The new Editors Canada certification study guides are here!

You asked and we delivered! This year marks the first time the Editors Canada professional certification tests will be offered on computer. We’ve been working for years to create tests that are as close to the “real-world” editing experience as possible, while still maintaining that gold standard of excellence our program is known for.

Is this the year you’ll add your name to the list of trail-blazing certified editors?

The path to excellence just got smoother 

Copy Editing Test Preparation Guide by the Editors' Association of Canada

If you want to be certification-ready, you’ll need the most current prep tools available. Editors Canada’s new test preparation guides are the go-to resources for anyone who wants to become a certified editor. They’re based on the latest Professional Editorial Standards and are designed for the new computer testing platform for Editors Canada professional certification.

What’s inside?

Each volume of the test preparation guides contains useful information to help you get ready for professional certification. You’ll also get a practice test (Microsoft Word format), an answer key, a marking sheet, and two sample tests—a passing test and a failing test—so you can compare your answers and see how you do.
