Why are Competency Demonstration Report (CDR) samples important?
In order to ensure a smooth migration to Australia as an engineer, Competency Demonstration Report (CDR) is a set of documents that need to be put together, which showcases your skills and competency in both Engineering and English Language. The report that you submit will undergo a careful assessment and can be either approved or suspended. If suspended, you will have to put on hold the migration process until the suspension period is over, which is usually around 11 months. This can be a huge waste of time and a costly affair. Therefore, it is best to go through some CDR report samples before you submit your own one to ensure a guaranteed acceptance. There may be many free CDR samples on the net, but make sure to carefully choose the ones that are in accordance with the Engineers Australia.
How should the samples be used?
CDR samples for Engineers Australia are put together in compliance with the Migration Skills Assessment requirements booklet for Engineers Australia. The booklet is being updated from time to time, thus the samples that you obtain must be in compliance with the latest version. Though the samples are ideal reports, they should not be copied word to word for your report, as each report undergoes a plagiarism assessment and if plagiarism is found, you would be penalized for it. To avoid such an occurrence, draw guidance and inspiration from a sample CDR report but do not copy paste it. Sometimes, if you have read a report recently, it may be fresh on your mind, and you may copy it unknowingly. Thus, first read the sample report, then close it, and start writing your own without going back to it repeatedly. You can even use a plagiarism check software to assess it on your own before submitting it. Some people would prefer to avoid this time consuming and hectic process, thus opt for experts or services that are specialized in this. Engineers based consultants are such specialized individuals who can help you to make an ideal CDR report. Whenever a service or expertise is chosen, make sure to check their qualifications and ensure their efficiency.
What would the sample contain?
A CDR sample Engineers Australia will have key requirements for the report as follows:
- Three Career Episodes.
- Summary Statement.
- Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
Make sure the documents and details mentioned above are ready for you to get started with the process. It has been found that one of the hardest components to satisfy in the CDR is the summary statement, which is mainly reflecting on the three practical engineering projects you have undertaken per career. It is essential to cross-reference to the three career episodes while writing this. If you do not have the required projects done, your summary statement would be ineffective thus leading for you to get suspended. A CDR report sample which is usually based on a good report that was accepted in the past should be carefully read and analyzed especially on the summary statement to learn how to write a good summary statement with regard to the three career episodes.
A CDR report sample can also differ according to your discipline of engineering. Depending on your discipline, whether it is mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, chemical engineering, aeronautical engineering, civil engineering or other, choose the appropriate sample for you to base your report on. A CDR sample can also help you to learn on the language that must be used in the report; as it is a professional document, one must be careful to make no errors in punctuation, grammar, and spellings and maintain a tone of professionality.
Why should you obtain samples from us?
Engineer Australia wishes to grant permission only to engineers who are competent in their field to practice in Australia following migration from another country. Using a standardized system like CDR, they measure this competency and also give a fair assessment to all people regardless of where they come from. A good CDR, formulated following guidance from samples can make the process easier than what it may seem like. We can make sure that according to your field of engineering and the latest updates in guidelines that you receive the correct samples, so that you are able to make a good CDR and avoid the hassle of being suspended.
