My application to Membership application to Engineers Australia was just approved at the Grade of Member (Professional) for with a fee of $380.25 which I've not paid yet for the following reason:

My Migration Skills Assessment application is giving me an additional cost of $410.00 for "Application for Assessment of Professional Engineering Qualifications (Washington Accord)", making the total for the MSA application around $740. My question is, Does becoming a member absolve me from this fee? Cause It's redundant as They've already assessed my Qualifications for the Membership application.

As I see it right now, I should forget about becoming a member and just go for the Migration Skills Assessment application, is this the right way to do it?

Thanks!

Hi, Just to update this thread in case anyone else is inquiring about the same thing in the future: After getting my membership with EA (which did an assessment of my qualifications during this step), The fee of $410.00 for "Application for Assessment of Professional Engineering Qualifications (Washington Accord)" was reduced to zero for my MRA Application.

It's not a discount, but it's nice of them to not make me double pay.
