Hi everyone,

I've read through tons of posts and have done lots of research but still am confused so I'm posting my query here hoping to find a solution.

PROFILE DETAILS
Bachelors (Undergrad): Electronics & Communication from an Indian college, graduating in 2012.
Work Experience: 3 years in Information Technology (Data Analytics to be specific)
Masters: Information Technology and Management (Concentration in Analytics)

I want to apply for a PR in Australia and here are my points currently.

Age 25: 30 points
TOEFL 117: 10 points (planning to give PTE to possibly get 20 points here)
Overseas Experience: 3 years in ICT: 0 points
Australian Work Experience: Less than 1 year: 0 points
2 years Australian Full time Study: 5 points
Study in Adelaide(Low pop area): 5 points
Specialist Educational Qualification in ICT: 5 points (Not sure if I’ll get these points so not considering them)

So, I have a total 50 points. I need at least 65 to have a respectable case in subclass 190 or get 20 in English test and try for subclass 189.
I wouldn’t have got any education points with ACS so I've decided to go through with Engineers Australia. I have completed my 3 CDRs and am in the process of writing my CPD and Summary statement. I'm confused about the CPD and want to request help.

MY QUESTION
I saw a lot of sample CPDs and they are all very impressive. Lots of trainings, IEEE conferences and other achievements. For me, it’s the tough part.
As mentioned above, I completed my engineering in 2012 and moved to IT after graduating. So I haven’t really done a lot of continuous learning in Electronics. Now I was able to dig my reports and write 3 good CDRs but I’m totally stonewalled by lack of achievements while writing the CPD.
Requesting guidance on how to proceed.
Thank You

CPD is easiest part mate.
just mention books journals or any other training material
tech related magazines, workshops seminars that you attended.
anything.
or even self taught skills and the way you taught them to yourself
