Training Courses for Touch Typing from Activia

Touch Typing Intermediate

A 1-Day Training Course

Course Content

Special Note: Practice Exercises

The course is extremely hands-on and there is a great deal of practice involved. This ensures that by the end of the day, delegates will have both an understanding of what is required, and also their typing speed will have improved.


NB: Delegates MUST have the basics of touch typing – that is they must be able to use the correct finger positioning on a QWERTY keyboard without looking at their fingers.

Course Aims

This intensive, hands on, one-day workshop is designed to build the proficiency of touch typing, increasing speed and improving accuracy.

Who Should Attend

This course is designed for anyone who wants to improve their proficiency in the skill of touch typing to increase speed, accuracy and productivity. It works especially well for delegates who have completed Activia’s Touch Typing Introduction course or anyone who has undertaken any other touch typing training and want to refresh and update their skills.
