The Individualized Business Writing Training course is developed based on the trainee's needs and/or wishes to pursue an area of writing skills. This course is taught by Dr. Robert Hogan, director of the Business Writing Center and author of Explicit Business Writing: Best Practices for the Twenty-First Century. You may have a clear conception of what you would like to learn, or may ask the instructor to diagnose your writing and develop an individualized course of study. You may combine portions of existing writing courses. For example, one business person wanted to learn business writing skills and how to edit. The instructor combined lessons from the two courses into an individualized course of study.
You will go through the course at your own pace, so you could complete it within a few weeks. However, you have up to four months to complete the course so you can fit the study time into your schedule. All lessons must be finished within the four-month period.
