National occupation classification, or NOC is a rudimentary part of Canada’s skilled worker immigration program. There will be a switch from NOC to the TEER category system in Canada immigration process.
The new TEER system, will be implemented 16th November 2022 onwards.
TEER system will help the candidates to understand the skill level requirement of Canadian immigration. Post these changes, the new Training, Education, Experience, Responsibilities (TEER) system will be
used by the Canadian authority to understand a candidate’s eligibility for work experience.
Difference between NOC & TEER:
The current NOC system has five skill levels to demonstrate different occupations:
- “O” level: All senior & managerial positions fall under this category.
- “A” level: Professional jobs along with relevant University education.
- “B” level: Skill labor category along with college education or apprentice training.
- “C” level: Semi-skill category with secondary school or any special training.
- “D” level: Semi or non-skill category with no specific formal education.
NOC will be replaced by TEER with six categories:
TEER 0: This level will cover all the managerial & senior levels that exist in the NOC O category.
TEER 1: This level covers jobs that will require have University Degree, almost similar to NOC A.
Moreover, TEER 1 will include profiles in TEER 2 as well whomsoever has several years of work experience in their field.
TEER 2: At this level, profiles must have post-secondary education, as well as candidates, must be established at the supervisory level.
Moreover, TEER 3 occupations along with several years of work experience can include in TEER 2 category.
TEER 3: This level will require post-secondary education or apprenticeship of fewer than two years, or if the candidate has a secondary level of schooling then must need to have more than six-month on-job training.
TEER 4 candidates with several years of experience will qualify for TEER 3 category as well.
TEER 4: Applicants must have a secondary school of education with a few months of job training.
TEER 5: This level has no demand for formal education.
Apart from TEER 0 & TEER 5, candidates from other TEER categories can move to the higher category level based on their several years of work experience even if they don’t have the desired education as per the level requirement. Henceforth, several years of work experience will be calculated to be equivalent to a formal degree or education.
