This class is a must for every business professional.

Know the quality standards required of all business correspondence.  Make sure that every document you create meets expectations for business professionals.

Learn professional techniques used to spot and correct errors.

Every document that you write should contain complete sentences and proper punctuation.  Many readers are attuned to spotting errors.  Unfortunately, errors can distract the reader from the actual content of the document.  This course will help you create documents that convey your thoughts without unnecessary distractions.

  • Locate and correct surface errors in a variety of documents of differing lengths
