Some ways to get communication skill training include attending a seminar and taking a course at a college or online through a training company. Communication skill training can help individuals improve their listening skills, be more assertive, network with others and become better speakers, notes National Seminar Training.
Communication skill training seminars can be as short as a day and may be scheduled or on-demand. They tend to focus on business communication and feature key points to help individuals with their oral and written communication skills.
Online courses in communication skills are available through training companies like ALISON. They may be free and self-paced, and sometimes they lead to a certificate. Individuals may watch videos teaching effective communication skills and then take tests to check their knowledge.
On-campus college courses in communication skills may be available through the school's continuing education department. Some possible course topics can include team collaboration, active listening, conflict management, business grammar, business writing and social media strategy, shows Bellevue College.
