Ted Finch wonders: <<I am new to the tech writing profession. You are not
serious about a certification program are you.>>

Some people are VERY serious about it. But the fact of the matter is that
right now, you don't need a certificate or even a degree in the field to get
into our profession. You just need the right skills. Those skills must
include the ability to communicate well; they may also include advanced
technical knowledge of the subject matter but must include at least a basic
understanding of the subject. Whether you have to be able to program in Java
to document Java applications is a whole other argument. Not going there...
