NOC code for QA Automation Engineer 2173 vs 2283


I am confused what my NOC code would be? My role is QA Automation engineer. 2283 makes sense because of my following responsibilities:

  • Writing scripts for tests
  • Executing test plans and reporting issues to devs

however 2173 also makes sense because of:

  • I develop framework keywords for web testing which other feature testers use for their automation testing
  • My work is 80% automation
    Which would be the right NOC code for me?
    Thanks in advance guys.


Your NOC should match whatever you think would be written on the reference letter(s) for the amount of experience you’re counting towards your points. If a majority of one NOC matches your job description that you’re boss is willing to sign, use that. You can only use one NOC.
