Having at least basic computer keyboard skills is as important in many lines of work these days as an ability to read and write. Many tasks are completed on screens and so individuals who lack the necessary know-how can quickly find themselves being left behind.
Indeed, you may be among those keen to get to grips with the fundamentals associated with keyboard use. If you lack such abilities, you may struggle to find work at all and, if you do succeed in finding roles, you might find it tough to keep up with your duties because you are too slow.
This can place you under considerable strain and may make it difficult to keep your position in the long-term, particularly given the fact that there are countless other individuals around with the necessary standard of computer keyboard confidence.
The important thing is not to be defeatist about the subject. There are ways in which you can significantly improve your abilities.
For example, here at Pitman Training we run a range of learning programmes that could be perfect for you. For example, as well as our Sage courses, we offer keyboard skills sessions.
You can complete the programmes at a pace and time that fits in with your other commitments and by the time you have finished our entry level course, you should be able to achieve accurate touch typing speeds of up to 20-25 words per minute.
This can be seen as the starting point of your keyboard skills development and it can provide you with a real confidence boost.
