Certification Class

Prepare for the RWA Certification process to be awarded the Professional Certified Resume Writer status.

Resume Writers Australia has established a credible registration and certification system.

Our certification is a defining award in the resume writing profession that:  

Elevates the status and esteem of resume writers in the community; 

Provides members of the public with greater confidence when investing in resume writing services by knowing that RWA certified writers have been independently assessed and certified; 

Provides incentives for resume writers to work together as a community, rather than compete, in attaining high professional standards and establishing industry standards contributes to the building of, and maintenance of, expertise and knowledge in the industry supports resume writers in their work through establishing a code of conduct and professional standards upon which they will base their work 

First I want to explain what this is NOT: 

This is not a career counselling course or qualification. 
This will not marry up to your other professional registrations. 
This is not an all-of-the-possible-services-you-could-offer-as-a-career-professional-or-resume-writer certification.

What this IS: 
This is about the RESUME itself.
This is the chance to DEMONSTRATE your CAPABILITY in writing this ONE TYPE OF DOCUMENT.  

It’s just one document, right? So what is the big deal? Why a certification process for this?  

Because: We are resume writers.  We write RESUMES.  
This one document is our bread and butter. 

This one document can be the difference between delivering a professional job, or a copy + paste exercise. 

This certification is a benchmark to demonstrate that you know how to write a professional resume for the Australian market. 

This is what you want to validate your capability. This is what you need to show your clients who you are as a writer. 

This certification with YOUR NAME on it demonstrates that YOU are the REAL DEAL.  

You are NOT another cowboy with a laptop and a template.  You are a professional resume writer.  

You are a RWA certified resume writer, with a proven ability to deliver high quality resume documents for Australian job seekers.  

And you can prove it with this process.

Check out the requirements and guidance in preparation for the RWA Certification process through this Certification Class.



This certification is designed to award writers who have demonstrated their ability to create and deliver professional standard resumes for the Australian market. Based on Australian industry trends, this certification forms a minimum standard for professionals. If you are writing resumes as part of your business service, you can apply for this certification.

This is a certification, not an accreditation. An accredited course has been approved by the Australian Skills Quality Authority. Given that the resume writing industry in Australia is currently unregulated, this certification enables us to provide a standard to our market that they can trust. There are no 'accredited' resume writing courses in Australia.

Of course you can! This Certification Class is designed to give you insight and instruction as to how to do this. You may view this and realise that it is not part of your business plan, or you may feel you need more time serving in this space before you can meet the requirements. As always, if you have questions you can pop an email to certify@resumewritersaustralia.com.au.
