HURRY  Bookings close soon for our next technical writing courses in Melbourne (Dec. 8–9), Brisbane (Dec. 10–11) and Perth (Dec. 15–16).


Writing courses

Our training division offers public and custom courses in technical writing and scientific writing. Custom courses can be delivered at our offices or yours. They can also be tailored to your particular needs.

Public courses are held in all major capital cities and run over two days. Custom courses can be held anywhere and run over one, two or three days.

Participants receive an extensive reference book, certificate and 30-days free email support (should they want any part of the course clarified).

Participants in our technical writing courses are also encouraged to submit their CV to our recruitment division if they wish to pursue a career in technical writing.

Writer-placement services

Abelard Consulting's recruitment division specialises in the placing of technical writers (also known as technical authors or technical communicators). We have been in the recruitment business for nearly two decades and, in that time, have amassed a huge database of CVs from technical writers Australia-wide.

Our service is unique in a number of ways, the most important of which is that applicants are filtered and interviewed by long-term practicising technical writers.

Our current contractors are working in many fields, including mining, petroleum refinery, robotic biosystems, network security systems, infrastructure security systems, commercial software products, banking systems and transport maintenance.


Documentation services

Abelard Consulting provides the full spectrum of documentation services: from editing a single document written by others to managing fully out-sourced project teams writing user documentation of many types, in many media, and in many languages.

We design, write, edit and index user guides, quick start guides, online help, service manuals and many other types of technical document.
