Training Course Syllabus:


Program Description:




Communicate technical information clearly and effectively in every document you write!


Technical writing is a high-stakes skill that allows you no margin for error



  • Your company’s breakthrough product is worthless if the user’s manual you wrote is confusing.

  • A technical report with grammar blunders can badly damage your organization’s credibility -- and your own.

  • Imprecise wording in step-by-step procedures you outlined can lead to accidents, injuries, or lawsuits.


Give your technical writing skills a major upgrade fast

Attempting to improve your technical writing skills by trial and error is simply too risky, which is why we’ve developed The Technical Writers’ Workshop.
This comprehensive two-day course shows you how to implement best practices, proven approaches and the latest techniques to produce highly effective, user-friendly technical documents. In addition, you’ll get guidelines, formats, and structures for all types of technical projects, from abstracts to technical proposals to specifications.
