Society of Indexers Training in Indexing

The Society of Indexers runs an online distance learning course on indexing which consists of:

  • study notes on the principles of indexing

  • practice materials to aid understanding

  • group tutorials giving practice in index creation


The course is assessed by a series of tests and successful completion leads to Accreditation and Professional Membership of the Society. Find out more about the SI Training Course

Indexing Basics course

This short course, which I developed for the Society of Indexers, gives a good introduction to the basic principles and practices of good indexing. It includes a number of exercises which come with guidance answers and tutor support. It provides a good headstart to taking the main SI training course as well as giving the essentials to someone who just needs to learn some basic techniques. At the end of the tutorial you can opt for a Skype chat with the tutor on indexing as a career or to find out more about training.
