Pathways For Migration Skill Assessment
Engineers Australia offers two types of Migration Skill Assessment Booklets:
- Accredited Qualification
- Non-Accredited Qualification
Engineers Australia recognizes or authorizes the candidate’s degree, so you may apply under the Accredited Qualification Category. However, if the candidate does not have a degree i.e. is not authorized by Engineers Australia, you must write a high-quality CDR Report and send it to Engineers Australia.
Five Migration Skill Assessment Pathways accredited by EA are listed below:
- Accredited Australian qualifications
- Washington Accord qualifications
- Sydney Accord qualifications
- Dublin Accord qualifications
- Competency Demonstration Report (CDR)
You need to prepare a high-quality CDR report when a candidate does not have a degree that has been authorized by Engineers Australia. Here are a few things you should consider while preparing the CDR, which are also mentioned in the MSA booklet.
Components Of CDR Report
- Personal Information
- Application Information
- Educational Background
- Details About Previous skilled employment
Let’s further discuss in detail about components of the CDR Report
1. Personal Information
Candidate must include relevant details that can provide personal information, such as passport size photo, prime id, name change documents, CV/resume, and English Language Test results.
2. Application Information
Applicants must provide details of the occupation they want to be evaluated. The occupation must be included in ANZSCO Code occupations.
3. Education Background
Candidates must include their educational credentials, as well as transcripts and any other relevant academic documents.
4. Details About Previous Skill Employment
Candidates must provide evidence of previous skill employment based on engineering experience and apply for the Relevant Skilled Employment Services.
5. CDR Report
Candidate must prepare a CPD statement, Career Episode, and Summary Statement of high quality and originality. Let’s discuss this more in-depth.
Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
It’s the evidence that shows how the candidate stays up-to-date in their field of engineering after completing undergraduate studies. You need to provide a table with information such as title, date, duration, place, and organizer.
It is necessary to include a certificate from each course in your CPD listing, but not more than one A4 page.
In a Career Episode, the candidate expresses how they are using their skills and knowledge on the job. Candidates should prepare three career episodes, and each career episode should describe how you applied your engineering knowledge and skills to the nominated occupation.
Three career episodes are summarized in the summary statement. In Engineer Australia’s MSA booklet, candidates can find sample summary statements.
