Hey Rajug,
I submitted the CDR in Feb and have not heard from them so far.
Pls study the EA handbook in detail before resubmitting the CDR.
If you need any help, I will try to assist.

Hi Dabojyoti,

Thanks a lot for extending a hand for help.

I will read through EA handbook meanwhile let me reiterate few things to clarify..

I had written the CDRs in mid sep and got their reply in mid jan, as i mentioned they said its not unto professional level so my worry is how do i make them look professional and what else should i add in them.
also what should i write in CPD .

they have also asked for the visiting cards or any other proof of my references to justify that they really worked in the said companies. visiting cards are tough to arrange now however my references have agreed to share copy of their experience letters(will that be good enough).
look forward for a genuine whelp on this please.
many thanks
Raj

Hi Raj,
You have shared 2 topics. 1) CDR 2) IELTS score improvement.
lets discuss one at a time.
The way I have prepared my CDR is to decide 3 best episodes which demonstrates my technical and managerial abilities (based on the skill which I am applying for).
The i made a rough summary of the things I would like to include:

*objective
*background
*summary
*technical diagrams
*source/glossary

Pls try to show how we have used the technical knowledge learned in engineering to business processes.
For confidentiality reason, I am unable to share my CDR's but am happy to assist in any way possible.

many thanks
Raj

You may be an engineer by title and possess an engineering degree; but your work experience may not match your qualifications. My husband is an Electronics & Instrumentation Engineer and works as an Instrumentation engineer. However, our skills consultant said our CDRS didn't match that of an engineer but rather an Engineering Technologist. According to EA, an engineer is a person who designs and does prototyping, is into R&D etc. Refer to the EA booklet while you prepare the CDR. It will help you identify what elements and competencies you need to address under each header. We submitted our CDRS on 22 Aug 2014 and received a positive assessment on 18 Dec 2014. So a total of 16 weeks. Putting together a good CDR is hard work but worth it.

GNT : To be honest, we provided a letter from his company stating his titles and responsibilities. His director signed off on it. We don't even know if EA contacted his firm to verify this. He didnt hear of it from his management. So there is no way to verify if EA contacted them.

Hi Guys,

Can anyone guide me what is CID, Actually I submitted online application form to EA for assessment of my educations, But I read in some threads that they also assess the experience. Can you guys please advise they assess experience themselves or I need to choose some option while submitting the CDR online.

What is the benefit of assessment of Experience form EA.

Thanks

Dear Asim79,
When you are applying you will need to select the option of also assessing your experience, by default it's only an assessment of your degree. For claiming points on your EOI it is advisable to have an assessment from the relevant authority which is engineers Australia in your case I'm guessing. Hope that helps.

Regards,
