Business Communication

Business communication is critical to the success of any organization. We have created a program to enhance a student’s ability to communicate clearly and concisely in the workplace. Students will learn from a full communication curriculum that includes effective business writing, public speaking, emails and presentations. Upon successful completion, students will receive an award of completion in Business Communication.

Payment Options

This program is noncredit (not degree applicable); therefore, it is not eligible for federal education loans. To ensure ease of payment for different circumstances, we strive to be flexible when working with individuals. The most common methods of payment are:

Employer Reimbursement

Many companies offer employee reimbursement for continuing education because it directly affects job performance, keeps the company up-to-date and boosts employee morale. If you work at a company that will pay for your continuing education, be sure to get prior approval.

Personal Investment

Professional development may be something in which you need to invest to advance your career. It is important to realize it is an investment because it will unlock new opportunities in your current position or one in which you desire to move.

Workforce Development Centers

It may be possible to take advantage of government funded programs through a Workforce Development Center and enroll in professional development programs. Some who are in a job transition use this opportunity to refine their skills in a familiar area, while others choose to learn a new skill set.
