Re: Associate Degree in Technical Communications
My tech writer job descriptions all say "or equivalent experience."
My personal threshold for this has traditionally been the old PE
exam criteria (four years OTJ gets you out of "in training" status),
but for someone with a bunch of glowing references I would
probably relax that as well. One of the best writers I ever had
was completely OTJ-trained and originally started as an office
admin/manager typing stuff for engineers.
