According to the agreement, all Southern Launch engineers will be provided with Engineers Australia (EA) membership.

The engineers will also be able to apply for Chartered status, a form of accreditation, through the partnership. Chartered credentials are internationally recognised and will demonstrate that Australian engineers meet world-class competency standards, EA said.
