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.
Dr. Robert Hogan, author of Explicit Business Writing: Best Practices for the Twenty-First Century, and experienced instructor for 38 years, teaches a one-day business writing workshop at company or agency sites. The workshop teaches the key skills business writers need to write clear
Participants receive a copy of Dr. Hogan's book to use as a desk reference that enables them to continue improving their writing after the workshop. The workshop is informative, interesting, and engaging.
