Oil and Gas Business Training > Micro Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) – The Essentials of Technical Report Writing

About this Micro Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT)

This Micro VILT presents an overview of Technical Report Writing. For inexperienced technical writers, it will give an insight into the basic concepts of report writing. For experienced writers, it will give them a chance to reassess how they approach their report writing tasks.

For both sets of writers, a consistent writing process is key to producing quality reports every time, and in an efficient manner. This Micro VILT will present a tried and tested writing process which participants can use to assess their current method of writing and, if necessary, change their way of completing their reports. Then participants will be asked to consider the value of templates before comparing generic report structures.

Finally, we will look at the final stages of the report writing task – in other words how to finish reports with concrete and clear Conclusions and Recommendations, before finally considering how to approach the writing of effective summaries, one of the most important parts of any report.

Learn what past participants have said about EnergyEdge training courses

As a non-technical writer, I still found this course incredibly useful. Within my department, I provide charts and various visual displays for reports but do not have much experience in writing the actual reports. The information I've learned in this course will definitely make me more of an asset for my team.
