2 New Certificates: Editing and Communications


4:48 PM Jul. 15, 2016 — by Vicki Krueger

We’ve got two new certificate programs to build your resume and boost your skills.

Each certificate covers the essential skills and best practices you need to succeed. And each Poynter program comes with the great teaching you've come to expect from the global leader in journalism training.

The Poynter-ACES Advanced Editing Certificate Training Package, developed with our partners at the American Copy Editors Society, builds on core skills of the current Poynter ACES Certificate in Editing. It combines live teaching and coaching from the pros at ACES with self-paced courses you can complete on your own schedule. Sign up by July 29 to save your seat.

In the Poynter Communications Professional Certificate, you'll learn to promote a brand using social media, and learn why it's important to write clear, SEO-friendly headlines. Are you a journalist looking to make the transition to marketing or public relations? The courses in this certificate emphasize putting skills you already have — writing, editing, storytelling — to work in new ways.
