Advanced Communication

After completing the basic manual and receiving recognition as a Competent Communicator, you can work in the Advanced Communication Series manuals where you’ll refine and enhance your speaking skills. 

There are 15 manuals, each containing five speech projects. Many of the manuals are career-oriented. You choose the manuals you want to develop specific skills for personal growth and to enhance your career.
