Frequently Asked Questions

We work individually with each Client and create unique Competency Demonstration Report (CDR). We work in very close cooperation with our customers. The CDR preparation involves efforts from both sides, our and yours.

When you purchase our services, we will send you questions list in regards to your professional experience. You will be asked to answer these questions and send it back to us. Then we will prepare your first Career Episode based on these answers. We will adjust and modify your answer to fit the current EA (or other assessment authority) requirements. If any information is missing, we will complete it if we can. If we can’t complete the missing information by ourselves, we will ask you few additional questions.

If major information is missing (such as design experience), we will offer you our research services (ask us about it). 

When first Career Episode is ready and approved by the Client, we will then repeat the process for the second and the third Career Episodes.

When all three Career Episodes are ready, we will prepare Summary  Statement and the CPD. We won’t need any input from your side for Summary Statement and CPD preparation.

The whole process is transparent to you and you can request any changes / additions to be done to your Career Episodes before we start working on your Summary Statement.

See more CDRsample FAQs below.

Normally assistance in the complete CDR preparation takes about 3-4 weeks. Of course, this would also depend on how fast the customer would reply to our questions.

There are also “speedy services” available, we complete these cases within about 2 weeks.

The price of the service depends on the state of your Career Episodes which normally needed to be upgraded for successful assessment with Engineers Australia.

If the Episodes do not require any changes, or require only minor changes and you would like us to prepare the Summary Statement, the price will be less than in the case your Career Episodes require a lot of changes / wording to add (more then 50%). Our prices are comparatively low to the market’s prices. Please send us your inquiry (to or use the Contact form) and we will send you our price list.

Normally assistance in the Summary Statement preparation alone without modifying Career Episodes takes about 4-5 days.
