This course was one of the best if not the best that I have participated in. I have been using the skills that I learned and truly believe that they make a difference.

The big picture came at the end of day one when [the trainer] stated we would have a revelation…..I did. Using the functionality of MS Word and proofing, I was able to view the condition of my documents….passive voice, readability, reading level, etc. Let’s just say that my documents were not in as good of shape as I originally thought!

The hands on training for technical writing was beneficial. This gave me an opportunity to actually work on our documents which we are using/revising on daily basis. This helped me understand where and when to use those skills learned in this course.
