Despite advances in technology, written communication skills remain highly sought after in the business and nonprofit worlds. In fact, with more professional communications taking place over email and the web, the ability to write clearly and persuasively is arguably more in demand than ever before.
No matter how experienced you think you are, written communication is a skill requiring ongoing exercise and training. Lorman Education Services offers a range of courses that teach effective writing in a business context.

Our written communication skills training online programs range from general purpose to industry- and application-specific topics. Some of the many subjects covered by our courses include:
- Legal and tax writing: From making a persuasive, well-researched argument to covering your tracks with regards to liability issues, legal and tax writing requires precision as well as a nuanced understanding of highly specific terms. We offer a range of courses such as “Email and Memo Writing Techniques for Paralegals” and “Law Firm Website Content Writing: SEO Tricks and Ethical Traps” that help you further refine these critical skills.
- Technical writing: Translating the work of engineers, scientists and other STEM professionals into terms a layperson can understand is a specialized — and increasingly important — skill. To meet this need, we offer courses such as “Technical Writing Best Practices” and “Writing Highway Construction Specifications” that look at general issues in technical communication as well as industry-specific topics.
- Grant and proposal writing: Nonprofits that rely on private or public funds must be able to articulate the work they do and its importance in terms funders can understand. Our business writing courses teach the skills you need to create compelling proposals and grant applications.
