What Is Typing and Shorthand training Training?

Everyone gets frustrated by how long it takes to type an email, letter or report. If you believed that it takes too long to learn to type properly, then this typing course is for you. The average two finger typist keys in about 15 words a minute. A competent touch typist would easily achieve over 60 words a minute. You could save up to 20 days a year simply by increasing from 15 words to 30 words a minute. We explain how accelerated learning works and how it has been used to teach you to touch type - fast.
