I can offer anecdotal evidence, based on a couple decades worth of experience
in Silicon Valley, that many technical writers are also expected to be able
to train folks, or at least provide the training material. There are a
significant number of companies here who do, in fact, have their own
training departments who develop their own material, but there are also a
number who regard all that "documentation stuff" as including training.
