Changes to our online technical communication training courses

We’ve made a few changes to our online training courses, to make it easier to order and understand. There are now just three online courses:

We’ve moved all the other courses we had previously into a single, advanced technical communication skills course. The advanced course contains ten online modules in technical communication, and also it replaces our WriteLessons bundle.

The end user documentation writing skills for developers course is a version of our Technical Author/technical writing course.

The Technical Author/technical writing course hasn’t changed, and the classroom courses also haven’t changed.

New training course – Writing skills for developers

Today, we’ve released our latest training course – Writing skills for developers. The course teaches developers the key skills of technical writing for software user documentation.

Although it would be better for a professional technical communicator to write the end user documentation, for some organisations, this isn’t always possible.

It is for developers who:

  • Need a solid understanding of the fundamentals of technical writing
  • Want to communicate more clearly and effectively
  • What to know how little, or how much, they should write
  • Want people to answer their own Support questions

The course comprises 14 modules in total, which delegates can complete at your own pace. The course modules are delivered over the Web in small, manageable video presentations. The course handouts and exercises are downloadable as Word or PDF files.

We can also deliver this course as a classroom course for development teams.
