The course is for anyone who writes to achieve professional objectives. You’ll get immediate benefit from this course if you:

  • maintain regulatory and compliance rules
  • interact with customers
  • communicate regularly using email and other business documents.

Shirley — from a New Zealand Crown Research Institute

“Even though I have been working for many years and have experience of appropriate use of communicating (emails, letters etc), the course made me look at things from a different perspective and reconsider some of the ways communication can be interpreted and used more effectively. It was great to have the workbook and be able to work at it at your own pace as time permitted.”
