Distance Learning Training Courses

Although ESTON Training provides traditional front-of-class technical and commercial writing and authorship training, much of their success in training professional technical and commercial writers and authors can be attributed to the methods they adopt in packaging and marketing their writing and authorship courses. They realise that most people cannot afford to stop work in order to train for a better and more rewarding career as a technical or commercial author.

Without a regular income, few can afford to pay for the writing or authorship training course that they have decided upon. Therefore, ESTON Training includes competitively-priced, modular, distance learning training courses in their training portfolio. With this method of learning, the student decides when to work and how many study hours to set aside each week. The student can also choose whether a writing (EDL1T) or authorship (EDL2D) course is appropriate, or whether they require a technical/commercial authorship training course with full tutorial support.
