CDR writing rules

When you are writing your CDR, particularly the Career Episodes, you should follow CDR writing rules. One of the most important rules when you are writing your Career Episodes is to avoid any plagiarism. Even if you use any internet sources to find other CDRs or Career Episodes for reference, you need to make sure that you don’t copy and paste any content from there “as is”. All content you use needs to be heavily modified so that nothing from the original content appears in your Career Episodes.

When Engineers Australia receive you application, they compare the wording of your Career Episodes to their database and check if any content is same to previous submitted CDRs. The worst type of negative outcome you may receive from the Engineers Australia is a rejection on a plagiarism basis. In this case not only your application will be rejected, you will also not have a possibility to reapply with a new CDR for a period of time or even indefinitely. So follow these most important CDR writing rules and avoid plagiarism in your CDR.

You can find a lot of online plagiarism checking software. If you do use some online resources for information, do use plagiarism checking software to check if there is any plagiarism left in your Career Episodes. This will help you avoiding plagiarism from online sources.

If you order our services for CDR writing, we would never copy content from any online resources and any previous CDRs we have prepared. We also use specialist plagiarism checking software that allows us to check that your Career Episodes are free of plagiarism against online sources. Also, this software allows us to check content of your Career Episodes against all CDRs we have previously done so there is no way of plagiarism to appear in your CDR.

Today CDRsample will answer one of important questions:  When applying for migration skills assessment with the Engineers Australia  – what professions can get on without design experience?

Normally when you are writing your CDR, it is very important to describe in detail you design experience; this is the main part and the core of your Career Episodes. Describing your design experience is particularly important if you apply as a Professional Engineer. Professions that the design experience is essential are Mechanical Engineers, Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Chemical Engineers and others. So, what professions could usually get on without design experience?

These are professions that naturally don’t or don’t always have design responsibilities naturally involved within their day work. One of the examples to such professions is Material Engineering.  According to Material Engineering ANZSCO code description Material Engineers “Investigates the properties of metals, ceramics, polymers and other materials and assesses and develops their engineering and commercial applications”. This may mainly involve work in the laboratory. And “design” here may involve process design (in lab) to arrive to correct material’s properties.

Another exclusion is the Industrial Engineer who works on business operational improvement rather than on plant layout design or line redesign for efficiency improvement. These are proper Industrial Engineers who “Investigate and review the utilisation of personnel, current operational processes and established practices, to recommend improvement in the efficiency of operations in a variety of commercial, industrial and production environments”.

An any case, before you start working on your CDR, you should read your profession ANZSCO code description and make sure that experience detailed in your Career Episodes comply to your ANZSCO code description.  The best source for information about ANZSCO code is in the following link: . This is very important to apply under a correct ANZSCO code for successful assessment with the Engineers Australia.

CDR application

We at CDRsample deal with CDR for migration skills assessment.  We don’t only deal with CDR writing but also would like to expand and cover topics that are related to your CDR application as a whole.

When you apply for migration skills assessment via CDR path and send your CDR application to the Engineers Australia they check it in the following way:  First of all they check the Summary Statement for presence of major indicators, especially these in the second part of the Summary Statement – PE2 “Engineering Application Ability”. This part of the Summary Statement is particularly important especially for Professional Engineers as it should demonstrate your design and design related abilities. Hence, when you write your Summary Statement make sure that you cover this part of the Summary Statement well and demonstrate as many indicators as you possibly can.

Then the assessor would check the reference paragraphs in Summary Statement and read the paragraphs in the Career Episodes that you stated are covering a particular competency. So, when you write the Summary Statement, make sure that you fill in relevant reference paragraphs.

After that the assessor would read each of your Career Episodes your CV and your CPD. Make sure that you enclose all relevant documents with your CDR application. Checklist is available in MSA booklet which you can download from Engineers Australia website.

In CDRsample we provide Summary Statement writing services. A lot of Engineers are very confused with Summary Statement preparation and it is the most challenging part of CDR application indeed.
