CDR Application - Inst of Engineers for Civil Engineering

Recommended Posts



My husband and I have just applied for a visa, and already hit a problem at the Stage One Review. :sad:


My husband works for Local Governement as a Highways Technician and is currently doing a Degree in Civil Engineering on Day Release through work. However, due to the nature of his work, his experience is limited to Highways only and therefore he has only got 40 points for his job.


We have been told that we could apply for the CDR application which would then give him 60 points if it were successful.. but this is considered a 'high risk' application as he may not fulfil the criteria due to limited work experience.


So, my question is really, does anyone have any knowledge of this CDR application and what the fundamental requirements are, basically would we be throwing good money by doing it?


I really hope someone can help us.

Many Thanks.




P.s (I am not in a position as yet to apply as the main applicant as I have no professional qualification in my current job, but I am changing my career slightly this year and will gain a professional qualification just in case we have to apply in my name in a year or two.)

Hi Lainey,

Have a look at the Engineers Australia website here:

Advice to Applicants

There's some good information about the CDR process.

Good Luck
