To avoid your CDR rejection by Engineers Australia, you will have to prepare an excellent CDR that can attract EA for positive outcome.

As we know competency demonstration report (CDR) is a lengthy report that comprises three elements such as

  1. three career episodes,
  2. a summary statement, and
  3. a CPD.

 As it is an extensive piece of technical writing (based on your career) you have to dedicate a sufficient amount of time and put in your utmost effort as per MSA booklet guidelines to avoid skilled assessment rejections.

8 Reasons for 3 CDR Career Episode Rejections

You have to prepare three career episodes to display your engineering abilities in the nominated occupation. Career episodes are an integral part of your application. Each career episode must be based on different aspects of your engineering activity. Each narrative must demonstrate how you applied your engineering skills and knowledge in the nominated occupation.

Following points in mind while writing your career episodes to avoid rejections:

  • Each career episode must be written in English and in your own words and it acts as evidence of your communication skills to your assessor.
  • You do not need to include excessive textbook materials and instructions.
  • You must write each narrative a minimum of 1000 words and a maximum of 2500 words.
  • You must describe what you did and then describe how you did it.
  • You must choose proper projects before you start writing your career episodes; your projects may be based on academic tasks that you have done in the final year of your engineering degree, a mini project, or engineering internship and engineering projects that you have been involved with.
  • Each episode must demonstrate the engineering problem identified by you and the particular problem-solving technique you applied.
  • Each career episode must be written in the proper format consisting of three career episodes, a summary statement, and CPD.
  • You must write each narrative in an essay format and do not format it into a table.

5 Reason for CDR Summary Statement Rejections

  • You must prepare a summary statement for all your career episodes.
  • Once you have completed writing your career episodes, you have to analyze them to ensure that you have addressed all the competency elements in the nominated occupation.
  • You must show the analysis result in the summary statement.
  • The summary statement cross-references the competency element with the particular paragraph in a career episode where it occurs.
  • You can download the summary statement form for your nominated occupation from the Engineers Australia website.

3 Reasons For CPD Rejections

You must provide a list of CPD to demonstrate how you have updated your engineering knowledge with the development in the engineering field after your undergraduate qualification. You must write a CPD in a table format containing title, date, duration, and location and organizer details. You may include:

  • The post-graduation study details
  • Seminars, short courses, workshops, discussion groups, technical inspections, and technical meetings that you have attended
  • Conferences you have attended and where you have delivered papers

How To Avoid CDR rejections?

  • You must adhere to all the MSA guidelines and procedures to make your report authentic.
  • You must write your career in the first person singular pronoun clearly indicating your own personal role in the work described.
  • Your career episodes must be written entirely in your own words. Showing the work conducted by others as your own or using other's information is considered plagiarism and a violation of EA's code of ethics.
  • If you violate Engineers Australia's code of ethics, you may be banned or your candidature may be canceled for 12, 24, or 36 months.
  • You must number each of your career episodes and the paragraphs within in the following manner:

Career Episode 1

(Paragraphs 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, etc.)

Career Episode 2

(Paragraphs 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, etc.)

Career Episode 3

(Paragraphs 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, etc.)

Note: If your CDR application is rejected by Engineers Australia, you can again lodge your New CDR application by correcting all the comments given by Engineers Australia (EA).
