Through our surveys and coaching experience,
Rose Hill, Inc., has learned that the #1 priority
of Technical Communicators is to stay current in
their skills - both technically and professionally.
So we've developed a series of teleclasses that
address both issues.

You learn from industry experts in an informal,
relaxed atmosphere. You don't even leave your home
or office. The teleclasses take place in virtual
space, courtesy of a telephone bridge line that
connects up to 28 learners in the same conversation,
at the same time.

In conjunction with the Willamette Valley STC
Chapter, Rose Hill and Lingo Systems are presenting
the following teleclasses on Language Localization.
Half of the profits from this series of classes will
go directly to the Willamette Valley Chapter of STC.
