Full details of modules and topics covered in this one-day course
This is a one-day training course structured into 8 modules
This intensive, hands on one-day workshop teaches delegates to type on a QWERTY keyboard using the correct fingers without looking at their fingers or the keys. It will also teach good posture at the keyboard and this will help to minimise repetitive strain injury (RSI).
This course is designed for anyone who wants to learn the basic skills of touch typing, and provides the foundation for developing increased speed, accuracy and productivity.
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.
