I want to be a copyeditor
Start by taking some copyediting courses. Below are a few training program ideas, and if you become an ACES member, you can get a discount on some opportunities through us, including the Poynter copyediting certificate program.
We offer a few regional workshops a year, which we call “Editing Boot Camps.” It’s a chance to have a full day of learning editing, punctuation, grammar and more. It’s also a great chance to network with other editors at these boot camps. Check our site for our training opportunities.
OTHER NON-ACES TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES
UC San Diego offers a copyediting certificate. Classes are online.
Media Bistro offers courses as well, including copy editing.
Where can I get certified?
There is no recognized certification standard in the U.S. for copyediting.
