Technical Writing Training

Writing is such an integral part of our daily lives that sometimes it’s easy to forget what it really is: writing is technology. It’s a tool humans invented to make impossible things possible. Like any tool, it takes practice and training to use it well.

Courses designed for life sciences and technology

Our open-access technical writing courses are tailored to the interests and concerns of today’s tech-comm industry professionals.

Life Sciences

Our Writing for Life Sciences training courses cover Corrective and Preventative Actions (CAPAs) and Nonconformance Reports (NCRs).

Technology

Our Writing for Technology training courses include in-depth explorations of Application Programming Interface (API) documentation and online help.

Who can benefit from a technical writing training course? The short answer is “everybody”.

Technical writing for life sciences and software

Our courses are optimised for people who work in the life sciences and technology sectors, but they are open to all. Life sciences and tech require precision and efficiency. Showing those qualities in your writing will make you stand out. The same diligence and skills are a big plus to employers in other sectors too. Writing ability is a selling point in any job.

How does my business benefit?

Trained writers produce content that can reduce service calls, reduce human error, and enhance your brand. When technical writing skills spread throughout an organisation, you can expect increases in efficiency, safety, and customer satisfaction, reductions in waste, and a right-first-time culture that reduces churn. Well ordered, reliable content also aids auditing and regulatory compliance.

Don’t just take our word for it

Probably the best two-day course I’ve been on. Extremely well run, packed with info. Tutors were engaging without making it seem forced. The lessons on grammar were amazing. The information was perfect for our needs, delivered by instructors who clearly had lots of knowledge. I loved it, thank you!
