How CDRSample keeps the prices down

We would like to share how we in CDRSample keeps the prices for their services down comparing to the market.


First of all – we never advertise using AdWords or other paid advertisement anywhere online.

For you as services (or product) buyer it is important to understand that if you buy any services from a company that has massive online advertisement, you, as a buyer pay for this advertisement campaign from your pocket. Companies who use advertisement to promote their sales through paid campaigns need to cover their costs and they have to increase price for their services or product.


We, in CDRsample never use paid advertising, you will never see us on google AdWords or similar and this helps us keeping the price for our services relatively low.


Second – we don’t have a physical office. Same principal here: Companies who have physical offices would need to pay for these offices and the only way they can do this is by covering for these expenses by increasing the cost for their services / product.

CDRsample is an on-line based company. We do not have an office, hence we don’t need to pay for it and can maintain low price for our services.


Third – We don’t have a call centre. All communication with our Clients is done on email. This method has proven its suitability and convenience over 8 years that we operate. Using emails instead of phone conversations is convenient as emails are picked up quickly and our Clients don’t need to adjust themselves to the time difference. We have many Clients from Far East and Australia that can send us an email at any time and this is just as convenient as for Client who live closer to our time zone.

Successful CDR Writing Advice – CDR Sample

Date: June 09, 2017


When you are writing your Competency Demonstration Report it is important to pay attention to the general requirements that Engineers Australia would like you to follow when writing your Career Episodes.


One of these general requirements is the word count for the Career Episodes as whole and for each part of it as well. Majority of these requirements can be found on pages 19-20 of EA booklet that you can find and download from the EA website.


Career Episodes should not exceed 2500 words (minimum word count is 1000 words); Introduction and Summary should be around 100 words each. Background should be 200-500 words and the main part of the Career Episode – Personal Engineering Activity should be between 500 and 1000 words. According to our experience if the Personal Engineering Activity exceeds 1000 words it normally does not cause any problem with an application.


When you write your Career Episodes you should not overwhelm them with excessive technical details. For example, if you have made various calculations during your project work, you should not provide the calculations themselves but write what kind of calculations you have performed. For example: during the work on this project I have carried out flow calculations for x system etc.


If during the work on a specific project you have made design drawings, you don’t need to provide all the drawings within your application, one will be enough. Do list the drawings you have prepared during the work on a project, this is quite important. Also, do specify professional software you used for drafting the drawings, simulation, testing, project management etc.
