As manufactured products become increasingly sophisticated, there is a growing need for technical information to be presented in a form that is acceptable to both experts and lay people.
One of the most efficient ways of doing this is to use technical illustrations. Professional technical illustrators must prepare these illustrations. Technical illustration is the preparation of visual images to communicate factual information of any kind.

No specific educational requirements.
Formal training in technical illustrating is offered at the Heidelberg-based business, Curwen Communications Corporation. Although there are several organisations that offer training in Graphic Art and Fine Arts, this is the only organisation offering public training courses in Technical Illustrating.
The comprehensive training course comprises 3 modules, each of which runs for 2 weeks. Students have to do a practical examination at the end of each module.
