Because the interests and available jobs for technical communicators is so
varied, I think it would be good to have varying degrees of certification.
Writing skills, tools-related skills, and technical comprehension as well as
project management, people management, editing, and instructional design...
The possibilities seem endless, as is our field!!

>2. What would serve as the governing body for such a program?

Obviously STC should have huge say in this. I also think that educational
programs and corporate communicators should be involved in setting the

TECHWR-L List Information
To send a message about technical communication to 2500+ list readers,
E-mail to TECHWR-L -at- LISTSERV -dot- OKSTATE -dot- EDU -dot- Send administrative commands
ALL other questions or problems concerning the list
should go to the listowner, Eric Ray, at ejray -at- ionet -dot- net -dot-
