37th TRSS Faculty Development Flight Launches Online Technical Writer Course > 37th Training Wing > Article View


JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-LACKLAND, Texas – The 37th Training Support Squadron is launching a new Community College of the Air Force-accredited online Technical Writer course this month, giving students the option to complete the 8-day course virtually rather than in residence, which allows them to be TDY on the spot.


The interactive e-learning course is designed to train staff in fundamental techniques for planning, writing, and editing technical training materials (eg, student learning materials). Students learn to research, collect, analyze, and organize relevant technical information for writing and editing documents such as instructions, student study guides, and training materials. Major topics covered include the fundamentals of technical writing; assess target audiences; select document format, use charts, tables, graphs and other graphical tools effectively, and write effective sentences and sections that present information clearly.


“The new course is an example of the 37th TRSS transforming the way we learn and accelerating change by providing learning professionals with access to continuing education opportunities through an online education platform from anywhere. where,” said Lt. Col. Korry Leverett, commander of the 37th TRSS.


The course’s interactive design includes various learning activities such as synchronous sessions, asynchronous discussions, knowledge checks using quizzes, videos and other media, individual projects and peer assessment.


Upon completion of the course, graduates earn four hours of CCAF credit and receive a digital Badgr credential in addition to their traditional paper-based certificate of completion.
