Technical Writing: Going beyond the Basics

Loading Events
This event has passed.

Due to the tremendous success of the first three runs of our hugely popular technical-writing class, we have decided to add another schedule in October.

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 master class is aimed specifically at bridging that communication gap.

This class, which will be conducted via Zoom, concentrates on the principles and processes involved in communicating technical information effectively.

The class comes with a free pretraining assessment. Taking the assessment is optional, but we highly suggest you take the time to answer it.

Those who will attend will be given a certificate of attendance. Those who can complete the post-training assessment will be awarded a certificate of completion.
