About this course

Learning how to type fast is one thing. Learning to type faster whilst retaining accuracy is quite another!

Our Keyboard Speed Development course will improve typing speed and keep your accuracy up to scratch too - so you'll be more efficient and productive.

Over four stages of the course, we can take you as high as 70 words per minute and that's a skill which is very much in demand. With us, you can not only learn to type quickly, you'll get the Pitman Training name on your CV too - which is well worth having. And after completing the course, your workbook will make a handy reference guide.

This course is the perfect preparation for further training to enhance your career - such as our Microsoft Office courses or specialist secretarial diplomas, which can seriously enhance your earning potential.

With a wide choice of training locations and combined flexible self-paced learning, we offer training that fits around your life. There’s always a course advisor on hand to give you one-on-one support when you need it.

In this course you will work on the following:

  • Four stages ranging from 25-70 wpm, which aim to increase speed, dexterity, accuracy and productivity.
  • Graded copying exercises to emphasise different points of technique for flexibility and dexterity.
  • Use of audio speed dictation specifically timed to enable pacing against target speeds as you progress.

Aims and Objectives

This course is for anyone who would like to touch type more accurately. We're aiming to get you near to a speed of 70 words per minute.
