Advice needed for skills assessment by Engineers Australia

We got a reply from Engineers Australia recently stating that my husband's UK degree falls under Computer Engineers and the only assessment outcome via the Washington Accord pathway is Engineering Professionals ANZSCO 233999.

If we want a different ANZSCO code, we would need to go through the CDR pathway. Though there is no guarantee that he will get assessed in his nominated occupation.

As our intention is to get a 189 independent visa, hence we are considering to send the CDR as we feel strongly that his experience falls under Plant and Production Engineer ANZSCO 233513.

My question is, is it worth it to submit the CDR, taking into account the additional cost and 4 months extra time required for assessment (which might not get us the desired outcome. During which DIAC might revise the SOL/CSOL.

Or is it recommended to accept the outcome of Engineering Professionals and apply under subclass 190 state nomination? My worry is that it won't be easy for the Engineering Professionals for state sponsorship, maybe due to lack of demand?

Thanks in advance.

I think this ultimately depends on where exactly in Australia you would like to go. If your desired state is sponsoring the occupation you are able to apply under then not only would the application be processed slightly quicker then the 189 but you would save yourself the 4 month wait of doing the CDR.

However if you feel highly confident about the occupation of plant and production engineer then you can choose to go with the CDR if you wish. My genuine advice would be to consultant a MARA agent, as your circumstances do not look straight forward.

Kind regards

Computer, Electrical and Mechanical are widely sought after professions in many Australian states, you shouldn't have problem getting a state sponsorship as it is. For CDR route, the burden of proof is huge and I mean HUGE and then as you also mentioned time and cost factors too.

Do you have any recommendation of a MARA agent?

Hi Raojaimin,

You will need to submit a skills assessment to Engineers Australia for them to decide if your qualifications can get you enough points to apply.

BTW, I think you're posting in the wrong thread.
