Abstract : While it is obvious that a trainee technical editor needs to learn editorial skills and techniques, it is less obvious but not less important for the trainee to acquire certain attitudes in and toward his work as an editor. Viewpoints and work patterns that characterize experienced editors are used as a basis for formulating a series of concepts about the key elements in the training of an editorial apprentice. These concepts are discussed in terms of the development, in a tutorial-type on-the-job training environment, of attitudes and viewpoints that will increase the professional capabilities of the trainee.
