Our courses are highly appreciated by the industry. Many times our students start getting job offers within 2-3 months of joining the course. Our students have been offered salaries upwards of Rs. 5, 00,000/- per annum. In fact, some of them got offers which were so lucrative that they left the course incomplete, affecting our ongoing assignments and reputation. This did not benefit the students either as they lost a unique training opportunity. They compromised their long-term prospects for the sake of their short-term gains. To safeguard against this, we started taking a security deposit or Bank Guarantee from the students. More than the money, the commitment that comes with it is important. Since this change it has been found that the student’s retention and satisfaction has gone up considerably.

Was this a shorter course earlier? If yes, why was the time duration increased?

Yes. The course duration was a 10 months seven years back. It was increased to 12 months four years back and was made 14 months in June 2007. There are many reasons for this.

  • This course in designed considering the industry’s needs. This need has changed a lot in last four to five years. As the profession of Technical Writing is becoming more stable and matured, the industry now expects a lot more than technical writers then what it did seven or four years back. So the scope of work has increased and also the skills required.
  • The number of hours of classroom training and number of assignments have been increased. In the new course model the students will spend more than a month on classroom training and assignments, before they are ready to work on the real life assignments.
  • The course contents have been made more exhaustive. The latest tools and have been included in the course. Also the subject ‘Technical Writing Project Management” is newly added and it makes the course more comprehensive. Improvements like this have increased the learning time.
  • The course itself has matured based on Technowrites’s rich experience of seven years. The number of assignments is now increased to more than 25. Based on this there is a corresponding increase in the review and feedback sessions as well.

We trust that the new course model is ready for the needs of the industry and at the same time gives a much better justice to all the aspects of a successful technical writing career. webworks training, technical writing india, technical writing consultancy pune
