I think i should post it here so that some1 else may get helped too. Here you go:
-----------------------------------------------------------

I obtained my degree of Bachelors of Science in Electrical Engineering, with communications as a major from XYZ University of Engineering and Technology, in October 2004. I have been registered as a professional engineer with Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC).

After graduation, I joined XYZ Pvt. Ltd as an Engineer in CDMA department. XYZ had been awarded the 800K line WLL Project by client xxx. My main responsibilities were initially rolling out the BSS network in North region which included deployment of BTS and NEC transmission links. After the completion of the rollout phase I was assigned to perform operations and maintenance in North region which involved corrective maintenance and preventive maintenance. I also delivered training to fresh engineers and technical staff of xxx on the xxx’s equipment. (Jul 05 – Jul 07)

While serving in xxx, I got a better opportunity and joined xxx as a Transmission Engineer. I was responsible for the installation, commissioning, integration and supervision of BTS sites along with NEC transmission links. I successfully completed all the assigned projects within the awarded timelines. (Jul 07 – Aug 09)

Currently I am working as a Team Leader xxx Operations with xxx. I have carried out end to project management of Rollout & Expansion. All newly integrated sites in the network are cleared from defects and successfully handed over for operations and maintenance. I am also looking after the corrective and preventive maintenance of BSS network.

I have recently completed my Masters in Engineering Management from University of xxx. (CGPA 3.3,). During my M.Sc degree I presented a paper on “Impact of Poor Quality in Cellular Networks: a case study of cellular operators ”. The paper was selected for the presentation in 12th International QMOD and Toulon-Verona Conference on Quality and Service Sciences (ICQSS).

In addition to my engineering degree following short courses, trainings and workshops added a lot to my professional development.

1. CDMA (BSS) Technology training
2. Power Supply Training
3. NEC Pasolink NEO, PNMTj and C-Node
4. WIMAX Training
5. Anti-terrorism Course
6. Tower Safety Training
7. Corrective and Preventive Action (CAPA): Methodology and Tools Overview
8. Electrostatic Discharge & Electrostatic Compatibility
9. Advance Implementation of BGP

----------------------------------------------------

I didn't find it very impressive but it has been positively approved by EA recently. I hope it will give you some idea of what you need to mention in your CPD.

Good Luck !

Samples would not be of use - just write in your own words and it should be OK.

I don't think that a sample would suffice much. Anyways, you can send me a pm with your email id and I will try to send you the samples. One thing that I've observed is that the Engineers Australia isn't looking for something "impressive". They just want to make sure that you're an engineer and have done practical work as well as keeping yourself updated about the innovations in the industry. Just my two cents though.
