If you are interested about migrating to Australia as an Engineer, you will find this article helpful. Engineers have one of the highest starting salaries in Australia, and the chronic shortage of Engineers in Australia led Australian Government to bring thousands of skilled Engineers from overseas each year. The demand for Engineer is so high that the new points system allows applicants with higher Australian Qualification in Engineering to claim extra 10 points.
Skill Assessment of Engineers:
Engineers Australia is the skill assessing authority for engineering occupations for immigration purpose. Depending on the type of qualification, Engineering skills are assessed differently. If a qualification is an accredited Australian qualification or qualification is recognised under the Washington Accord, Dublin Accord, or Sydney Accord the skill assessment process is straightforward. However, if a qualification is non-accredited, then skills are assessed through Competency Demonstration Report (CDR) pathway.
Competency Demonstration Report (CDR):
CDR consists of three segments: (a) CPD (b) 3 Career Episode Reports (CER), and (c) Summary Statement in line with Career Episode Reports. If you do have employment experience, it would be important to highlight them in CER as the Career Episode Report can be enriched in conjunction with employment experience. Writing career episode must be applicant’s own work and Engineers Australia use software to detect plagiarism. Our extensive professional experience in immigration law assist applicants to understand the requirement of skill assessment in its entirety as well as make them aware of their ethical responsibility and enable them to write their own career episode.
All applicants must satisfy the English language requirement of the skill assessment.
Professional Support for Engineers:
Engineers are in high demand across all over Australia. K Group Legal provides professional support in the preparation for the skill assessment, lodging EOI, liaising with various State and Territory bodies for application for State Nomination, and assisting with lodging a decision ready visa application. Since Engineers from all over the world are willing to migrate to Australia, some of the engineering occupations are classified as pro rata occupations meaning visa invitations for some temporary regional visa can only be issued after inviting applicants for skill independent permanent residency visa.
