tekom Certification on Two Levels

With its new certification system in accordance with DIN EN ISO/IEC 17024, tekom now offers technical communicator certifications at two different certification levels.

The goal is to offer the appropriate certification for every career changer with a different professional background and experienced technical communicators without formal training in technical communication. Graduates from the field of technical communication are not the target audience for certification. Graduates from other fields such as linguistics, mechanical engineering, medical technology, etc. can be certified.
