2014 Professional Writing Skills Part II (J, CA, M/S, C)

Free online self-paced training 

Welcome to Professional Writing Skills Part II. This course is an online self-paced training. It requires access to the Distance Education Program’s (DEP) secure password protected website for use by current Nevada judicial officers and court personnel (e.g. active judges, quasi-judicial officers, court employees and retired judges).

Course Description: A recent study by the College Board revealed that almost a third of employees fall short of employers' expectations in terms of written communication skills. “Professional Writing Skills Part II” is an online, self-paced course designed to address these concerns not only by reviewing the rules behind some of the most commonly made writing mistakes but also by providing ongoing lessons tailored to the specific writing needs and concerns of class participants. The course contains a series of "lessons", covering a variety of professional writing topics; additional lesson topics will be added as the course progresses. Course participants are free to choose which specific lessons they'd like to complete and can earn a Certificate of Completion for each lesson they successfully finish. This course is a continuation of the "Professional Writing Skills Review" webinar presented by Judicial Education in March of 2014.

Faculty: Ms. Jamie Gradick, Rural Courts Coordinator, Supreme Court of Nevada, Administrative Office of the Courts, Judicial Programs & Services

Continuing Education Credit: This course is not eligible for continuing education; however, a "Certificate of Completion" after each lesson is available.
