    Hello po mga sir and mam, magsusubmit palang po ako ng documents sa EA. Problema po ngayon, ayaw ng ibang employer ko magbigay ng employment letter / certificate of employment. Ano pong advise nyo? Thanks.

    i think ang option mo lang boss is to get a stat dec from your colleagues saying that you worked there. Everything should be in the EA manual.

    Thanks sa reply sir. I have reviewed the manual (page 27, 4.5 important note) and it states that stat decs and affidavits are will not be accepted as primary or secondary documents. Ang meaning ba nito sir, hindi ma-aassess yng experience ko dito sa company na ito?

    look's like it boss.

    sorry, i was referring to VETASSESS and ACS assessments when i said what i said earlier. your best chance would be to get your contract and hopefully the JD is there.

    Thanks for the input sir.

    I would suggest to contact EA and ask exactly what you posted here. Rather than asking here on the forum and one person’s guess is as good as anyone else. Best of luck

    Hello, everyone.

    I had a positive outcome for my MSA and RSEA already.
    My partner is also of the same skillset as with me, Civil Engineer.
    I just want to know, kailangan din ba niya magpaassess ng MSA if di naman siya yung primary applicant for visa 190?
    Our plan kasi is ako ang magapply for EOI ng visa 190, then secondary ko siya. Pero to get the full point, dapat may competent Enlish siya and same skill as mine.
    Pwede ba na hindi na siya magpaassess sa EA and just prove yung skill niya sa Home Affairs through diploma, certificates, prc license, and certificate of employments?

    Hi everyone! Hope all is well. I would like to seek advice po sana regarding my case:

    1. I am B.S. Chem Eng graduate from a recognized university. I have 2y 10mos experience from 1st job working as control systems engineer. I have 5y 11mos experience from 2nd job working as pipeline engineer. Both companies are in Oil and Gas industry and nature of work are in design and engineering. But I work for each company I worked under different departments/roles lang. I initially applied for Professional Civil Engineer assessment to EA, and got cleared as Engineering Technologist (MSA only and not RSEA). All my 3 CE's came from my 2nd job.

    2. My understanding is that in my case, EA assessed me as Engineering Technologist base on my qualifications only but it will still be Dept of Immi who will assess how many years from my work experience will be credited, is that correct?

    3. So given point 2 and my nominated occupation, is it possible to include my first job when I claim points in EOI? Even though I did not used it for CDR? Base on the booklet, the Engineering technologist (233914) seem to be a generalist occupation i.e. unlike Professional Engineers who have specific job descriptions on specific fields. Even if I had different department/role but same nature of project and industry, as long as I can provide COE, pay slip, SSS proofs etc.. Can it still be considered relevant and be used to claim points?

    If ever it will add 5 more points since my total experience will be 8y already. That is why I am exploring this possibility.

    Thanks for anyone who can share their thoughts about this!

    Hi Bro, enable for you to claim another 5 points, you spouse must have positive skill assessment. Kung hindi po sya naassess ng relevant authority you can’t claim 5 points for skill. Nakasaad kasi doon na kailangan meron positive skill assessment sa relevant authority. If yung spouse nyo ay hnd mag papaassess, only 5 points lang ang makukuha nyo pra sa criteria nya.
    Yung RSEA no need na for her, pero kung sayo ikaw main applicant, I recommend na mag avail ka ng RSEA, for your peace of mind narin pero sa huli ay ang DHA parin ang mag dedecide nyan sa years of experience mo kung relevant ba ito.

    Just to clarify on the partner points, 5 points for competent English and 10 points for competent English AND positive skills assessment

    just to check if my understanding is correct, the partner should be on the same SOL list, right? if one is on the STSOL and the other is MLTSSL (main applicant on the STSOL), we can only claim 5 points, right?

    also, would it be worthwhile to claim with DHA work experience that is not included in the assessment by the relevant assessing authority?

