Most of our students choose the self-paced method, which allows you to learn at your own pace at one of our training centres, at a PC with audio tuition and a high quality workbook. Help is on hand in the form of our expert training team if you get stuck.

If you’re short on time, we recommend attending one of our classroom based courses that last for one or two days.

Student Review

Emily Kingsford - Executive PA Diploma“I’ve just finished my Executive PA Diploma with Pitman Training and thoroughly enjoyed studying there. Knowing that the skills I’d gain by studying here would be so transferable, made me sure that it would not be a waste of time or money! Pitman is great in that it’s so flexible so you can fit your studying in around a job or family. The trainers are always so helpful and I always felt comfortable asking them for help.

Lots of advice was given to improve my C.V; applying for jobs and interviews can be daunting but the trainers were always incredibly supportive and willing to help. I particularly enjoyed the seminar days and learnt so many useful tips. I would recommend Pitman to anybody wanting to improve their skills and make themselves more employable.
