purpose of the CDR is to demonstrate


  • How you have applied your engineering knowledge and skills;
  • That such application meets the competency standards of the relevant occupational category in Australia.


The major assessable features of the CDR are your narratives written in English of three career episodes and a Summary Statement of the competency elements you have claimed.


Engineers Migration to Australia

An effective CDR delineates all the competencies exactly and orderly so it becomes an eminent document for the engineer to apply for migration to Australia.
The complete CDR report for Australian skilled migration should be written in English which is accepted in Australia. A CDR is the final assessment document that will be reviewed by Engineers Australia. Upon approval from Engineers Australia, you can get a permanent residency in Australia.

Risks in CDR Preparation

CDR can build or break your efforts to pursue higher position, economic well-being, and secured life in Australia.

Although many engineers possess excellent skills and experience and wonderful academic qualifications, they fail to urge their visas simply since their Competence Demonstration Report (CDR) are not well-written and get rejected by Engineers Australia.
CDR Australia helps engineers from all disciplines to organize Career Episodes, outline CPD Statement and Summary Statement that makes a perfect Competence Demonstration Report (CDR) in the first attempt.

English Language Requirements

All applicants applying to have their skills assessed by Engineers Australia are required to provide evidence of their English language competency through either of the following tests: IELTS Applicants who provide an IELTS test result must have a minimum score of 6.0 in each of the four modules of speaking, listening, reading and writing. Engineers Australia accepts both the General and Academic versions of the test. TOEFL iBT® From the 1st January 2016, Engineers Australia will be accepting the TOEFL iBT® as an alternative English language test to address the English language competency element of the Skills Assessment.
