The nationally recognised Pitman Training Diploma level Receptionist course enables people working in reception to prove to employers and recruiters that they have the skills necessary to provide reception and clerical duties to the highest standards.
Students who take this Receptionist course will not only learn how to communicate at work and how to welcome visitors, but they will also learn to touch type, manage office organisation with Microsoft Outlook and much more.
You’ll work your way through 7 modules, which can take around 5 weeks to complete, but you will have up to a year to finish this self-paced Receptionist course.
You’ll learn to touch type accurately using all of your fingers, and without having to look at the keyboard.
In this module, you’ll learn how to produce great looking business documents to reflect the professional style of your organisation.
Here, you’ll learn verbal and non-verbal communication skills as well as the principles and structure of written communication, to make sure you are giving the right impression all the time.
Enjoy a one day classroom seminar where you’ll meet other receptionists and learn how to project the best front of house image for your organisation.
Most people only know how to use a fraction of Microsoft Word’s functionality – with this course you’ll learn how to produce professional looking Word documents efficiently, using a wide range of functions.
Manage multiple diaries for managers and colleagues, organise meeting rooms and master advanced email techniques.

If you’re looking for a tutor led Receptionist course, try our one day Professional Receptionist Seminar.
Apart from the classroom based Professional Receptionist Seminar, the other core modules are self-paced, which means you’ll study at our training centres with the support of our friendly tutors, working with pre-recorded lessons, a workbook and computer.
You’ll take short exams after each module and when you pass, you’ll be awarded a certificate for each subject.
When you’ve passed all your exams, you’ll receive the coveted Pitman Training Receptionist Diploma.
Students love our training methodology as they can start when they want, and study when they want (even if they work shifts or have an irregular timetable) so they will never miss a class!

What’s The Price Of The Receptionist Diploma?
People frequently ask us why we don’t put the prices of our diploma programmes on our website.
The answer is that every student’s diploma is different!
While the prices for the individual modules are the same, your choices of “electives” plus any exemptions for existing skills will affect the total price of your Receptionist diploma.
That’s why we urge potential students to have a chat with one of our expert Course Advisors, who will then be able to build a diploma programme around their specific needs.
When you enquire don’t forget to ask about this month’s special diploma promotion!
How To Enrol
The first step to becoming a qualified receptionist is to talk to one of our Course Advisors who will establish whether you qualify for any exemptions due to prior skills, and will also help you make the best choice of elective subject.
If you’re enquiring for yourself, we can enrol you then and there.
If your employer is paying for your receptionist course, we’ll give you some forms for completion by your boss and as soon as we receive them, we’ll call you to arrange your start date.
