Professional Growth Technical Writing

Technical writing is a skill many IT/Networking professionals are called upon to use in their roles, but it is not often taught in engineering and technical schools. For the January NPA Public Webinar, we will explore the purpose of technical writing, how to approach a project, and explore tips and best practices for putting words on paper.
