I haven’t been able to say anything about certification for quite a while now, but there’s news from STC. From president Kit Brown-Hoekstra’s mid-term status report, in the February 2015 Intercom magazine:
For the past year and a half, we have been working to restructure certification to improve scalability and ensure its financial stability. We are pleased to announce that we are partnering with an accreditation, certification, and examination body, APM Group (www.apmgroupltd.com), which specializes in certification schemes internationally. As part of this effort, we are also working to align our educational and conference offerings to the certification paths we are developing.
In the coming months, we will be introducing the revamped program, starting with a foundation-level certification. More information about the program will be communicated to all STC members and certified practitioners later this year.
