For EB-3 immigration, a position is defined which requires only 18 months of training (and no education and no work experience) or only 18months of experience (and no training and no education). The closest category is https://www.onetonline.org/link/summary/21-2021.00 which requires usualy more experience or education. My questions:
1. Given that the employer's defined position requires less training, education, experience less than O*Net, is that OK?
2. Having a position with alternative requirement (18montsh of training or 18 months of experience) is OK?
Less education, experience or training, and knowledge is acceptable for labor certification and may be Certified if the test of the labor market fails to find a US worker with the required less education, training, and knowledge.
Is my answer "BEST ANSWER" and/or "HELPFUL"? If so, please acknowledge and mark it so. Mr. Smith has 25 years of successful U.S. immigration law experience with cases just like yours.

1. Not for an EB-3 professional, but it can work for an EB-3 (other worker).
Make sure that a lawyer does these papers, this will be complicated.

Much more information is needed in order to answer this question properly. It may be a good idea to discuss this with the attorney filing the application for your employer and ask them your questions which raise valid concerns. This way you can see if there is a good reason for their choices particularly as a new attorney would want to understand why they have selected these options before giving advice. Good Luck.
