Business Communication


CBC banner 16-17

No matter what your role, you need to be able to communicate. Over 70 percent of our workdays are spent interacting with others, so communication is an activity that we rely on heavily. The Certificate in Business Communications allows you combine courses suited to your needs to build a certificate to fit your requirements, whether to improve your interpersonal, written or verbal skills. Once you complete one writing course, you can decide what other communication skills you want to work on.

Here are some ideas on how to choose from the courses listed below to improve your daily communication. As a team member or team leader, you need to have well-developed interpersonal communication skills to get your ideas across clearly. Your writing is under continuous scrutiny and you want to gain some strategies for the government environment. And finally, regardless of your role, improving your writing skills will increase your ease and effectiveness in keeping people informed to maintain strong working relations.

If your goal is to improve your confidence and skills as a communicator then the Certificate in Business Communications is a good place to start.
