Take command of your report and learn how to write clear, accurate, and easy-to-read professional records that boost your team’s work.

In our course, participants acquire techniques and tools to better organize, write, and edit reports and other technical documents.

We cover important topics like developing a document using an outline, choosing a format, and identifying the audience. Students also brush up on editing skills and
