If you’re new to the Tech Comm field, or simply need a refresher on technical communication and writing skills, then these two foundation-level online courses are for you!

Join Leah Guren in TechComm 101, beginning on 24 January through 7 March (Tuesdays) at 11:00 AM-12:30 EST (GMT-5) to jump-start your tech comm career. Attendees will learn the role of the technical communicator, identify how technical writing differs from other kinds of writing, how to target their audience, and how to apply key theory for technical communication work.

Similarly, if you need to brush up on your writing and editing skills, then join Li-At Rathbun in Technical Editing Foundations. This online course runs from 8 February through 15 March (Wednesdays) at 10:00-11:00 AM EST (GMT-5). Attendees will learn what technical editors are and why they’re needed, the “hard skills” and “soft skills” that technical editors should possess, and how to identify passive voice and bloated sentences, as well how to fix them. Don’t let these online courses pass you by. Register now!
