This three-day hands-on course is aimed at developers who need to understand RoboHelp from the basic level to some of the more advanced features, and quickly get up to speed on how to use them.


 
Course Outline
RoboHelp is one of the most senior help authoring tools, having first appeared in 1991.  It's also an extremely powerful tool and still one of the most widely used.

You can use RoboHelp without being formally trained on it.  Many authors do.  But without formal training, you may not understand why some things go wrong, or why you do the things you do (aside from the fact that your predecessor told you to). But if you understand how, and why, to use RoboHelp's features, you'll be able to use it more effectively, more efficiently, and you'll get to that point more quickly.
