I’m glad it helped! I think the UCSD program is pretty good at teaching the necessary skills for nonfiction, though it’s possible to pick them up on your own (as I did) or through classes not leading toward a certificate. The main problem with trying to pick this stuff up on your own is thinking you know more than you do/less than you do. Classes can really help you calibrate your skills.
