Business communication is a broad topic with far-reaching implications. How you communicate both internally and with stakeholders will have a critical impact on your success, your productivity, your image and a number of other factors.
Some people are born communicators, but even the most gifted recognize that effective communication in a business setting requires ongoing training. Lorman Education Services’ online business communication training is ideal for anyone who wants to improve their skills in this critical area. As a leader in distance learning since 1987, we have an extensive catalogue of programming that stresses real-world skills that will make you a stronger and more persuasive communicator.

Training Options for Busy Professionals
Communications training can benefit any professional — but only if it doesn’t interfere with your other responsibilities. Taking time away to attend classroom lectures may not be an option, particularly in smaller organizations where employees are often forced to wear multiple hats.
Our online training courses work around your schedule. Save time and avoid having to travel with our live training programs. They offer all the benefits of in-person training, but can be accessed from anywhere in the world, using any computer or mobile device. For even more convenience, we also maintain an extensive OnDemand archive of courses that can be downloaded or streamed at any time. Search for a topic of interest and start improving your business communication skills immediately.
Applications and Benefits
Some of the specific topics our business communication training programs address include:
- General communications best practices. Learn how to express yourself more effectively by breaking down barriers to communication, improving interpersonal relationships and becoming a better advocate for your interests.
- Email and electronic communication. Email is a tool used by almost every professional today. So why are communication mix-ups so common? We offer programming that helps you use email, text messaging, social media and other electronic tools to your advantage, and avoid some of the most frequent communications mistakes that transpire online.
- Business communications planning. A communications plan is an essential marketing tool for any business, nonprofit or other organization. Our training programs take a big-picture approach to corporate communications, helping you set achievable, measureable goals and capitalize on opportunities when they arise.
- Ethics and legal issues. Privacy laws and best practices are constantly changing as new communications tools are introduced. If you frequently handle confidential information — such as banking and health records or intellectual property — staying on top of your responsibilities is critical. We offer up-to-date business communications training for anyone who works with potentially sensitive data.
New programming is being added all the time, so be sure to come back often or sign up for our mailing list.
