Engineers Australia CDR stands for Competency Demonstration Report. It is a document required by Engineers Australia for migration purposes as part of the assessment process for Engineers from overseas who wish to work as Professional Engineers in Australia.

The CDR provides evidence of the engineer’s competence and skills, and is used to assess the engineer’s eligibility for membership in the institution and for assessment for migration purposes. The CDR must be written by the engineer and should demonstrate the engineer’s ability to meet the requirements for professional engineering practice in Australia. It must include three career episodes, a summary statement, and a continuing professional development record.

Guidelines for writing a CDR

We can provide guidelines for writing a good Engineers Australia CDR.

  1. Introduction: Start with a brief overview of yourself and your engineering background. Include your qualifications, skills, and experience.
  2. Career Episodes: Write three career episodes that highlight your engineering skills and experience. Each episode should be between 500-1000 words, and should include the following elements:

a. Background: Provide context for the project, including the company, the team, and the project objective.

b. Personal Engineering Activity: Detail your role in the project, including the tasks you performed, the problems you solved, and the results you achieved.

c. Continuing Professional Development: Discuss the skills and knowledge you gained from the project, and how they have helped you in your career.

  1. Summary Statement: Summarize your engineering skills and experience in a brief statement. Focus on your strengths and highlight the areas where you have excelled.
  2. Conclusion: Conclude your CDR by summarizing the key points you have made and explaining why you believe you are a good fit for Engineers Australia.
  3. Referencing: Reference all sources used in the CDR, including publications, reports, and websites.

It is important to keep the CDR concise and focused and to ensure that it is free from errors and typos. Additionally, make sure that the CDR is written in a clear and concise manner, and that it presents your skills and experience in the best possible light.
