Certification

Thank you for your interest in, and support of, the Certified Professional Technical WriterTM and Certified Professional Technical CommunicatorTM programs. After two years of accepting applications, assessing packages, and gaining experience administering the certification programs, the STC Certification Commission is temporarily suspending new applications for both Certified Professional Technical WriterTM and Certified Professional Technical CommunicatorTM. The STCCC is taking this step to allow it time to refine its processes and evaluate its certification requirements to better serve our members.

This change affects new applicants only. Those who have already applied for either certification should continue to assemble their packages. Submitted packages will be assessed per the new batch processing schedule. Those already certified may complete their continuing education requirements and recertify. See the Next Steps page for information on how to proceed with your application, or the Maintenance page for information on how to maintain your certification.
