Engineers Australia Skill Assessment Tracks

There are five different application tracks for migration skills assessment. These various tracks are mentioned below:

Accredited qualifications
1. Australian Qualifications
2. Washington Accord Qualifications
3. Sydney Accord Qualifications
4. Dublin Accord Qualifications

Non-Accredited qualifications/ Engineering Manager
5. Competency Demonstration Report (CDR)

Australian Qualifications
Graduates of accredited Australian engineering programs are eligible for migration skills assessment via the Australian Engineering Qualifications application pathway.

The Washington Accord
The minimum academic requirements for an assessment via the Washington Accord are qualifications which are broadly comparable to an Australian 4 year bachelor degree in engineering. The Washington Accord applies only to engineering degrees accredited by the representative body of the signatory country.

The Sydney accord
The minimum academic requirements for an assessment via the Sydney Accord are qualifications which are broadly comparable to an Australian 3 year Bachelor of Technology degree in engineering.

The Dublin Accord
The minimum academic requirements for an assessment via the Dublin Accord are qualifications which are broadly comparable to an Australian 2 year Advanced Diploma or Associate Degree in engineering. The Dublin Accord applies only to engineering degrees
accredited by the representative body of the signatory
country.

Competency Demonstration Report (CDR)
The CDR assessment is based primarily upon the undergraduate qualification and demonstrated graduate competencies. Applicants need to provide documentary evidence of BOTH:
• The core technical engineering knowledge supporting
the nominated occupation AND;
• The demonstrated application of that knowledge in
the nominated occupation.

The CDR must be all your own work. All typed components of the CDR must be done using a word processor and you are strongly advised to keep a copy. Your CDR will be assessed against the graduate competency standards and the ANZSCO definition of the occupational category nominated by you.

Each career episode must clearly demonstrate the application of engineering knowledge and skills in the nominated occupation. That is, state what you did and describe how you did it, emphasising your own personal role in episode. Please do not include excessive technical details (photos, calculations, tables).
