Our Technical Writing course teaches business writers how to prepare letter reports and technical reports about subjects that require technical explanations, diagrams, charts, and jargon understood by technical readers.
The course contains assignments, practice activities, and written competency exams that teach you how to present technical information to technical readers so they understand the concepts and can apply them in their work.
Similar to how college classes work, you do your assigned work on your own, then submit it to your instructor, who grades, comments upon, and returns the assignment to you. The instructor will coach you in this way until you master the skills. FYI, your instructor is also available via email or phone.
