Learn With One Of The Longest Established Office Skills Trainers!
The Pitman name has been a byword for office skills excellence since the 1800′s, so you can rely on us to develop your workplace skills and there’s no better place to learn or to improve your typing speed than at Pitman Training in London’s High Holborn, Notting Hill, Croydon or in Manchester.
Whether you’re a complete beginner, a two-fingered typist, a mother returning to work or an experienced secretary needing to type faster, we have something that’s exactly right for you!
Many people are unsure about their current level of ability, so we usually begin by asking whether you look at your fingers when you type and whether you know which are the home keys.
If you’re a beginner, we’ll teach you how to type accurately without looking at your fingers – important for secretaries, administrators and IT professionals.
If it’s clear that you can already touch type, we’ll often invite you in for an informal speed test to see what remains to be done to get your speed up to 70 words per minute. It’s fun and unpressured to take the test so don’t hesitate to ask us to time you – and it’s free, too!
We meet people with all levels of skill and we quickly help them to achieve truly impressive speeds and accuracy with genuine touch typing.
Our audio transcription programmes will enable you to operate a digital transcriber and we can even speed up your use of the numeric keypad – great for bookkeeping and data entry jobs!
And when you pass your exam, you’ll earn a nationally recognised certificate to prove your speed and accuracy to recruitment agencies and employers.
How Our Programmes Work.
The first important point to know about our training is that you can study at any time during our long opening hours (open till 8:00 most nights and all day Saturday). We also run a two-day classroom course in Holborn (London).
Apart from our classroom course, your study time is completely flexible so it’s easy to fit your course around your other commitments, even if you work irregular shifts!
In addition, our touch typing course for beginners can be studied online or at our training centres or at a mixture of the two!
All our typing courses are delivered by the use of audio lessons, a workbook and a computer, with our friendly, experienced tutors always on hand to help you with your technique.
You’re welcome to come and visit us to sample any of the courses, free, to identify which one is right for you. If you already touch type, we’ll be pleased to test your speed and accuracy too.
Courses for you
Most jobs need a computer to function these days, and some career paths rely on them more than others. A basic understanding of how to use word processing software is vital, but if you use them more than most then typing at speed will be a high priority. That’s when touch typing comes in, and if you learn touch typing effectively you’ll notice a huge surge in productivity.
Learn the easy way
Touch typing may initially seem difficult to master, particularly if you’re used to only using two fingers to type, but it really doesn’t have to be that hard. With the right method, you’ll be able to learn quickly and easily, and as a result will have proven credentials to show employers your speed and accuracy – something that’s essential for secretarial and administration roles. With proper touch training and practice, you’ll soon pick up the skills needed, and if you come to us you’ll be able to see how easy it is to learn touch typing.
