There are multiple knowledge and skill base, application ability of engineering skills, ethics, attitudes and professional skills, which are to be demonstrated by engineers seeking to practice independently or unsupervised. These skills can are generally expressed professionally making use of the Stage 2 Competency Standards.
Purpose of the Stage 2 competency standards
Chartered membership of Engineers Australia (CPEng) and registration on the National Engineering Register (NER) are generally granted based on the results of the Stage 2 competency standards. Engineers Australia has the exclusive access to Chartered membership. The general public worldwide and the general businesses and government seek these professional credentials. A career long obligation to maintain standards and ensure greater competence in the chosen area is naturally facilitated by achieving a CPEng.
What are the expectations from Professional Engineer?
It is essential for an experienced professional to live by the expectations of expectations concerning their competence, application of competence and manner of self-conduction.
Experienced professional engineers:
The available interactions between people and technology are considered by experienced professional engineers, besides the physical outcomes that are generally facilitated by engineering outcomes. The process of development of the overall science of engineering and new principle and technologies within the overall discipline of engineering through appropriate research can be seen to be a major responsibility of experienced engineers. The development and maintenance of regulatory codes, providing knowledge to new engineers and engendering a continuous process of improvement in the field is also a major task associated with them.
Stage 2 competency standards
The Stage 2 competency standards as they are applicable to all the engineering units:
Elements of competence and indicators of attainment are generally contained in each individual unit. The necessary capabilities are the elements of competence necessary in each unit, whereas, the demonstration of attainment of necessary competence is to be considered and guided by the indicators of attainment.
Documentation Expected Towards the Application
A multi-level documentation process is necessarily undertaken for the application process of CPEng towards Chartered Status recognition as a Professional Engineer. The evidence towards your engineering claims put forward are to be documented by the necessary documents.Some of the submission requirements are required byEngineers Australia for Chartered Professional Engineers.
Your overall personal involvements in technical engineering projects are to be documented by the Engineering Competency Claims. Use of appropriate words in CDRReports is essential for enhancement of appeal, which is facilitated by professional experts and writers. The following aspects are to be focused on in the Stage 2 Competency Standard: the applicants must show commitment to service and demonstrate workplace values, technical proficiency and obligations towards engineering profession and community generally.
In about 700 words your previous professional experience consisting of all employment role and background is collated by the Engineering Experience Record (EER). Having a moderately complex and time consuming nature, there is a need for an optimum understanding of EA expectations.
The assessment pathway selected by you is a determining factor for the kind of submission required. You can choose an appropriate pathway towards the eChartered Competency Assessment.
A total number of ECCs or engineering competency claims ranging from 11 to 16 can be submitted while choosing eChartered Pathway for submission. 16 ECCs are to be submitted by applicants opting for Engineering Competency Report (or ECR pathways). Personal experience and exposure to technical projects are to be detailed in each ECC claim. EA has shared a set of Stage 2 Competency Standards, which are to be used by professionals while developing each ECC. Time inefficiency and toil are extreme in this case, resulting in inappropriate formation of all 16 ECCs, which can impact the overall application.
Four essential elements of EA Stage 2 Competency Standards:
An overall solution to the submission of documents for Chartered Status (CPEng) registration process with the EA (Engineers Australia) is facilitated by CDRReport. We provide an all-in-one solution for ECC, EER and CPD development at CDRReport. The development of all the aforementioned documents is assisted to and reviewed by our expert team at CDRReport.
Two stages of assessment of competence is generally required to be undertaken for an Engineers Australia membership and registration on the National Registers:
Stage 2 Competency Assessment
Stage 2 competency assessment is required to be undertaken in case, there is a need to apply for registration on a National Engineering Register or get Chartered Status

Is there a need of stage 2 assessment?
If you are not a member of Engineers Australia
The satisfying of the requirements set forth by Engineers Australia is mandatory to be registered, even though membership to the same is subjective.
A grade of full member and joining Engineers Australia is deemed to be mandatory for the attainment of Chartered status. (MIEAust, TMIEAust or AMIEAust Please refer to the Chartered section of this website to find out more.
If you are a member of Engineers Australia, but not a Chartered member
An application in your occupational category for Chartered Membership is essential. Chartered status is to be accompanied by registration. A clear indication of the areas of practice you require in the application is essential.
I am a member of an overseas engineering association
A Mutual Recognition Agreement (MRA) with Engineers Australia is necessary to be checked of the overseas engineering association.
If there is an agreement, you can use the option of applying through Mutual Recognition Agreement. Login and apply now.
If you are a current Chartered member
An application for registration on NPER is the only need in case you are a current Chartered Professional Engineer (CPEng) and you have an updated CV and your review process is up to date. You would need to submit an up to date CV and recent CPD record if you want (This is not mandatory for submission).
You can easily identify a current Chartered Professional Engineer (CPEng) with an achievement of CPEng since 1995 or is having a practice review and CPD outcome in the last 5 years.
NB: All people registered on the NPER needs to meet these criteria
