Writing Customer-Support Messages focuses on structuring the customer-support message to have maximum clarity and effectiveness.
This course contains assignments, practice activities, and written competency exams. Similar to how college classes work, you do your assigned work on your own, then submit it to your instructor, who grades, comments upon, and returns the assignment to you.
