I believe that Andrew is speaking about technical consultants who can't
write well, and not technical writing consultants. You can't replace a
computer security specialist with a technical writer. That said, I'm sure
it's hard to find computer security specialists that are also good writers.

Andrew: there may be some good distance learning opportunities, though I
haven't had time to look them up. I've seen listings for courses on teaching
engineers to write.Check with PCC and PSU as well. I've worked at companies
in the Portland area before who contracted with PSU to provide focused
on-site training. In my case, a PSU professor created a customized class in
instructional design and came to our company once a week for two months to
deliver the training. I don't know about any of the costs involved, though.

Good luck.
