Get a head start!
Have you just finished college and looking for that first office job or are you heading into your final year, this usually involves lots of note taking, presentations and of course that final year thesis. Save time next year, Pitman Training can help you become more efficient with the following skills;
Typing is a core and fundamental skill and our typing courses will fast track you to becoming an accurate and speedy typist. Think of Pitman Training as your personal typing tutor - because we'll make it easy to learn to type. Save hours in the office, save hours on projects and your final year thesis, call Pitman Training today.
Get ahead of your class with amazing presentation skills. Spend more time on research and content instead of trying to figure out how to actually use PowerPoint. This training programme is extremely wide-ranging covering, to name just a few topics, running slide shows, planning and designing presentations, applying themes, inserting slides from Word, drawing and resizing shapes, charts and spreadsheets, using flowcharts, viewing and editing comments, transition effects and hyperlinks.
How much easier would a project or thesis be if you actually knew how to use such features in Word like; bookmarks, sources and bibliography, indexing and cross-referencing, footnotes and endnotes, captions, citations, macros and keyboard shortcuts, using the wizard and Excel data sources, know how to manage complex documents, forms, tables, applying styles and the style inspector, change tracking and the reviewing pane, document properties and using Word’s web tools and hyperlinks and using SmartArt to its full potential.
One very important skill all college students should learn is good note taking. Surprisingly, a large number of students never do learn effective note taking skills. The ability to write organised and targeted notes will serve you well through college and even after you graduate. From the expert in secretarial and shorthand training, Pitman Training’s SpeedWriting course is a new way to learn the BakerWriteTM SpeedWriting system in just six hours. It will help you accurately record the spoken word, to speeds of 40 wpm and beyond.

News and Events
Some quick success stories from just a couple of our students and news from the team in Galway: -
Best of luck Becky and Claire in your new Legal Secretary jobs from Tracey and all the staff at Pitman Training Galway
Becky has just completed the Legal Secretary Diploma with us here at Pitman Galway. She has a strong retail management background but also studied Law in college and her dream was to gain employment as a Legal Secretary.
Claire has a hospitality background with no previous office experience and commenced her Legal Secretary Diploma with Pitman Training Galway only a couple of months ago.
Both girls stdied hard and were highly committed to the course. A leading legal practice in Galway, who hired a legal secretary trained by Pitman Galway last year, contacted us again and both Becky and Claie were successful in securing full time positions as Legal Secretaries. We' like to take the opportunity to wish both Becky and Claire the very best of luck in their new careers.
".....I have loved it. As I work full time, the flexibility of the course was extremely convenient for me. The course coordinators have been amazing through the entire process and were always available to help with any difficulties I was having. Through the course, I was always made aware of jobs in the area I was studying and as a result, I now have a full time job. I would highly recommend Pitman Training to anyone looking to change career paths or to get them started on the path they want" (BECKY)
"I have no complaints about my time spent at the Galway Pitman Training Centre, the flexible hours would suit anybody who wants to advance or make a change in their career. The staff are extremely helpful, always available to answer any questions and to give very good advice whether it is about a course, an exam or even job opportunities" (CLAIRE)

I thoroughly enjoyed my course and found it very interesting. The staff at Pitman Training in Galway are extremely helpful and friendly, and I have since started work as a medical secretary. I love my job!'
I completed my Diploma in Office Skills in September 2013. After many years working as a Sales Assistant in a pharmacy I decided I wanted a change of career. A friend recommended Pitman Training because of their flexible hours and great teachers. While I attended Pitman Training I really enjoyed the course especially because I was able to choose my own hours and when I was confident enough, I was able to decide when I wanted to do my exams. The teachers were very helpful and friendly and as for the course advisor, Tracey, I can't thank her enough for all she did for me. She was always there for me when I needed advice or even just a chat about future employment etc. Thanks to the skills that I learned with Pitman, I am now in full time employment and cannot recommend them enough.
Mary, one of our more recent Medical Secretary Diploma Graduates, secured work experience in the Galway Clinic. Within 6 weeks of the work experience she had secured a permanent appointment as a Medical Secretary, and is very much enjoying her new job.
On returning from England to start the Advanced Accounts Diploma, Michael was successful in getting a job in a local manufacturing company, where he was able to combine his previous work experience with his new Pitman qualifications to help him secure a 6 month maternity leave contract.
Glenda Raftery, a previous Pitman Diploma Graduate returned to work in the Training centre after the birth of her first little Girl. Glenda has worked with us in Galway for over 4 years, and has helped many students achieve their dreams, through her advice and support as a Training Advisor and Supervisor.
