The Grammar for Professionals course targets the most common and serious errors in workplace writing. This course uses a sentence-composing approach to grammar. Instead of learning rules in isolation, participants use them right away in their own writing. Grammar for Professionals helps participants write complete, correct, and clear sentences; use parallel structure; and avoid sentence errors. They also review punctuation, capitalization, and commonly confused words—and much more.

You can provide as much or as little oversight as you wish. Track participants' scores on pre- and post-assessments, review their quizzes and activities, or drill down to individual responses. You can also brand this course with your own title, organization name, and logo, which appear on participant materials and the final certification for 1.5 CEUs.
