Alan...take a look at the following link. It is for certification to be a
certified records manager. You know, those little gnomes who live in the
basement of your building, retrieving files for you and sending boxes to a
mountain made of iron. Shoot...how hard can THAT be. http://www.icrm.org/outline.htm

Subject: RE: Hostility towards STC
Guy K. Haas asked:
<<Is certification something STC should pursue?>>
This is something that has been discussed here in the past. My personal
answer is No. Not until STC achieves significantly more respect,
credibility, and stature within and without the technical writing
profession. Even then, I forsee serious difficulties in defining the scope
and content of a Technical Writer Professional Certification. We are just
too diverse a group to try to pin down. This is a problem frequently pointed
out on this list. This problem is not insurmountable, however. I submit for
your consideration the following.
TECHNICAL WRITER PROFESSIONAL CERTIFICATION TEST
Read each question carefully. Answer all questions. Time limit 4 hours.
Begin immediately. Work in numerical order (equipment remaining from
question 1 may prove useful with questions 3 and 6.)
You have been provided with a razor blade, a piece of gauze, and a bottle of
Scotch. Remove your appendix. Do not suture until your work has been
inspected. You have 15 minutes.
