Other Information
This 80-hour course is delivered over 20
weeks. During this period, participants will
attend lectures to improve their writing skills
and help them understand and practice
technical writing. With the help of an industry
expert acting as project advisor, participants
will work on their own technical projects and
write a report describing their achievements
and results.
Those seeking CET certification will be
matched with a technical advisor who is a
professional in the field, to assist in developing
their project ideas. The advisor will guide the
CET applicants through the project stages. At
the same time, a technical writing instructor
will assist applicants with the formatting and
editing of their technical reports. After their
report is completed and accepted by the
course coordinator, applicants can present a
bound copy of the report to CTTAM as part of
their applications for certification as a CET in

This course is specifically tailored for
participants who are seeking registration with
professional organizations such as the Certified
Technicians and Technologists Association of
Manitoba (CTTAM). It is designed to help with
application processes, which in most cases
require the submission of a technical report.
Participants will submit their printed and bound
technical reports to the academic department;
however, participants who are seeking Certified
Engineering Technology (CET) certification will
have their reports reviewed by a CTTAM panel.
This course will begin with improving English
writing skills. Culture affects writing, and many
will have to learn to adopt the North American
style of report writing. Lessons in the first half
of the course will be based on what participants
need to know “up front” about report writing.
These points are discussed during the synopsis preparation stage and prior to the 10-week
report-writing module because more time is
available in the first half of the course, when participants are working on their two-page synopses.
Each synopsis will be reviewed for its technical
content and assessed for its potential for
producing a Technologist-level technical report.
Participants who do not have the technical
experience for an acceptable topic may opt to
provide content for their technical report. Each
participant will be assessed on their improvement in technical report writing skills as well as
the technical content of their project.
Improve your English writing skills and learn
the North American style of report writing.
