History of Techwriter-Certification Technical Writing Courses & Certificates


Dr. Kenneth Rainey (http://archive.stc.org/recog/ken-rainey-award.asp ) and Dr. Reid originally developed online technical writing courses that were taught at their respective institutions in Georgia. They were borne out of credit side programs offered at Southern Polytechnic State University (http://spsu.edu ) From those efforts, Dr. Rainey and Dr. Reid developed additional courses of study, with the same rigor but targeted at the workforce. These formed the back bone of the technical writing programs that followed. In recent years JER Online, the parent company of Techwriter-Certification has engaged a Technical Writer from Microsoft to create the Certificate in Professional Technical Communication. These courses can be offered as both credit or non-credit or in a hybrid format. JER Online is a long standing member of the Society of Technical Communication and has received favorable review by local chapters regarding our technical writing courses and classes.
