The Technical Report Writing course will teach you how to prepare technical writing about subjects that require technical explanations, analyses, data presentation, and information understood by technical readers. This technical writing course teaches the business writer how to present information to technical readers so they understand the concepts and can apply them in their work. The course is not intended to explain technical subjects to non-technical readers. The Business Writing Skills course and Writing Technical Explanations for Non-technical Readers course teach the skills required to explain any concepts to non-technical readers using clear, straightforward, simple explanations.

The online technical writing lessons contain clear explanations and many examples. You go at your own pace and submit assignments when you are ready. The instructor evaluates the activities and examinations, comments on skills you have learned and skills you still need polish, coaches you through learning the skills, and certifies your competence. You receive a Technical Report Writing course graduation certificate at the end of the course.

Course Time

You will go through the Technical Report Writing course at your own pace, so you could complete it within a few weeks. However, you have up to four months to complete the course so you can fit the study time into your schedule. All technical writing lessons must be finished within the four-month period.
