COURSE OUTLINE

Full details of modules and topics covered in this one-day course

DURATION

This is a one-day training course structured into 8 modules

COURSE AIMS

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).

TARGET AUDIENCE

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.

General Information

All Activia introduction to touch typing courses have been created, reviewed and developed to ensure up to date provision and constantly improving standards of content. Our Touch Typing training is interactive and classroom-based which maximises learning through the ability to ask questions and discuss specific issues.

Maximum class size for Touch Typing courses is 10 delegates, which ensures that attendees get adequate time for personal attention from the instructor. At some of our centres, the maximum class size is 12 delegates.
