Continuing Professional Development Seminars

Technical Writing Course

September 25th

Whether we like it or not, readers let their emotions about information presentation cloud their views about information content. Engineers are paid to think and use their expertise. Clients who pay big money for the engineer’s thoughts and expertise that are expressed in confusing and inconsistent reports really wonder if their money has been well spent. They may not be repeat customers.

This course assumes you know English grammar and syntax, so it doesn’t go there. Instead, it provides a much-more-useful toolbox of short techniques you can apply when designing an engineering document from the ground up or writing an engineering report using some existing document template. These techniques are designed to take your good ideas and present them better, and are based on observations from years of editing engineering documents. There are in-class exercises. Your “what-about?” questions and counterexamples are welcome.

When: September 25, 2019, 8:00AM-12:00PM
Where: Multi-Purpose Room, Kwanlin Dun Cultural Centre, Whitehorse, YT
Who Should Attend: Anyone involved in the preparation or review of technical documents which are used for decision-making purposes such as engineering reports, specifications, technical letters or similar.