    Hello po, I just got my positive outcome from EA today but I'm curious about the difference between Completed/Awarded on the outcome letter. Anyone knows what's the difference between the two? Can I claim the 15pts for Bachelors degree or is it just 10 pts for attaining a qualification or award recognized by the relevant assessing authority? I have "Awarded" in my letter but have Bachelor Degree in AQF Level.

    Hi everyone. Ask ko lang if marerecognize ba ni EA ang work experience ko here in Oz. I'm currently working for 1 year now as an Electrical Engineer but yung salary ko is $50,000 lang. Is this enough for the relevant skill assessment? Nabasa ko kasi sa booklet na work experience should be paid at the market or
    salaried rate for engineering professionals. Anyone here who can enlighten this or maybe has the same experience?

  • JeckaGJeckaG Posts: 1Member

    Hi, good day!

    Would like to check if baka may nakaexperience na po sa inyo ng ganito na scenario:

    Employed for 6 yrs dito sa Pinas and since maliit lang si company na contractor, hindi nya binabayaran ang tax and SSS and other supporting docs na magagamit sana for EA Assessment. So mabibigay lang nila is COE for primary document. So I am thinking kung pano kaya yung secondary documents na kailangan ko. How to check po kaya if pwede pa maassess for RSEA?

    Maraming salamat po.

    Good (rainy ) afternoon engineers. I'm making a course for CDR Writing and looking for course testers around the 3rd or 4th week of November. If you plan to submit an MSA application by December, you may send me a message and apply as a course tester/reviewer. At the end of the course, you will have a CDR ready in 14 days or less. Thanksy, community!!!

    Why do a course? You just need to follow the guidelines. That’s what all my clients have done and we’ve not had any negative outcomes to date. I don’t think such course is necessary. If one is able to gain an engineering qualification from university then he/she’s capable of producing a CDR.

  • MumVengMumVeng NSWPosts: 154Member

    Have you written a CDR, Ms. Rhea? It's not just about writing skills. My course considers that these engineers have other priorities in their life. The reality is that they have the ability to write reports but not the focus and time to produce them. That is the problem that my course aims to address.

    Oh, is it your course? I didn’t realise that. Apologies, I didn’t mean to negate your comment. I haven’t written a CDR since I’m not an engineer and I don’t need to write one. So far my clients were able to produce them just by following the guidelines along with guidance/feedback from us and had successful results. We’ve not had an EA skills assessment fail. Hence, something I would not think of recommending. And yes, they are capable to write CDRS and must invest time to produce one. We agents don’t really encourage clients to third party providers as we need to make sure they do these things by themselves. It would be unethical for us otherwise.

    All the best on the course you’re running.

    Hi Mga Kabayan and Fellow Civil Engineer, I am new in this forum. I got concern a lot of question regarding migration/working to Australia.
    I am a licensed Civil Engineer in PH. PH experience: - Four (4) years’ experience as a Site Engineer in Building Projects in PH, Singapore Experience: -1 (one) Year as Project Engineer and Three (3) Years as QS Total of 8 Years Working experience. I am planning to take Visa 189 or 190, currently am drafting my CDR but am doubted what should I Write in my Career Episodes.
    • Am drafting my Career EP 1 regarding my thesis manuscript during my student time. This thesis was about research on how to strengthen the concrete using the steel waste fiber generated from lathes machines. So there’s an involvement of calculation, concrete analysis, etc. and social and environmental contribution.
    • Career Episode 2&3- On progress drafting but It's more in Site operation and completion of Building project.
    I got a concern that hoping you could help me as follows:
    1. Is my 3 years’ experience as QS can recognize as related working experience for the nominated skill occupation I wish to apply for?
    2. I read the MSA booklet Clause 2.5.2 stated, “career episode is an account of your engineering education and/or work experience”. That’s why I drafted my career ep 1 during my engineering Educ. Is my Career Episode 1 drafting being strong enough? Or I should focus on 4 years of working experience as a civil Engineer?
    3. If using a point calculator, I could have 75 Pts for 189 while 80 Pts for 190. What type I should select 189 or 190. Or any other visa you can advise?
    4. I’m also exploring maybe select the visa 491 I could have 90Pts. Understand this is not PR. Any concern or disadvantage of this visa?
    5. Gusto ko n kc po I process ng rush para atleast mkpunta nako sa Australia at mkawork. If hindi po ako successfully n ma invite sa 189 OR 190 baka don muna ako sa 491. Any thoughts on this?
    Hope you guys can answer all my question. Thanks in advance!

