This course focuses on grammar, writing concisely, using clear sentence structures, and avoiding common business-writing errors.
It was developed in cooperation with Service Strategies, Inc., a company that specializes in working with technical call centers, and contains assignments, practice activities, and written competency exams.
Similar to how college classes work, you do your assigned work on your own, then submit it to your instructor, who grades, comments upon, and returns the assignment to you. The instructor will coach you in this way until you master the skills. FYI, your instructor is also available via email or phone.
