Today the DIBP announced changes to the Skilled Occupation List (SOL) and the Consolidated
Skilled Occupation List (CSOL). The changes will take effect from the 1st July 2014.

The changes to the SOL by adding Chef's, Bricklayers and Tiler's were as expected as we covered this news on Saturday but the two new occupations added to the CSOL are a surprise.

There have been some minor alterations to the skill assessment authorities for four occupations and a couple of title definition rewordings but otherwise the lists are basically untouched.

Now at least students can relax with some certainty that their occupations will remain on the SOL.

The Hydrogeologist's and Exercise Physiologist's out there can jump for joy at being included on the CSOL.
