Course Details

This communication course is designed for students needing additional assistance in meeting the language standards of a credit advanced business and technical Communication course. This course teaches the business writing skills needed to produce effective business and technical reports: inspection, trip, incident, and progress reports, proposals, feasibility studies, formal reports, oral reports, summaries and graphics. It covers the same content as COMM 2203, but has additional English language support and communication development.

To make up for a full-time diploma program level 2 COMM course, students must take both COMM 2002 (or COMM 2202) and COMM 2003 (or COMM 2203). If you have BCIT full-time diploma program level 1 COMM course credit, email cecomm@bcit.ca to apply for approval to register.
