TECHNICAL WRITING CERTIFICATE



This program prepares the adult learner for a career as a technical writer and communicator in a variety of fields. It provides participants with advanced writing and communication skills to clearly and precisely convey technical information to a specific audience. While technical writing overlaps other genres of writing, mainly, business writing, what separates it from other types is that its over-arching goal is to simplify complex information for an external intended audience. Further, the sphere of technical writing focuses on technology, engineering, various reports, formal and informal proposals, analyses and other reader-useful correspondences. In fact, technical writing and technology work in tandem to write clear, concise, reader-centered instruction manuals. Because technical writers, including editors and proofreaders, are in high demand-given the growing need for coherent, fluent professional writing-a certificate in technical writing will assuredly open many career doors of opportunities; indeed, the TWCP is a prolific certificate worth pursuing.

  • Technical Writing Introduction

Total Program Cost: $2003* (Includes $50.00 Certificate Fee)
