STC is studying whether certification is feasible for technical
communicators and, if so, whether STC should be involved in running
the certification program.

We recently published a request for proposals (RFP) for research on
the feasibility question. Proposals are due in January and research
is to be completed by March 1998. Key questions to be answered by
the research are:

1. What is the current and future market strength of a
certification program?

2. What are the legal liabilities of a certification program?

3. What are the overall costs of designing, implementing, and
maintaining a certification program for technical communicators?

You can read the entire RFP at
