The author once worked on a technical training course for a product line that had more than 315 different abbreviations associated with it. At first she didn't believe there could be that many -- until she sat down one day and counted all 13 pages of them. It is not uncommon for technical topics to have language of their own; in fact, this is part of what makes technical training development so special. Technical training is not easily classified. Whereas nontechnical content often can apply across the board, technical content is specialized to each topic. Although difficult to maneuver, technical training can be achieved. Here are a few tips that can help ease you along the way: 1. Find the right people. 2. Gain a broad perspective. 3. Make it interactive. 4. Make sure it has a point. 5. Keep up-to-date with changes in the business.
