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.

Being asked to do more than originally hired for? Nah,
it never happens! *g*
Consider the following:
* if any writers oppose, and this seems to be the
case, voice the opposition objectively. You deserve to
be heard without detriment.
* ask for a written and approved job description, with
salary ajustment if necessary (will you be
traveling/required to dress more professionally/be
responsible for more things/etc...)
* Make certain your task as trainer is not piled onto
your workload in addition to your TW responsabilities
without lessening the TW responsabilities or
lengthening the project time for deliverables.
