Remember: It’s important to distinguish between certification and a certificate. Certification indicates proficiency; a certificate indicates training but not necessarily expertise or proficiency.

Enjoy!

    Thanks for the roundup. What does the computer screen mean? Because I know the Editors Canada testing is on a computer, but it has to be done in person. It is not available remotely.

      Thanks for commenting, Adrienne! There is a legend at the top—it means online or by computer. I did discover in the course of my research that the Editors Canada testing cannot be done remotely, so I tried to make that distinction clear. Hope that helps!

    Hi Denise – you could also include the accreditation program offered by the Institute of Professional Editors in Australia: http://iped-editors.org/Accreditation.aspx

      Hi Ravi,

      Thanks for your suggestion. Maybe I’ll do another write-up someday. For now, though, I am considering this blog series finished since I only had so much space in the graphic and only so much time to research all the programs out there. Thanks for commenting!

    This is an invaluable reference. I’m working on a training course for aspiring book editors and I haven’t been able to find all this information in one place and so clearly presented. Thank you!
