Introducing Engineers Australia
Engineers Australia (EA) is Australia’s largest engineering body, representing around 100,000 engineers and conducting migration skills assessments for several professions.
EA assess over 30 occupations for skills assessments – popular occupations include:

Migration Skills Assessment for Engineers
Assessments are split into two primary pathways:
- Holding a recognised qualification (generally a Bachelor of Engineering Degree)
- Completing a Competency Demonstration Report (CDR)
It is the applicant’s responsibility to identify the correct pathway for their qualifications; Engineers Australia does not provide any preassessment services. If you require assistance you can arrange a consultation with a licensed migration agent, who will identify your assessment pathway and visa options.
Completing a Competency Demonstration Report
If your qualification is not recognised under one of the accredited accords, you may still be eligible if you can provide a Competency Demonstration Report (CDR).
The CDR assessment is based primarily upon the undergraduate qualification and demonstrated graduate competencies. This consists of evidencing your skilled employment and preparing ‘career episodes’, which are an account of your engineering education and/or work experience. A vast amount of time and effort required to produce a CDR, and all the work must be original and produced by the applicant.
It is unacceptable to have another party complete a CDR on your behalf. All work submitted must be your own, and Engineers Australia have various methods to detect breaches such as plagiarism detection software and investigations. Using a company to produce your CDR jeopardises your skills assessment and chances of migrating to Australia.
We recently discovered a company promoting CDR services “100% plagiarism free” on social media, so we sent the details to Engineers Australia. Their assessment team provided the below response:
“Engineers Australia has always been very serious and trying our best to fight against such unethical behaviours. Besides serious warning on the consequences of using such service, we have been applying plagiarism detection software as well as our own research, investigation and analysis processes to catch such cases.”
