What The Editing Academy Offers

Here at The Editing Academy, we're all about helping you build a solid foundation for a career in proofreading and copyediting. That's why we offer one master course that teaches two skill sets.

We also teach industry knowledge and strategies to launch and market your business like a pro. The course is self-paced and each student receives lifetime access to the course, including any updates.

Just as importantly, we actually teach the grammar and punctuation lessons with interactive video lectures. You don't have to teach yourself!

We teach proofreading and copyediting in the same course so you can have a leg up on the competition. More jobs are available for people with copyediting skills in addition to proofreading—and they pay better.

You can choose to complete the evaluation test at the end of the course (included at no extra cost!). When you pass the test successfully, you'll receive a certificate of excellence from The Editing Academy to prove you're ready to be hired.

In this free minicourse, Editing for Beginners, you'll learn about what it means to be a proofreader and copyeditor, what you need to know to become one, and get a quick lesson about some basic grammar rules.

You'll be ready to jump into the master course when you're done!
