Default Australia: Washington accord + rsea

Hi guys,

I am applying for skill assessment from Engineers Australia. I graduated from the University of Hong Kong with a full-time Civil Engineering Degree. So I can apply under Washington Accord to get my skill assessed. My questions:

1. Is it possible to still get work assessed under the RSEA? Is it a good idea to apply for this as well? It seems that under Washington Accord, the EA Assessment will be straightforward (just need to submit degree cert and few other identification documents).
RSEA might take more preparation time - to get the reference letters and stuff. So is it worth it or just do it next stage?

2. I am chartered as a Civil Engineer under ICE and HKIE. However, my work is more towards structural engineering (Same group of occupation). Is it better if I adjust my cv to be more towards the Civil Engineering itself? It'll be easier because I am chartered as a civil engineer under two professional bodies.

Thanks so much. Would really appreciate any advice.

1. I think you cannot get the document they require for RSEA if you are working in HK. I had difficulty to get the tax return and provident fund statement with company name for all years of employment. I have given up the RSEA and still got the grant.

2. I would suggest so.
