Abstract

Korea has promoted industrialization under its national economic development plans that were commenced in 1960 and needed to train and produce skilled technical workers during this process. Accordingly, each department of the government introduced a national qualification system focusing on the area of technology by using the qualification systems of other countries, such as Germany and Japan, as models. The early qualification systems contributed to transforming Korea’s industrial structure from an agriculture-centered into a manufacturing-centered, and established a basis for national basic industries.
Since then, national qualification systems, which had been operated under the individual business laws according to the promotion of heavy chemical industry preference policies for technicians at the national level, were integrated into the National Technical Qualification Act in 1973. With the enactment of this Act, many qualified technicians needed by industry were developed, and the qualification system has been constantly improved in accordance with the needs of the field.
