Proofreading Basics Certificate Course

Proofreading is incredibly important, regardless of your job or what you are doing. Whether you are sending a text, writing a work e-mail or drafting a contract, it is crucial that your message comes across as you intended. While a lot of this depends on your word choice, much of it relies on your ability to properly proofread. Missing spelling or grammatical mistakes can be very embarrassing. In extreme cases, they can also cost you a lot of money in terms of lost clients.

This course gives you the basic information you need to become a more effective proofreader. It begins by discussing the importance of correct spelling and offers you a few warnings on how to search your documents for incorrect words. Next, we review a few grammatical rules and give you a few additional examples of common mistakes, as well as providing corrections. Punctuation mistakes are also explored in detail, with the corrections for common mistakes provided, allowing you to improve your own punctuation. While the human eye is best, it is possible to proofread a document using Microsoft Word. We provide you with a bit of guidance to make this task much easier. Finally, we review a few other proofreading tools that people often recommend, and we make our own suggestion as to which method is best.

You will Learn:

  • The importance of proofreading
  • How to identify common spelling mistakes
  • How to identify common grammatical mistakes
  • Why you also need to proofread for punctuation mistakes
  • Examples of programs that can help you find mistakes

Benefits of Taking this Course

  • Learning a few examples of frequently misspelled words
  • Learning when to use certain words in the correct context
  • Understanding how to find and correct punctuation mistakes
  • Learning how to use Microsoft Word for proofreading purposes

I use Sage 50 every day at work, but wanted a qualification on my CV to reflect this. I thought this course was well set out and very informative.

I really appreciated that the course is split into 10 modules as this made it very easy for me to stop and come back to when convenient. I found with work and 4 kids this was very helpful and with a good feature that it saved the place where I was so you could return at any time.

I must admit I was very surprised that I learnt new things and really glad I took the course. I would recommend this course to anyone thinking of using Sage for the first time or like me already use it daily. I really appreciated the fact that I used my tablet while taking the course.

I must be honest at 36 years old, this was my first course taken online, I was generally really surprised how easy to it was to order/book on line. Overall I felt this was a very positive experience for me I not only gained a qualification, I also gained confidence and have now book up 2 more courses.

I started doing nails as a hobby, and my interest just carried on growing, I never thought that I would end up qualified!

This is an amazing way to turn your hobby into a nice little money maker and boost your own confidence and knowledge in the process.

Amy Armstrong

I am so happy I decided to take this course I would not be where I am now without it.
Nail diploma school has taught me so much I have a much better understanding of how to start my business and run is successfully.
Even employers are begging to have me and my clients are swarming after I learnt how to advertise better. A big thanks.

Gina Amron

At age 44, I took a notion to start a new career, so I booked a Travel & Tourism online course with New Skills Academy.

I was actually pretty nervous when I looked at the modules as it’s been years since I studied!

I was pleasantly surprised at how well the course flowed and how uncomplicated it was. The presentation of the course was easy to read and understand.

When I got to the final test, I was nervous, but had no need to be. It was a general test of knowledge and I passed with 70%. I feel proud!

I am Massage Therapist, I know many things about various massages and techniques. On this website I finished Upper body course and I learned loads of interesting information which I did not know before. I recommend this for everyone who wants to be a professional massage therapist or just keep it as a hobby and give a massages to family members or close friends, because it is very helpful to know how to give massage correctly. Definitely will buy more courses from this website. Looking forward to buy a new course and learn more and more and more!
