You must have a basic idea of what is CDR or Competency Demonstration Report? So, bypassing the basics, let us get to real business.
Why You Need It?
It is compulsory for you have an approved CDR, only then can you get a visa to work as an engineer in Australia. The deciding authority, Engineers Australia, have mandated it for those countries or institutions who are not the members/ signatories of Washington Accord, Sydney Accord, or Dublin Accord.
We do not need to get deeper into these Accords as we are not interested in the international legal treaties. So, now a question arises – how to ensure that your CDR gets approved. The first step towards achieving that is by updating yourself with the components of CDR, failing which you nullify your chances of qualifying even for a visa.
Components Of CDR
The following picture enumerates the components of CDR.
Only two components (Career Episodes & Summary Statement) are to be written using your creativity. Moreover, the self-attested copy of your report must be accompanied to authenticate that the document is prepared by you. And all the academic documents are to be duly signed and attested. Further, the summary report must be strictly based on your three career episode reports and nothing additional should be added.
The presence of all these documents only ensures that your CDR will be evaluated, and the final outcome is depended on your skilful writing. Many professional writers also provide CDR writing services, however, not all of them are able to convert your chances.
But, We at My Assignment Services have been successfully able to convert 100% of our CDR into Australian work visas. This is not just tall talk; the details of CDR provided in this write-up speaks for itself.
Ideal Length Of CDR
Another aspect that usually complicates the minds of aspiring engineers, is the length CDR. If you are also one of those who has burned their midnight oil on internet, searching for “What should be the ideal length of my CDR?” and still unable in getting a satisfying answer, the following lines can be very soothing for you.
As we have already seen that only the career episode and a summary statement must be written in your own words, therefore, the word count is just limited to these two sections.
Each career episode must be 1500-1700 words in length.
- CE 1
- CE 2
- CE 3
And the summary statement should be 1500-1700.
Therefore, the total word count is 6000 to 6800 words. Extreme care must be taken so, this word count is not exceeded by much (10% at most). Moreover, you can also have a look at the sample provided on our website My Assignment Services and get a brief idea of how to limit your career episodes within the word count and in the same time incorporating all the details, with exquisite quality, within the same.
Last but not the least, writing guidelines for your CDR is listed in the Migration skills assessment booklet. The details for professional engineers, engineering associate, and engineering technologist are mentioned in this booklet.
It includes the details of your Resume, CPD, career episodes and summary statement. The Resume and CPD only list the facts like personal details, contacts, study details etc. However, one important characteristic that must be followed is the chronological listing of your employment details.
Further, the career episodes include your project details of 3rd, 6th and 8th Semester. All of these must be centred round your work and contribution. Use of proper English and active voice are additional details that need to be kept in mind.
Therefore, now that you are well aware of most dimensions, it will be easy to write a CDR or you choose the best from the lot to avail CDR writing services.
