tekom-accredited Training Programs

High level of education and current practice-oriented content

tekom awards the "tekom-accredited educational program" seal of accreditation to technical writer training programs that fulfill tekom's requirements and quality standards.

A tekom-accredited training program has various advantages for participants:

  1. Close cooperation between tekom and the training provider ensures the standard and a high quality of training.
  2. Training content is practically oriented to business-relevant requirements.
  3. Training content is up to date: The tekom competence framework is updated by tekom at regular intervals as the basis for training.
  4. Participants in tekom-accredited training programs can become certified independent of individual admission prerequisites and obtain, with the tekom certificate "Technical Communicator (tekom)", formal verification of their high qualification. The tekom certificate is internationally recognized by management employees.
  5. Participants in tekom-accredited training programs receive free membership in tekom for the duration of their training and can take advantage of all tekom member services, such as for example the professional journal "technical communication".

The various tekom-accredited training programs are accredited on the Professional Level and/or Expert Level for certification, depending on content and duration. Participants in a training program that is only accredited for the Professional Level, however, have the option under certain conditions to take the more challenging Expert Level certification examination. The details are set in the certification guidelines.
