ACREDITA CI PARTICIPATES IN IEA 2017 ANNUAL MEETING TO POSTULATE TO WASHINGTON ACCORD
Acredita CI participated in The International Engineering Alliance Meeting 2017 (IEAM2017) in order to be nominating to the Washington Accord and be accepted as a Provisional member. This major initiative is relevant for the development of accreditation processes for the scientifically based engineering careers in Chile. The event was performed in June 18-23, 2017 at Anchorage, Alaska, USA.
The International Engineering Alliance (IEA) is the entity responsible for coordinating the activities carried out by the Washington Accord, among other organisms related to both the accreditation of careers and mutual recognition agreements on the performance of engineers in the professional field.
The experience of sharing with other accreditation agencies of other countries like South Africa, Canada, Japan, China, India, New Zeeland, United Kingdom, Malaysia, Korea and other 6 countries empowers the development of Acredita CI principally acknowledging that the process of accreditation of these agencies granted the substantial equivalency of the programs accredited by this organisms. On the other hand the incorporation of Acredita CI will have benefits like:
- Training in the Process and Guidance of the Self review
- Permanent training of peer evaluators. Performance guidance.
- Washington Accord graduate attribute (graduate profile)
- External Assesement Visiting
- Accreditation Desition
Once Acredita CI integrates the Agreement, which will happen in London 2018, Civil Engineering programs and their specialties that wish accreditation through Acredita CI may choose to develop their processes in consideration of a fourth Dimension: the program´s graduate profile is oriented to the competencies of the Engineer who establishes the Agreement.
Acredita CI had the chance to share with a lot of international organisms, and checked that the accreditation process of the agency is solid. The following organisms assisted to the activity.
