Effective workplace writing communicates ideas to colleagues and clients. This course teaches proven strategies for explaining even complex topics. Participants discover how to persuade the most resistant readers, getting them to take positive action. This course also helps participants avoid embarrassing errors.

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 1.0 CEU.
