David Dubin adds his 5 cents after postings by Andy and Victor. David states "At any rate, I do agree that the problems Andy and Victor faced are real
problems that could have been solved by certification on the TECHNOLOGY of our
discipline."

I don't agree....sure, it may help a little, but just like a BS in Technical Communications doesn't guarantee a wonderful tech writer, neither does a certificate. Victor has the right idea with an in-depth interview, writing samples, and "test" questions. If that doesn't tell you what you need to know, schedule a second interview with other writers in the group. The questions and discussions that result can be enlightening.
