Welcome to the new look website

There is still some work to do, but after much hard work and head scratching, the new look website is here. Most of the previous content is still available, although some of the pages may have moved, and we are still porting over that last of the legacy content.

ISTC Members

There is no longer a unique area for Members. When you login to the website all of the Members Only content is automatically available in the main menu on the left.

You can login using your existing credentials, and you can edit your own details by clicking your name in the bar at the top of the website.

If you find any issues, missing content, or broken links, please let me know.

Accredited Courses

The ISTC is pleased to announce that it has accredited two technical authoring courses. This means the materials have been through a thorough review process and that the ISTC is happy with both the quality of the materials and the content of the course. For more information see the List of Accredited Courses.
