Learn how to take your expertise and turn it into clear, user-friendly technical writing.

This intensive, CPD-accredited course will help you communicate your messages concisely and effectively. You’ll learn how to plan, write and edit documentation, instructions or reports that express technical detail pitched at the right level for your audience.

We deliver the interactive course online using the latest web technology, so you can attend no matter where you are. All you need is a computer, a headset and stable internet access.

A key feature of this course is our unique pre-course writing analysis. This will ensure you know exactly how to apply the techniques you learn in order to make rapid improvements.

You’ll also get a year’s access to our comprehensive, CPD-accredited e-learning programme The complete business writer (normally £150). This consists of 52 interactive modules that will reinforce and build on the techniques you learn on the course day.

By the end of the training, you will know how to:

set clear objectives and profile your readers
build a logical structure into any technical document
make conclusions clear and memorable
communicate complex information effectively – without dumbing down
write for your readers, using an appropriate level of language
present data helpfully, making effective use of graphs, tables, charts and graphics
write confidently, with a clear understanding of grammar and punctuation
build credibility and authority through your writing.

If you want to learn how to plan, write and edit technical documents that are clear and useful for their end users, yes.
