Technical writing certifications are credentials given to candidates who successfully complete a technical writing course with the knowledge of what technical writing is, the prime principles and practices of technical writing, and their implementation. Unfortunately, there was a clear lack of bona fide technical writing certification for technical writers, especially when it came to providing vocational training on how to operate as a modern technical writer. To address this issue, Technical Writer HQ features the One Week TW (TW Certification) which provides all the theoretical TW knowledge, while also teaching how to create process docs, user manuals, write API documentation, and how to implement important writing techniques.
In the past, there was a clear lack of courses within the technical writing landscape, especially in terms of providing valuable vocational training and teaching candidates the techniques of the trade.
To address this knowledge shortfall, Technical Writer HQ created the One Week TW training course. This course has theoretical and practical modules that focus on developing fundamental technical writing skills in candidates while preparing them for a TW career.
One Week TW by Technical Writing HQ is a course that takes candidates through the basics of effective documentation writing for industries including software, medical, industrial, and general business. It is one of the leading resources for technical writer training.
Throughout this 7-day online course, candidates will learn how to become technical communicators to effectively communicate with product managers, project managers, and developers, while also overseeing a team of technical writers within their company.
In short, this course will teach you what it takes to become a TW professional and how to be successful in a technical writing career.
For top companies, the average yearly salary of a technical writer is $100,000.
The actual technical writing professional salary may differ from the average estimate above, based on factors such as the specific salary package at a company, the candidate’s level of experience, and their academic qualifications.
Technical writing professionals with technical writing course experience and certifications such as One Week Technical Writer usually have a greater chance to reach or exceed the national average salary.
