Why attend this course?

Change is happening

From the outside, you might think that technical writing changes little over time. If you’re involved in technical communication, you’ll know that’s far from the case. You’re expected to adapt to new technologies, working practices, work more efficiently, and be able to manage ever more complicated projects.

It can be scary and exciting:

  • Exciting because there are opportunities to lead and use your skills elsewhere in the organisation.
  • Scary because you might get passed by if you don’t have the right skills or the confidence to show others you can do this type of work.

This course helps you build on your core technical writing skills.

Training at a price you can afford

Classroom training can be expensive, especially when you take a range of classes. Here, you get access to a collection of online courses in technical communication, under a low cost, month-by-month plan.

You’re not tied in – you can cancel when you want.

Thank you for the fabulous course on Friday. I can’t wait to start implementing some of the new techniques.

Excellent over-view and will be useful for practical application. Much food for thought – useful for starting ideas on improving (the) existing approach to Help files.

Advanced technical writing & new trends in technical communication training

Thank you very much for an interesting and thought-provoking course. The content and themes are very relevant to Citrix Technical Publications as we regularly look at trends and how we can respond and innovate.

The way in which customers consume our content is changing, as are the different expectations customers have regarding user assistance and support. Your course provided further insight and ideas regarding how to review and adapt to ensure content is relevant and appealing to our customers.
