Touch Typing Introduction

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.

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).

Who Should Attend

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.
