The Dublin Accord is an agreement of mutual recognition, also referred to as the MRA (Mutually Recognized Agreement). Originally a two-year engineering technology program for the international recognition of Engineering Technician qualifications in certain jurisdictions from around the world.
In May 2002 the national engineering organizations of New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, South Africa, Canada, the United States and South Korea, signed an agreement. This agreement mutually recognizes the qualifications which underpin the granting of Engineering Technician titles in the above six (6) countries.
If you are concerned your program may not be recognized, it is highly recommended you go through these set of questions to determine if your program is recognized by the Dublin Accord.
Note: New Zealand and the United States were not a part of the original agreement and have since come forth and joined the Dublin Accord in official capacity.
Along with the Dublin Accord and reaching the level of an engineer, it is important to know how to increase your salary once you obtain the engineering job you worked so hard to achieve.
