Field of Study
Ever wonder who writes all those technical articles, sets of instructions, training manuals and websites? Technical writers are the people who are responsible for these and many other types of documents produced by organizations. If you are looking for a new career, want to develop your writing skills or if you are just interested in producing technical documents, consider enrolling in the 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.
The Technical Writing Certificate program is offered entirely online through Humber's Learning Management system, Blackboard 9.1. The Humber Blackboard course link is learn.humber.ca
TWRT 201 is a pre-requisite for all the courses and must be taken first.
Refer to Learning Resources section under Course Outline for textbook information.
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.
Once you have successfully completed all the required courses in this program, contact us at email@example.com to request your Humber certificate. Please include your first and last name, student number, program title and current mailing address in your email.
