Technical Report Writing

For Construction and Engineering Professionals


In all technical and engineering-related fields, there is a very real need for people to write reports that can be clearly understood by all the role-players, in order for the people and organizations concerned (including company employees, clients and anyone else who may be involved in the project or transaction), to make the best possible decisions. This is equally true for professionals in any technical sector, where it is often a challenge for people to transfer their assessments and findings to paper, and a challenge to present the report fluently and effectively. This is the prime objective of this course.

Who is For?

Construction Program Managers, Construction Project Managers, Construction Site Managers, Engineers, Architects, Quantity Surveyors, Principle agents, Consultants, Contractors, Client representatives, Project planners, Office administrators and Anybody involved in planning and managing construction projects will certainly benefit from attending this training webinar.

Course objectives:

  • This Technical Report Writing course aims to teach technical professionals how to write professional technical reports that can be understood by both technical and non-technical readers, ensuring the maximum impact for themselves and their businesses. The course begins by focusing on the foundations of language, starting with how to improve readability and understanding of the readers for the best results. It covers how to construct good sentences and paragraphs.
  • Once the language fundamentals have been covered, the course moves on to teaching technical professionals how to write in the technical domain, including how to write persuasively and for specific audiences to get the best results.
  • Writing great technical reports can be a significant challenge for many people, but presenting the report can be equally challenging. As a result, this course provides practical tips on how technical professionals can prepare professional presentations and engaging verbal presentations to their audiences.
  • The two-day course is highly interactive, with theory and practical activities given in step-by-step increments. Participants are provided with real first-hand practice throughout the course, allowing them to assess their own levels of competence and creating a strong desire to learn and participate in all the learning activities.
