In my experience, good technical writers can often become good curriculum
developers. That is, they can learn to create good training materials.
Again, in my experience, very few technical writers make good trainers. For
presenting technical training, you really want someone who is a trainer, not
a technical writer. (Just to even the balance here, I'll add that, in my
experience, very few technical trainers are actually good at developing
curriculum and training materials.)

Dunno. You might try a search engine.
