How does the online version work?

You’re busy. You want to improve your writing at work, but prefer learning at your own pace. And you want easy to access online modules you can refer back to in the future.

This online self-paced course in Professional Business Writing is designed for busy professionals who want the convenience of learning from anywhere. Maybe you’re a frequent traveller, or you can’t commit to a day in the classroom. You’ll be covering the exact same valuable content in our popular classroom course.

In the online version, each module is bite-sized, so you can fit in your learning in between your other commitments. And you can easily come back to where you have left off. You’ll also have access to the course for 12 months – giving you plenty of time to complete (or revisit) it. Online Knowledge Tests have been provided after each module to test your new skills.

Bonus: The Australian Business Style Guide
As part of this course, you will also receive a copy of the Australian Writers’ Centre’s Australian Business Style Guide (valued at $49). (Online participants receive access to the online version.) This is an excellent ready-reference for day-to-day questions regarding style and grammar – created specifically for Australian workplaces.


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: Why is there a price difference between the classroom and online courses?
A: Both the classroom and online course cover the same world-class content, but as we are not providing a venue or presenter for the online version, we are able to offer it for a different price. You will have access to online content for 12 months, to learn at your own pace.

Q: I work in customer service or support roles dealing with emails, letters and shorter correspondence. Is this the course for me?
A: Our Workplace Writing Workshop 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.
