"Exceptional Technical Writing" Course

Simplify complex concepts in our technical writing course, "Exceptional Technical Writing."

Our Courses are Customized for Your Team.

Have you ever tried to read a technical document, scratched your head, and thought, “Why doesn’t this make sense?” That’s bad technical writing, and it’s pretty useless — technically speaking. Whether the issue is wordiness (a common problem), a lack of focus, or that it isn't concise, poor technical writing doesn't do anyone any good and it certainly can cast a shadow on your team's great work. 

The problem is that many professionals who write technical documents often neglect the reader and don’t consider how the information will be used and/or what the reader needs and is looking for. In addition, the documents are often wordy, redundant, and don't clearly drive the conclusion. Whether your team writes user manuals, technical reports, SOPs, or other types of technical documents, our customized Exceptional Technical Writing Course is designed to teach your team the research-based strategies they need to focus on their audience and deliver clear, concise, and targeted information that’s actually useful.

Equip Your Team to Write Technical Documents

Show Transcript

If your team writes user manuals, SOPs, deviation reports, instructions, policies, procedures, or really any variety of documents that people must use in their work, they're writing technical documents. The one overwhelming question that we have to start asking is: how well prepared is your team to actually write them?

Too often, writers faced with creating these types of documents either lack the expertise, or they've never been taught how to write them, or even how to write them well. So consequently, what happens then? The documents miss the mark. They're unusable. They're unclear. They're confusing. They're often unfocused. But there's good news. The good news is your team can actually learn how to write better technical documents that are concise, precise, targeted, and ultimately, the goal is, usable.

In our workshop, Exceptional Technical Writing, our team was going to learn research-based strategies that will help them plan, write, and revise a variety of technical documents. Our technical writing courses are offered as an online and even as a customized instructor-led onsite webinar and virtual classes. Contact us today and we'll be able to put together a customized solution for your team www.HurleyWrite.com, or call us.
