This course is once again sold out. If you had plans of joining but weren’t able to register before we sold out, check out the third run of this course on September 25.

Due to insistent public demand, we are pleased to offer a rerun of our technical-writing certification course on National Heroes Day.

Communicating technical information to a non-technical audience can be challenging.

Oftentimes, technical people are so passionate and close to their subject that they lose sight of who will read what they have written and what their level of knowledge is.

This technical-writing course is aimed specifically at bridging that communication gap.

This course concentrates on the principles and processes involved in communicating technical information effectively.

This online course will be conducted via Zoom.
