The Struggle and Why YOU Should Take This Course

Early in your career, you can waste months trying to learn more skills to write winning proposals. Despite all of your efforts, you’re completely lost because you:

  • Lack a formal background in proposal writing
  • Find courses that don’t focus on writing skills, only theory.
  • Don’t have insider tips on proposal formatting

To become a better proposal writing professional, we went down the rabbit hole to understand what it takes to build successful proposals from the inside out. We interviewed thought leaders within the industry, learned the behaviors and habits of successful proposal writers, and documented our experience writing winning proposals. Empowered with this knowledge, we’ve helped many become successful proposal writers.

The Proposal Writing Certification Course was created for aspiring proposal writers or people who want to generate lots of revenue through proposals. In this course, we teach: fundamentals of proposal writing, how to write a great proposal, how to format proposals, and how to get proposal writing clients.

What are you going to get from this course?

  • Over 70+ lectures, 10+ downloadable grant writing templates, and exclusive interviews (more added over time) with grant writing professionals in the industry.
  • Instructor feedback on your grant proposal.
  • And you’ll learn key fundamentals of being a grant writer, how to write epic grant proposals, and how to stand out as a better candidate to land the job including topics like:
  • Access to downloadable templates used by actual grant writers on the job.
  • Learn the process of answering the most popular grant writing interview questions in order to stand out as a grant writing candidate.
  • Earn a certificate of completion upon finishing the course

Bonus Content:

  • I have been 100% committed to adding more BONUS course content and interviews with tech product leaders over time (I love all things Grant Writing and highly enjoy adding content!) and you’ll get FREE LIFETIME ACCESS to all future content!


“I wanted to let you know I signed an offer for my first official technical writing job yesterday! Thanks for your wonderful class and great resources.” – 5/5 stars

– Teena M.Technical Writing student who now works as a Technical Writer

“While I started the program with zero experience, I realized learning the fundamental concepts isn’t as insurmountable as I initially expected as long as I put in the effort to learn. This program is the one-stop-shop for all technical writing.”

– Angie OrMechanical Design Engineer

“Thank you for taking the time to review my work and for the constructive feedback, really appreciate it. And thank you for this great course, I will be referencing it often for sure.”

 Christian Quiles, Technical Writing student who now works as a Technical Writer

“The capstone will make a great addition to my writing portfolio. I didn’t realize how much experience companies expect from their technical communication applicants, so having the writing samples and insight from this course helps A TON as someone with only one year of full-time work experience. You guys nailed it.”
