Mexican PE License

Mexican PE License

Mexican PE License

I have googled this till I am blue in the face - maybe missing something.  NCEES does not seem to have anything either.

Bottom Line - Does anyone know the requirments or how to get a Mexican (NOT New Mexico - already have that) Professional Engineering License??

From what I can find - they really did not have much licensing before 1995 and it maybe a Federal License and not by "state".

Any help would be appreciated.

RE: Mexican PE License

THANKS - Hope they speak English??

RE: Mexican PE License

One of the requirements is to speak and write fluent SPANISH.

Here is the link that explains the requirements for registration of your degree and the issuance of a license (Cedula Profesional)

I might need to get a license in Calgary. Does that mean i need to learn Canadian?

I'm sure the drug lords will need to get their kickback as well.

RE: Mexican PE License

TX has a reciprocity agreement with Mexico and I bet the board doesn't require Mexican applicants to speak and write fluent english.

My point is that US state boards are somewhat naive (or do they just want the revenues?) in agreeing to reciprocity deals with other countries and yet the other countries have built in barriers to entry.   

RE: Mexican PE License

I think for language, the US does not have an official language.  Thus, you can not force somebody from the out side coming into the US to speak English.  However, to be employed in Corporate America, you must speak fluent English.

Isn't the only Canadian word "Molson"?

I thought it was La Bat?

RE: Mexican PE License

IMHO - we have WORN this thread out - And thank you all for the info.  Right now I doubt I will pursue this - but at least I know where to go.

Thanks again...
