The Minute Takers Course


Taking minutes is one of the essential ingredients in making sure that meetings are productive and cost-effective. They also become the legal record of what took place in the meeting, so they need to be done right! In The Minute Taker’s Workshop, the focus is on accurate, complete, and useable minutes.

Students in the minute taker’s course learn the value of different types of minutes, including formal, semi-formal, and action minutes. With this course, they’ll also improve their listening skills, critical thinking, and organizational skills to help them keep up with what’s happening in the meeting and to prepare their follow-up documentation.
