Summary

This LIVE, virtual workshop provides you with the knowledge and skills to become a better technical writer — and to write documents that are clear, easy to understand and interesting to your audience.

Workshop Description/Agenda

Technical documents are designed to communicate important — often complex — information to someone who needs to know. That may be a challenge if the audience doesn’t share the writer’s knowledge, experience or training. In addition, if a document is vague, disorganized or wordy, it can easily create confusion. And any lack of clarity or chance of misinterpretation could lead to an undesirable outcome.

This LIVE, virtual workshop provides you with the knowledge and skills to become a better technical writer — and to write documents that are clear, easy to understand and interesting to your audience.

By eliminating common mistakes like nonsensical jargon, word clutter and weak organization, you’ll be able to present technical information directly to your audience with confidence that they will understand. Just as important, this course will help you simplify and streamline the process of writing so you can get the job accomplished with maximum polish and professionalism.
