TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I'm a UK based technical author. I have no "relevant qualifications" in the
field as I have learnt everything I know by getting my hands dirty. I'd like
to get some sort of formal qualification and have been looking at the City &
Guilds Certificates in Technical Communication Techniques (5360-001) and
Technical Authorship (5360-002). Do any listers out there have any
experience of these courses or any open learning centres that offer them?
