HOW IT WORKS

As soon as you sign up you get immediate, lifetime access to all the course materials - downloadable course videos, worksheets and extra materials. As a self-paced course, you work through a series of video presentations on various aspects of Reporting Skills and Professional Writing at your own pace.

The first half of the course examines the key skills of Professional Writing, while in the second part we move onto the process of reporting - setting objectives, gathering and analysing data, and planning / drafting / editing reports.

This is a practical course. At various points you will invited to stop the video and complete different tasks. You will find the worksheets for these inside the course. Please do stop and do the tasks when asked.

All of the videos can be downloaded for off-line study / reference, as can everything else - PDF slides, worksheets and reference materials.

At the end of the course there is a test to measure how successfully you have learned the skills before you are issued with your certificate.
