Technical Writing

Who writes all those technical manuals, instructions, user guides, and websites? Technical writers are the professional people responsible for creating and maintaining all documents for corporations and organizations. If you are looking for a new career, want to develop your writing skills, or are just interested in learning how to produce quality technical documents, consider the Humber College Technical Writing Certificate program.

Each Humber Technical Writing course is taught by a senior-level technical writer who knows what is expected in the field. Throughout the program you are guided from a basic to expert writing level. Documentation and material produced by technical writers include: technical articles, document copywriting, administrative guides, presentations, internet support sites and website content, policy procedures, manuals, training material, user guides, and more.

Course expectations
To meet assignment and quiz deadlines, each course in the online program has a Critical Path agenda. You work at your own pace during the week and may be required to participate in a weekly one hour, live chat session on the specified date (held in the evening). This information is posted on the first day of class. In addition to the online discussions, emails, and readings, you must be prepared to spend six to nine hours per week on homework, assignments, and learning materials.

The Technical Writing Certificate program is offered entirely online through Humber’s Learning Management system, Blackboard 9.1. The Humber Blackboard course link is The Blackboard Learn 9.1 - Student Help is found at- Blackboard Learn 9.1.
