Technical Writing Skills
Why are technical writing skills important?
Technical experts need to convey ideas to both technical and non-technical readers. The ability to convey these ideas is crucial to the decision-making and problem-solving in an organisation.

Excellent research and thorough investigations will be wasted if the findings are not documented clearly and accurately. This is where good technical writing skills are so necessary and important.

What do you gain from this two-day workshop?
This workshop discusses three important types of technical writing – technical reports, standard operating procedures (SOP), and PowerPoint slides for technical presentations.

You will learn the basic formats required for these documents, as well as the appropriate writing style and grammar to use, so that your writing can be interpreted in only one way – the way that you intend.

  1. Know the writing style requirements for technical reports and technical SOPs.
  2. Prepare effective PowerPoint slides for technical presentations.

  4. Structure sentences clearly and correctly.
  5. Create logical flow in your technical writing.
