Different reader groups read the same documents; however, their level of understanding can vary greatly due to their experience and your way of writing. Want to help them understand your intent? You'll learn to create your documents (the writing and the layout on the screen/page) so they do just that. And in this training you'll be working with your own weekly reports, SOPs, system designs, inspection reports, etc so you get actual work done at the same time you're learning!
