This two-day course is designed to help you develop skills that will enable you to produce clear and effective technical documents. We will focus on the basic principles of good writing which technical writing shares with other forms of writing and on types of documents common in technical fields and organizations. While the emphasis will be on writing of technical information, oral communication will also form an important component of the course as well.

Subjects include punctuation, grammar and research techniques, as well as the creation of title pages, tables of contents, format pages, glossaries and appendices.
