
    • Starting wage will be £45,000 for e-commerce
    • If you don't sign up now you have to wait one year to be able to pay monthly, meaning all the money has to be upfront
    • If you don't sign up now you have to wait till april 08 to start
    • They guarantee to get me job as soon as i have finished
    I should complain really

    You'd be best off getting a Working Visa. They're times of the year when they give them out to over 30s. Word is that, officially, they decline applications from over 30s.

    As for certs - well MS Certs mean jack shite to them but Cisco stuff will earn you points I believe!

    Might not do a lot of good, though I wish you luck... many training companies worldwide have promised the moon and failed to deliver, with little action being taken against them.

    BM is right you'll probably not get anywhere they will have something in the small print that will allow them to get away with stuff like that
