Default Engineers Australia Job Title

Hi, Good day to all. I would like to know if the job title stated on the experience certificate matters. I have based two of my narrative reports on my current employment, which has a job title of Instrument Technician. I wish to be assessed as a Professional Engineer being my degree as Electronics Engineer.

tldr: Bottom line is would my MSA to be a PE be drastically affected due to my job title?

If the degree awarded to you is Electronics Engineer and as long as your career episodes are meeting the competency criteria of a professional engineer, then I see no point you should't be awarded as a professional engineer.

Career episodes based on employment experience needs to be relative to your field and in your case I think job title would not impact your EA outcome.

Thanks for the great insight, I was having second thoughts already of pushing through my agent recommended to go as Engineering Technologist due to that issue.

I would suggest you to stick with your assessment as an Electronics Engineer, in case your profile is not meeting the requirements, the assessor might give you an option to assess you as Engineering Professionals NEC or Engineering Technologist. I had the same issue, I was given an option to select from Engineering Professionals NEC or Engineering Technologist.

Thank you, would try to do so. Any tips to get a positive skill assessment as a PE?

The only tip which is useful, is to follow the MSA booklet guidelines. Try to cover as much competency elements of Professional Engineer in your career episodes. While preparing Career Episodes, try to focus on tasks given to you and how you accomplished them, present any difficulties you faced and how you rectified them, how you worked in collaboration with other departments within organization and with in your department with your subordinates, and the most important the outcome of the project and your learning from the project activity. Always mention your personal activities in Career Episodes instead of collective efforts of the project team.
If you have further queries, please feel free to ask.

Thank you the information/tips you have provided is more than adequate. I just need to revise it one last time. Thank you, once again.

Oh one more thing, since two of my career episodes are based on my current job. Do I need to submit the requirements of relevant skilled employment assessment (RSEA)?

If you are going for only Qualification assessment and your career episodes are based on your current /previous job, then you need to provide Reference Letter as per section C - 2.4.1 of MSA booklet. If you are going for option of Qualification assessment along with relevant work experience, then you need to provide all the mandatory (primary and secondary) documents (section D, page 28 - MSA booklet) for positive outcome.
I hope this might be helpful.

What would be the benefit of opting for RSEA, if points would only be awarded by DIBP/DHA? Thank you for your thorough explanation.
