High performing facilities recognize the importance of having formal training and certification programs to ensure procedure writers have the necessary skill set to provide highly reliable and technically accurate procedures.

The Procedure Writer Training and Certification Program is a 3 ½ day course that targets industry procedure writers of any experience level. It provides the key knowledge needed to consistently produce quality, reliable, and usable procedures. The course addresses all the major components of a quality procedure: format and content, human factor engineering, and human performance error precursor elimination.
