  1. Hi All My husband and I have decided that we'd finally like to start the proceedings to applying for a visa. It looks like we're eligible for the 176 state sponsored. My husband is a mechanical design engineer/draughtsman. It looks as though he is going to have to do the Competency Demonstration Report with Engineers Australia. We've learnt about the changes to the points system taking place in July 2011, its likely that we'll struggle to get our application accepted after this date. This means that we have a relatively short time to get this application prepared. I've read on Engineers Australia that the processing time for the CDR is 16 weeks. I've been reading on various forums that people spend months putting their CDR together. Clearly, if we want to get our application in before the points change we don't have very much time available to us. Can anyone help with answering how long they spent preparing their CDR? We're happy to use a migration agent to help with this aspect (possibly the whole application), is using an agent for this aspect a good help? ie take some of the legwork out of it for us, in terms of putting the CDR together? and more importantly, reduce the time in which it will take us to prepare it? As its a report so personal to the individuals work experience I can’t see right now what a migration agent can do to help with it. I’m waiting calls back from a couple of agents but thought it worth a mention on here. Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.
  2. Hi There, I am new to this site, so please bare with me if I am repeating previous posts. I passed my TRA on 4th May 2009 - Supervisor, Communications Tradespersons 4316-01 But I have been told that my application for a 176 Skilled visa is on hold for the forseeable future. I have been advised to now try and apply for: Telecommunications Network Planner ANZSCO 313213. I have worked for BT since school and I am now in my 25th year. I hold the position of Fibre Planner. I have read the criteria, to create a CDR for my position but I am having problems in getting all the information that they require onto paper. Please if anyone can give me some pointers it would be very much appereciated. My family (wife and 2 children) are so desperate to get out to Oz. My brother and his family have been residents for 3 years now and my Mum and Dad have been out there for nearly 9 months, and we so want to join them. Once again, if anyone could help us we would all appreciate it ever so much. Regards.
  3. Hi all, I'm from Tunisia and I hold an engineering degree in IT. I went through the ACS assessment but got a negative one... It seems they didn't recognize my degree as a bachelor degree or more.... thought I've sent them all my degrees certificate, transcripts, description of my courses and the study plan signed by my uni. I also get a paper signed by my uni describing the educational system in Tunisia which is the same as in France... I wasn't expecting such a decision since I already received 3 masters offers from Australian universities including RMIT. I think also the translation of my degree (Diplome nationale d'ingénieur en Informatique) to National engineering degree in IT didn't make any sense for them... Now that I'm wondering if I shouldn't have applied for Engineers Australia instead and went for a CDR?? In total I have studied 5 years and a half post secondary school.. and I hold 3 years experience as engineer... to get an engineer degree in Tunisia, you have to go through what we call a first cycle that lasts 2 to 3 years and you can get a technician degree.. only after that first cycle you can apply for engineering classes that lasts 3 years... so for me, I hold a first degree as a higher technician (2.5years) and then my engineer degree (3 years)... As far as I've looked I only found civil/mechanical engineers posts about CDR.. so am starting to wonder if I can also apply as an IT engineer... Please don't hesitate to share your experience or give me advice.. am kinda getting desperate of all this... Thanks !
  4. Hi, I'm new to this technology, so if this doesn't come out right or look right, please accept my apologies, however, my query is - my partner and myself are currently getting together all the reqd. info to apply for a general skilled visa. Unfortunately, my partner is a civil engineer in the UK, but does not have a degree, therefore he has been advised by our migration company that with the skills and experience he has he should try the CDR route under the Washington Accord. Has anyone else gone down this route? How did it go? Any advice would be gratefully received Rinny:jiggy:
  5. Hi there. I have looking at getting my skills assessed but I cannot have my skills assessed against my current occupation! I have worked in the power industry all my life, starting as an apprentice and working through the industry to my current position as power system engineer, but I only have my trade qualifications and an ONC in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. I have been in touch with Engineers Australia and they say I may be able to be assessed under the Competency Demonstration Report Route and be assessed against the Engineering Associate. Has anyone been down this route and can offer any advice? Cheers Mike
