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.

Typing is a core and fundamental skill and our typing courses will fast track you to becoming an accurate and speedy typist.

Microsoft PowerPoint
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.

Microsoft Word
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: -


"The Pitman Diploma really opened doors for me which were firmly shut before. I wholeheartedly recommend Pitman Training Galway...... I found work within 2 months!" Click here to read more.


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.
