CTS through its CTWS certification provides support services, educational programs, public outreach and professional credentialing for the technical writing profession. The mission of the CTWS technical writing certification is to serve both the interests of the technical writing profession as well as that of the public.
The practice of technical writing is simply and most broadly “the profession of communicating technical information in easily understandable language.” Technical writing certification assures the public, institutions, and employers that a technical writer meets a measurable, comparable and third-party-verified standard of professional expertise.
