Typing Speed Development

Get your speed up to 70 words per minute with this Typing Course!

Typing Speed Development is one of our most popular typing courses, and is enjoyed by everyone from IT professionals, through to secretaries and Executive PA’s.

Designed to get you up to speeds of 70 wpm, you’ll finish the course with a fast typing speed that will set you above your competition in the jobs market.

How Does Typing Speed Development Work?

The course moves through 4 distinct stages which aim to increase speed, dexterity, accuracy and productivity, with the ultimate aim of getting you up to a typing speed of 70 wpm.

Each stage is treated as a separate unit, and you begin the course at the level that reflects your current ability.

Don’t worry if you’re not sure which level you’re at, our trainers will be able to assess your typing skills beforehand, and provide you with exercises to remove any bad habits.

Graded copying exercises and tapes with timed dictation will ensure that you’ll increase your speed and productivity when typing.

As you work through the course, our trainers will keep an eye on your posture and the position of your hands to make sure you’re doing everything correctly.

On average, the total study time required to complete the four stages of this programme totals 40 hours.

Typing Speed Development provides the core skills for RSA word processing examinations, and the opportunity to earn a widely recognised Pitman Training Certificate.
