The Business Writing Trainers website at businesswriting.com offers 45 online business writing courses available either for individuals without organization sponsorship or for groups of trainees in an organization. Courses range from basic grammar to advanced training in writing grants, advertising copy, and audit reports. Three courses are self-training. The remaining courses are all led by instructors who guide trainees through the training, evaluate writing samples, coach the trainees, and certify their competence at the end.
The Business Writing Center presents writing workshops at company sites. The one-day Business Writing Skills workshop trains participants in the best practices the Center has identified that result in clear, understandable business documents. The instructor teaches the skills and works with participants to learn how to use the skills in their own business writing.
The workshop uses the Center's book, Explicit Business Writing: Best Practices for the Twenty-first Century. Particpants receive a copy so they have the resource to continue improving their writing after the workshop.
