Often engineers, scientists, and managers must write reports to provide the results of their research, field work, and other activities to others within their organizations. All too often, the quality of the work itself is judged by the quality of the written report. Many technical reports have specific templates to use to provide a structure to the information; however, within each major section of a report, the information must be clearly presented and logically formatted.
This seminar reviews the basic types of technical reports and includes opportunities for participants to improve their writing skills by hands-on exercises.
If you have ever dreaded writing a report, this one-day seminar is designed for you. By following a progression of steps, you will learn how to gather the necessary information, organize the various elements, write a rough draft, make any revisions, and produce a polished final copy.
