Hi,
I have applied for my EA assessment in Mechanical Engg(CDR Route) and the application processing started on the 12th April, 2012. I have already got my CID number(I am staying in Australia on a 457 so it was received by normal post).
Anyone who has processed a skill assessment via EA CDR in recent times, can you post your timeline here. I am apprehensive(almost sure) that I will not make the timeline for July,2012.:mad::confused2:

I submitted my CDR (Engineering Technologist) on Apr 12th too, according to EA website, current processing time for CDR is 12 weeks, and you are asking not to contact them within this period, I suppose I won't be able to meet the July 12 deadline.

I got mine in almost 5 weeks on 7th dec...taking into account at least 6-7 days for mail delivery...i think it was processed in 4 weeks at EA's end.

Hi Chin2,

Well the current timeline for EA is being shown as 10 weeks from the date of receipt. If you email them with the subjet line as STATUS(email id is [email protected], they will tell u the date for which they are dealing with now.
About the CID, the CID will tell u exactly the day on which your Application was received. I got mine in 2 days, though I am in Australia so its faster. U should get the CID number within 7-10 days depending on ur country of location.
In case you think you have surpassed that time, I guess u can call your agent and he can ask EA about the same. Though without the CID, I dunno how u can quote your case.Your agent must be knowing this information.
Hope that u make it before the July deadline buddy.

Hi,
I didn't understand what you meant by applying for a Visa. I cannot apply before I have the EA result with me.I applied to EA on 12th April so going by their 10 weeks timeline I should have the result by 20th June. Am also a bit optimistic. If things change, can't help it. Whats the date coming to provided ur application was processed on the 19th April(add 10 weeks).
Also I guess for you, make sure u receive the result in post coz it seems that u didn't receive ur CID. U can also arrange for a courier to deliver it to u if u are not too confident abt the delivery in India
Thanks buddy

hi,
ya thats what they are saying now. This means that they are taking up around 8 weeks to come up to the CDR and then it will take around 10 days for it to be finalized and delivered.So they are right now sticking to their 10 weeks time line.

Hello everybody, My agent told me that the CDR application(Electrical Engineer ANZSCO 233311) was submitted on 10 Apr. But the Credit Card has not yet been charged. What should I do? The agent insists that he has lodged the application.

Cheers!

You can asked for courier tracking number of your application courier which was send by your agent to EA to ensure that application has been received by EA and if it's confirmed you or your agent can contact EA directly about status

Are you sure your credit card has not been charged yet. Its 30-04 today and u are saying u lodged it on 10-04. It should definitely be charged within 3-4 days of reaching them.

There is one guy CDR(Mechanical Engineer) from India who has reported his assessment time line is as follows,
Quote (CDR reached Engineers Australia on 9th March, Payment debited - 13th March, 16th March Points awarded - Mechanical Engineer - ANZSCO -233512) Unquote.

But he had forgotten to tick for additional assessment. So he was assessed only for the Degree. Notwithstanding,it was quite fast.

So it is possible. Good Luck!

Best of luck @Destinationaustralia.
I have heard that EA responds to phone queries as well so you can try that as well. Since you have not even received your CID in 20 days, I think its a point of concern.
Are you sure your agent has submitted it?

Well here is the full text

Re: Engineers Australia Assessment (merged threads)
hello All

Today(30/03/2012), I got my sucessfull confirmation on CDR assessment, My occupation and bachelors degree have been assessed and classified in ANZSCO 233512 - mechanical Engineer (level- 1).

Well, Thanks for all you support.

my major concern is, I have not done Relevant Skilled Employment, but the letter i received, clearly defines my competencies in conjunction with my qualification.

Please advice, do i have to do relevant skilled employment or esle shall i submit my GSM - Skilled - Independent (Migrant) visa (subclass 175).

Regards,

XXXX

(CDR reached Engineers Australia on 9th March, Payment debited - 13th March, 16th March Points awarded - Mechanical Engineer - ANZSCO -233512)"
