Hi Natasha --
Have you considered UCLA's online courses? Their website is
www.onlinelearning.net, and they have several technical communication
courses which can lead to certification (whatever that means) in tech
I am also just starting out as a technical writer, after 20 years of
engineering. Though I've gravitated to writing all that time, some formal
education seems in order. I don't know how good the UCLA classes are but
I'll know soon, because I'm scheduled to take one (Technical Writing)
starting next month!
