My writing on the job has definitely improved. I write more confidently as a result and more frequently. In addition, I am more open to suggestions about my writing than previously. I think I`ve gained a greater sense of collaboration in terms of publishing a document. I did use my final assignment to help prepare me for a potential proposal that may prove to be very lucrative.

This course contained valuable information presented in a well-organized on-line format that I could access at my convenience. I learned not only from the material, but the presentation of the material. I had an excellent instructor both knowledgeable and approachable. I believe I have benefited from the courses I`ve taken with Techwriter-Certification. I`m definitely interested in completing more on-line courses and will recommend them to my co-workers.
This course and instructor gave me more insight on how to write policies, procedures, and forms that will be understood by senior, and new employees. I will use this learning experience to help re-write 100's of company documents.
Excellent course, thank you so much! My instructors are very professional and knowledgeable. They answered all my questions promptly and helped me greatly in this process. They paid lots of detailed attention to my assignments and gave me several very useful pieces of advice. I am very satisfied with this course of study.
