Kennesaw State University in Atlanta, GA is developing a program of
certification. They are requiring three or four courses in tech writing
which are offered via internet. The final requirements are yet final,
but they will have their program set up around Jan 1999. The first
course, So You Want to be a Tech Writer" introduces the field. The
second, Intermediate Writing-On-line Documentation, speaks for itself.
The third class will be offered next year and hasn't been announced.
Once the courses are complete, they will offer a certification. For
