The Global Association for Software Quality (GASQ) is launching online certification for the ITCQF® Certified Technical Communication Professional scheme.
The cooperation between ITCQF® and GASQ was established 5 years ago, and we have certified many technical writers together. Back when we started our cooperation Werner Henschelchen, General Manager at GASQ, said something that is even more relevant today: “Technical communication is becoming a more and more important part of the business across the world, and GASQ recognizes the growing market demand for a certification program in this field. We are happy that ITCQF® – a leading organization providing high-quality training and examination for techcomm – is now our partner and we can cooperate to address the needs of the field’s specialists and organizations worldwide.”
Dawid Górny, President at ITCQF®: “We are proud about this cooperation. GASQ is a trustworthy partner with a global presence, and I believe that introducing this new form of exams is a step into the new reality. Especially in times of the pandemic we all come to realize the importance of delivering products to our customers via the Internet to allow acquiring and developing competences. I am convinced that we will be successful in delivering our certificates in an easier and more approachable way to a wider range of people. As a result, we aim to take technical communication the next level of professionalism, and to further promote unified industry standards.”
The Global Association for Software Quality, abbreviated GASQ, is an independent, international association for the common good that pursues the objective of promoting the quality of software used in research, teaching professions and by the industry. The founding members of GASQ hail from Europe, America and Asia. As a leading organization in the software quality sector, GASQ maintains an international network and supports certification programs, e.g. for software testers, requirements engineering experts and usability professionals. At the same time, GASQ through its GASQ Service GmbH offers services for associations and groups advocating for software quality. Through all of its activities, GASQ strives to make it its core responsibility to increase awareness of the importance of good software quality and of highly qualified staff and businesses in this sector.
The International Technical Communication Qualifications Foundation (ITCQF®) is a comprehensive technical communication certification program developed in cooperation with recognized techcomm experts, and based on existing international standards. The program is designed to facilitate the learning process for aspiring technical communicators, as well as to supplement and organize the knowledge of already experienced techcomm specialists. Ultimately, ITCQF® provides a means to standardize the terminology, processes and best practices used by professionals across the world in different organizations.
