If you want to have your name registered on NER Australia (National Engineering Register), then you must know how to apply and the documents you need to submit along with your application.
Having paid attention to this fact, we have written this blog so that we can make you familiar with these two things, so read the blog thoroughly.

You need to go through a five-step process to apply for a NER credential. The steps are below:
Make an account in the EA portal.
Log in and complete the online self-assessment to rate yourself against NER Engineers Australia competencies and apply for NER.
Obtain two relevant referees who must be able to verify your latest work experience.
Have a NER interview with an EA assessor.
Get your outcome notification. If it is a positive one, you will be automatically added to the NER.
If you are an Engineers Australia member, you can also join NER when applying for Chartered status.
