Areas of engineering
Competency assessments are used to ensure engineering professionals who want to work within Australia meet the benchmarked qualifications and competency standards to practise.
Engineers Australia uses two sets of competency standards per occupational category. Each one is used for a different purpose.
Entry to practice
If you need to complete an entry to practice competency assessment, you’ll be assessed against the entry to practice competencies for your occupational category.
Download the entry to practice competency assessment documents for:
- Professional engineers – includes summary statement: professional engineers
- Engineering technologists – includes summary statement: engineering technologists
- Engineering associates – includes summary statement: engineering associates
- Engineering manager – includes summary statement: engineering manager
If you want to apply for a Chartered or NER credential you’ll be assessed using an independent practice assessment (sometimes called stage 2). You’ll be assessed against the 16 elements of competency that are related to your occupational category. These sit across four core areas:
- Personal commitment.
- Obligation to community.
- Value in workplace.
- Technical proficiency.
