AMWA Self-Study Workshops

Each self-study workshop module includes a workbook with examples and exercises, a CD-ROM featuring an interactive PDF of the workbook, a laminated Quick Guide, and an answer sheet for people pursuing an AMWA certificate. AMWA's certificate programis an extensive continuing education program for professional communicators in the medical and allied scientific fields.
