Anyone with any type of background can work as an accountant, and many do...
However, the difference between an accountant and a Certified Public Accountant
is the CPA test, which is more a test of theory and knowledge about the
applicable laws and government tax and audit regulations than an individual's
ability to use them well. To equate it to technical writing would be to ask
TWs to display their understanding of ISO 9000 and whatever laws are applicable
to errors and omissions and the like.

This has been one man's opinion, yours may vary with mileage.
