Take the Editors Canada Foundational Skills Survey

Are you interested in an entry-level editing and communications credential for your staff? Editors Canada is looking at the feasibility of providing a new editorial designation for editors and communicators—a foundational skills editing credential.

Take a short 5 to 10 minute survey to let Editors Canada know what you think about the proposed credential!

This foundational credential would be a stepping stone toward Editors Canada’s professional certification program, now entering its eleventh year. Editors Canada certification sets objective standards for recognizing high levels of knowledge and skill, and those who are certified are capable of working independently to provide high-quality work.

For the new editorial designation, Editors Canada envisions a test of foundational skills that would assess candidates’ knowledge of the basics of editing and give them an entry-level credential to use on their resumés, as a marketing tool, and as a building block toward careers as professional editors or communicators. Those holding this credential would be able to work as editors or proofreaders with some supervision.

If your organization is based in Canada and employs editors or staff who perform editorial-type work, share your feedback via this brief survey. All responses will remain entirely confidential.

Plus, all organizations that participate in the survey will be entered for a chance to win a free Editors Canada webinar that you can share with your employees.
