About this course

The course prepares you to get skilled in the processes, standards, and tools knowledge required to start the career as a technical writer. The course also helps freshers as well as professional technical writers to face the workplace challenge of working in Agile implementing DDLC. The course concludes with a workshop on DITA and information about multiple other sub-domains or fields where technical writers can apply skills to grow in their career.

m YG Sneha Rajgopal
Fundamentals of Technical Writing course is a gateway to the world of authoring, reviewing and editing user documents using Agile and DITA methodologies.

The modules were very well articulated and explained in a simplified manner. Creating sample documents practically provided an insight to the trainees on the ways of working in the corporate world, and the usage of tools for creating the documents gave a hands on experience.

The trainers are very helpful and approachable. The webinars conducted by TWT was icing on the cake, it not only helped build the base as a Technical Writer but also gave a vision on how we can expand our horizons into other domains.
m Raman Kumar Pathak
Overall experience is beyond my expectation. Guidelines given by trainers (Punit and Amandeep)were amazing.

If you want to uplift or polish your tech writing skills from basic, it’s my personal suggestion to join Tech Writer's Tribe.

Being new to the industry I really enjoyed learning new course. It helped me in doing more assignment on my own.
Pallavi Gubba

I was very satisfied with the course content, right from introduction to learning tools. This course helped to upskill my career as a technical writer.
m Anitha S Rao
I have attended many courses in TWT and all of them seem to be well planned and executed. It is evident that the trainers are knowledgable and that they have meticulously prepared the slides and study material (shared after the course).

Even though the trainings run for 2-3. hours, the trainer's energy level remains constant and they are eager to answer any query that comes their way. I wish all the very best to TWT in their endeavour to impart knowledge through such trainings!

This is one of the must have for those who are starting their career as a TW.

Even for an experienced professionals this training is a great refresher course. Lot of great things can be learnt.

Special thanks to Punit for setting up the training in a great manner.
m Mukul
When I came to know about this course, I was a little sceptical about enrolling as I do not have any technical background.
Still, I went ahead and enrolled. I have completed the course successfully, and now I can vouch for the usefulness of this course without any hesitation!
It covers all the basics of technical writing that can get you started with your career in this field.

Mr. Punit is an excellent teacher who monitors each and every student individually throughout the course, and gives feedback/advice as and when needed. All the sessions are very interactive and keep you engaged throughout.

The best part of the course is the sample guides that you prepare as assignments. These guides can be used as sample work to apply for jobs, which is particularly useful for freshers like me.

If you're looking for a career in technical writing, or want to improve your skills as a technical writer, then this is the course for you!

(On DITA+Beyond Documentation)
It was a wonderful session and a great learning experience. I liked the way Pallavi presented giving specific examples to explain API; Subhajit's journey as a Conversation Designer; and Punit's way of presenting along with UI samples, kept the audience stay focused on the topic throughout.

The DITA workshop with Aman was very interactive and the trainer is very knowledgeable and has a stronghold on the topic. He was very patient and supportive in resolving the queries.
Sharadha Vishwanathan

Very useful to learn the basics of technical writing. DITA concepts, grammar, markdown editor, and many other useful topics were covered.
Priyadarshani Dora

Wonderful exposure for me as a beginner in DITA. The API segment was also very good.

UI/UX segment was very informative. Looking up for more such sessions.
