English Language Test
From the 1st of November 2017, engineers Australia will be accepting the Pearson’s Test of English (PTE) (Academic) for Migration Skills Assessment as well as for membership assessment purposes. Applicants submitting their application after the 1st November will be able to either use the IELTS, TOEFL iBT or the PTE (Academic) to demonstrate their level of English in an assessment application.
Applicants must show a minimum score of 50 in each of the 4 modules (Listening, Writing, Reading and Speaking)
Engineering is a regulated profession in many countries. In some countries, only certain disciplines are regulated, like Civil or Electrical Engineering, and in others, any engineer must be registered to practice.
If an applicant for Migration Skills Assessment has been practicing in a country where Engineering is a regulated profession, such as Pakistan or the Philippines, he/she must include evidence of registration in the application.

• Australian Qualifications And Accords Qualifications Assessment: 6 weeks
