A Million Times Better Than Coursera
Bobby’s technical writing course is top notch. I took it alongside Coursera’s technical writing course and, without a doubt, Bobby’s instruction, availability, and clever assignments are a million times better. In addition to covering technical writing itself, he provides instruction on several helpful modules that are hard to find elsewhere, covering things like marketing and interviewing. But perhaps the best thing about the course is Bobby’s generosity with his time. In addition to course material, he facilitates many one-on-one meetings, class meetings, and is overall very eager to answer all sorts of questions. 10/10 would recommend.

Good for Experienced Writers, Too
I enrolled in BTW's Tech Writing Jump School after working 2 years as a tech writer.
Although I had relevant professional experience, I was hoping to maybe learn a handy tool or two, fill any gaps in my current knowledge with advice from an experienced tech writer, learn more about how to market my skills in the freelancing world, and get some experience with remote, international interviews.
I'm glad to share that the course fulfilled my expectations completely and I feel ready to kickstart my freelancing career in tech writing from Eastern Europe.
Bobby provided some extremely helpful suggestions and is still incredibly responsive whenever I have any questions. I'm really grateful for this experience! Can't recommend this course more. I hope this testimonial helps you decide.

I've found the course very helpful for two primary reasons. Firstly, it has shown me that the bar to entering that the field of tech writing is not as high as I'd imagined and that I do not need to go get an expensive degree or certificate from a college/university. The portfolio that I'm building during the course and some additional work along the same lines should be enough to get a break into the industry.
Secondly, and more importantly, I have access to Bobby's decades of industry experience. I feel that alone is worth the fee! Bobby is extremely helpful and speaking to him in person both on a one-on-one basis and through group discussions has been invaluable. I've learned more in the past few weeks than I did after months of reading various online forums.
Another highlight has been interacting with the other course takers. We had done a through a round of mock interviews, where we (and Bobby) interviewed each other for tech writing jobs. As someone who hadn't done this in a long time, I found the exercise highly informative and beneficial.
