A wide range of education and training courses is available in Western Australia as well as other parts of the country for those who want to become editors. Many courses are available online so geographical location is less important than it once was. School leavers can undertake an undergraduate degree with a major or minor in editing; however, skills and knowledge may also be acquired from a major in English or writing, which are much more widely available. Those who are changing careers should consider a postgraduate degree or short course.
