Students will also have an opportunity to identify their personal learning objectives. Business Writing Basics To get started, we will look at some basic ways that business writing is different from literary writing. Writing a Proposal During this session, we will look at the two major types of proposals: formal and informal. Writing Your Proposal There are three easy steps to get started on writing a proposal. We will discuss each of them in a lecture. Getting Thoughts on Paper We will look at some ways to organize and sequence a proposal. Then, participants will apply those methods to a sample proposal.

ctc TrainCanada - We Never Cancel*:
We are unique in the corporate training field in that we do not cancel desktop applications courses due to low enrollment. When there are less than 3 students, ctc TrainCanada will personalize the class (students then receive more time with the instructor to address their individual needs allowing the student to complete the full course in less time) or connect the student remotely to a class at one of our other branches via TrainLive remote classroom instruction. *Microsoft Certified Courses and other technical courses require a minimum enrollment of three students. Business Skills courses require multiple students in order to run due to the interactive nature of the training. Selected Desktop Applications courses may require a minimum enrollment of two students to run. ctc TrainCanada® reserves the right to deliver Microsoft Certified and other technical courses via TrainLive remote classroom instruction in order to guarantee the course to run.
