Portuguese term or phrase: Técnico Superior (in this context)
This appears in a residency card from Portugal. The wording used above and below the director's signature leaves me confused. It appears like this:


CHEFE DO DRED (Stamped text)



Técnico Superior"

I know this same term is used in Venezuela to refer to an advance technical degree, but doubt this is the case here. The other proz entry of técnico superior (with "senior technician" and "advanced technician" as answers which don't seem to fit here) doesn't provide context.

Any thoughts?
