About this course

This 'Computing - Touch Typing - Beginners' course in Tonbridge is a structured touch typing course for motivated individuals looking to develop their keyboard skills.

Home keys and correct placement of fingers will be the main emphasis with exercises for all keys. Emphasis will also be placed on the need for accuracy whilst building speed and that the skills learnt will only be mastered through continued practise after the course. The course is intended to introduce touch typing and provide sufficient skills to enable students to progress to the 'Touch Typing – Building Speed' one day course if they wish.

By the end of the course you should be able to:

- Position fingers correctly on keys;
- Explain the need and importance of accuracy while building speed.
