Get assessed for Victoria registration

Victoria now requires some engineers to be assessed against competency standards and registered to practise.

Engineers Australia understands these standards.

Why choose Engineers Australia to get assessed?

  • Only we can assess all engineering qualifications, including those obtained overseas.  
  • Only we can assess all areas of professional engineering.  
  • We are the only Australian assessment entity with a Chartered pathway to registration. 

Who needs to be assessed?

Civil and structural professional engineers practising in Victoria need to be registered by 1 October 2022. This includes engineers living in other states and territories, but may be working on projects based in Victoria.

You should take the first step of applying for a competency assessment as soon as possible to avoid missing the deadline.

To be registered as a professional engineer in Victoria, your competence can be assessed through one of the following pathways and your outcome report provided to the Business Licensing Authority (BLA).

If you wish to practise in the Victorian building industry, you will also require a building endorsement assessment.
