Regarding your point of assessment becoming harder, I think that current CDR based system is hard enough and I wonder what else they can demand from us.

Lets wait for new booklet to know the details.
Can I ask you some Questions?..1- what kind of engineer are you? 2-Have ever heard about rejection from EA?

Electronics Engineer. I cannot comment about the rejection from EA as I recently came to know about this CDR thing from Engineers Australia. What I feel from their approach that they are supposed to assess us against our qualifications and skills and give their recommendation for equivalency according to Australian standards. If you dont have enough experience or irrelevant qualification (which does not pertain to their domain) then they will simply notify you for a different path.

The currently available version is of January 2011 which will be amended and July 2011 version will be released soon to reflect the changes of new points test of DIAC.

Yes, the new MSA booklet (July 2011 Edition) is now available at EA website. I see no major change in CDR based method, the only addition is the assessment of skilled employment for DIAC at an extra cost of AUD 150.

points test is DIAC's instrument has nothing to do with the EA assessment. If you have enough to pass the assessment, you can go for it now. When you have enough to claim additional points with DIAC you will apply for the visa. DIAC does their own calculations of the work experience.

Default Re: CDR for Engineers Australia

then why is this mentioned on page 26 in section D..

"2. Applicability of additional services

It should be noted that not all clients will require these
additional assessing services. Such services are
anticipated to be ONLY of interest to the following clients:

• those who hold a higher-level qualification than may be
strictly necessary to provide the nominated outcome;


and / or

• those who have at least 1 year Australian work
experience, and / or at least 3 years Overseas work
experience in their nominated occupation or a closelyrelated
occupation.


Either or both of these services may be applied for if the
client wishes to claim the DIAC points."

This is an additional service, offered be EA, that may or may not be needed. It is also separate from the skills assessment itself. It says at the beginning of the section that DIAC *may* request an opinion, but they don't have to. Yes, it would be less risky for you to apply for assessment and for this optional opinion at the same time, after you have completed your 3 years, this way you could pretty much bank on the extra points in the visa application, but you don't have to have it upfront, and DIAC may not even request it. These rules are quite new and there is not enough info available publicly to opine on, so keep us updated on how you go about it.

Exclamation other posts vary...

there have been other posts with official links stating the same 5 yrs to be 12 months ie. you must apply to DIAC within 1 yr of your outcome letter from EA, but the EA website says 5 yrs according to their general understanding (not necessarily understanding with DIAC)

Default CDR for EA assessment review

I am almost done with my CDR but not feeling confident regarding the occupation ill be applying for. My intended occupation is mechanical engineering but i have been working in upstream oil and gas sector. so my career episodes include alot of drilling terminologies..

Can anyone over here give each episode a review. it would ideally be a person assessed positively by EA, has done mechanical engineering and working in upstream oil sector...any mechanical engineer who has been assessed positively by EA is also welcomed.


PM me ur id, ill send u the episodes in couple of days..
