Q: I already have fairly good writing skills. WIll I learn anything new?
A: Absolutely. In fact, this course is built for those who are already fluent and confident in written and spoken English. We want to help elevate you from the pack – and with just a few simple tips and clear guidelines, you’ll do just that. Participants are amazed at how quickly they progress from “good” to “great” to produce cohesive, better documents.

Q: Will this course be relevant to my industry?
A: The skills taught in this course are relevant to all written communications. They’re also skills that you will last a lifetime – transferable across different industries.

Q: What resources do I get to take away with me?
A: As well as receiving your own copy of the excellent Australian Business Style Guide for free, you will also receive a comprehensive set of course notes, exercises, easy reference guides, and cheat sheets for troublesome areas (such as apostrophes!) that you can share with everyone in the office.

Q: I work in customer service or support roles dealing with emails, letters and shorter correspondence. Is this the course for me?
A: In that case, we recommend a different course. Our course in Business Writing Essentials is better suited to your needs. It covers some of the same areas, but is tailored to the type of communication that is more relevant to those roles.

It's a great course – compact yet comprehensive, great presenter and good pacing, professional and good value for money.

Great content, great structure, great teacher. And considering you could spend twice as much to get someone pretentious treating you like an infant, this is so worth it.
