I registered with the NBSA first and then did the modified skill assessment withe the ANMC as it works out cheaper and easier. You can do it either way, I just felt that the modified skill assessment was more straigh forward than the full one.
We had a great christmas. We still need to finish bits on the house then put it on the market, also need to sell the car, it is only 2 years old a zafira so having trouble selling it. We want to go as soon as possible when we get the visa.
Good luck with everything and if you want any more help just pm me and I'll be more than happy to help.