    Hope you guys can answer all my question. Thanks in advance!

    Let me try to answer your questions boss, but best if you either consult an agent, or read through the EA manual several times over just to be sure.
    1. You should be able to include the 3 years experience as a Quantity Surveyor since some Civil Engineers start out their careers as QS. It all depends how you craft your episodes. Make sure you align your episodes with the ANZSCO description of a Civil Engineer.
    2. It is alright to refer one of your episodes to your studies but in my opinion, best to have your episodes refer to your work experience. if you refer to your studies, you have to ensure you have complete supporting documents to support your claim.
    3. you can apply for both when you lodge your EOI
    4 & 5. you won't be a PR and would have to go through the lodgment process in 3 years' time. if you want to risk it, no issues with that. in my opinion, we won't know what will happen in the next 3 years so if you have a chance to get a PR now, that is always the best option.

    Let me try to answer your questions boss, but best if you either consult an agent, or read through the EA manual several times over just to be sure.
    1. You should be able to include the 3 years experience as a Quantity Surveyor since some Civil Engineers start out their careers as QS. It all depends how you craft your episodes. Make sure you align your episodes with the ANZSCO description of a Civil Engineer.
    2. It is alright to refer one of your episodes to your studies but in my opinion, best to have your episodes refer to your work experience. if you refer to your studies, you have to ensure you have complete supporting documents to support your claim.
    3. you can apply for both when you lodge your EOI
    4 & 5. you won't be a PR and would have to go through the lodgment process in 3 years' time. if you want to risk it, no issues with that. in my opinion, we won't know what will happen in the next 3 years so if you have a chance to get a PR now, that is always the best option.

    @TotoyOZresident Hi Sir, appreciate your answers.. another question :- how is the EA will merit your years working experience is this base on your CV stating the years of working experience (with supporting document) or base on your CDR? or they will consolidate all and be basing only on my CV? My understanding is that each career episode shall demonstrate/focuses on my "specific period" of your "engineering activity". so my CDR not necessarily covered all of years experience, the CV will give the overview of your working experience which they will look into how they award your claiming points. any thoughts on this? slamat!

    read through the manual and you'll see how EA will assess your relevant working experience. go to section C 2.4

    Hi, ECE graduate po ako, hindi po ako licensed ECE. Tatanong ko lang po sana kung may naassess po ba dito from sec 3 school as Professional Engineer na hindi rin po licensed?
    Thank you

    San po kayo ng wowork ngayon? if overseas employed kayo need po ng certifications ng governing body dyan na certified kayo to work as Engineer. if sa pinas po need tlga ng PRC license to be assessed by EA.

    Hi Sir, sa Smart po ako nagwowork ngayon. With 4 years experience (2 years sa agency 2 as regular employee). PRC license po ba need ko kung sakali?

    I am revisiting and rephrased my question, theres still a doubt and confusion been running on my head, such a question regarding how to claim the points from my working experience. As explain to yours previously.
    1. I got a total 8 years of experience (5 years site civil engr + 3 years QS) but the question is how to successfully claim this working experience?
    2. My understanding that Engineer Australia can assess your degree qualification and skill through Standard CDR. (Let say i will write my CDR from my 5 years CE experience with supp doc) However how about other remaining experience?
    3. Is the 5 years experience that I demonstrated in CDR could award 5 years experience by EA?
    3. Do i need to engage additional service such RSEA from EA to assess the remaining work experience? or this addtl service can assess all my work experience?
    4. Is there’s other way to claim all 8 years experience without the additional service.? I hope you guys can help me on above clarification.
