Technical Writing Seminars from the American Management Association 

Want to improve technical writing at your company? Seminars are a good way to add extra training for your team, without having to do the teaching yourself.

The American Management Association is offering 17, 3-day intensive seminars in 2011 on technical writing for IT/computer personnel, engineers, scientists, and people in R&D, though anyone who has to handle or manage technical writing or technical writers will benefit.

Bring a current sample of technical writing to receive feedback on how to make it more effective.

These courses are also available online. For more information, go to http://www.amanet.org/training/seminars/Effective-Technical-Writing.aspx.
