(a) Ask your consultant for the CID receipt. CID is sure proof of EA having received your docs. and payment. This will have the CID number to quote for correspondence with EA.
(b) Quote the CID and sent a mail to EA and ask for status. EA will promptly respond with status; but will also ask you to approach through the consultant.
(c) Lastly, if you do not trust your consultant, write to EA stating so and then you can deal directly. Forums such as this are there to help.

EA is now on 25 Apr. So, if your CID is dated 23 Apr the assessment should be completed by now.

Good Luck and Cheers!

I am hoping to have my CDR completed by Monday. The current turnaround time indicated on the EA website is 15 weeks. What are the chances I will have a response in time to make an application by 01 Jan 13 for the 885 visa before it closes?

EA processing was just 6-8 weeks for Feb- Mar applicants and then increased to 15 wks for Apr-May. I guess it is again getting faster. So if you apply right now/early Sep the assessment would be there well in time for you.

Good Luck!

Well it says 15 weeks on their website, and when I called they said they were inundated and frantically trying to get through them as quickly as possible! Just wondering if the 15 weeks is definite or of it could be a bit earlier.

Hello everybody,

I've recently finished my CDR, which is read through at the moment by one of my native english speaking friends.

Now I've seen some example CDRs which are slightliy different in the layout.

In my report I refer to the competency elements at the footer of the respective page with a footnote which is nummerically marked, whereas the example CDR which I've seen refers to the element on the right edge of the page and the reffering section is framed.

Does anyone think this might be a problem? Actually my report has 70 pages and I don't want to go all over again and rework the whole thing.

Cheers

Al

Does it say in the instructions from the assessing body that it has to be laid out in that way? If not, then I can't see that it matters.

Hello Pollyana,

Thank you very much for your reasuring reply.

I have to admit, that I don't know the document by heart. But I can't remember that there had been any formating or layout restrictions except of the summary statement, which is provided as template.

In this case I think I will submit the document in format as it is right now.

Cheers

Al

The competency requirements for EA assessment via the CDR route has changed slightly wef 01 Jul ( I had submitted pre 1st July). However, the basic requirements as per the MSA Booklet are :-

a) Each CER to have four parts -Introduction (50 Words) Background(200-500 words) Personal Engg Activity (500-1000 words) and summary (50-100 words) In total between 800 to 1650 words). So I think 70 pages would be quite lengthy.

b) Competency Element claimed is to be as per page 18 of the MSA Booklet given here http://www.engineersaustralia.org.au...nt_booklet.pdf

Hope this helps

Good Luck!

Have anyone had a CDR approved recently?

It seems like EA has been hitting a wall and the movement at the moment are very slow (more than the current 15 weeks that they state on their website and auto-email).
