Today is going to be different. Prepare to have fun, relax and learn. All we ask you to bring is your willingness to learn, allow us to do the rest - the exercises you will take part in are designed using accelerated learning techniques. If you are not confident using a PC and mouse, then you may want to take our Windows 7 or Windows 10 Essentials course first.
What you will learn
In particular you will be able to:
- Recall keys from memory
- Type as you look at the screen
Unlike most courses, there isn’t a strict timetable to follow. Instead:
Learning the keys
You will commit to memory up to 30 keys used in touch typing. You will work with a partner and your trainer will guide you through some carefully designed exercises. Laughter is thoroughly recommended, as is smiling and enjoying yourself.
You will become spatially aware of the keys, learning how to move from key to key, we provide you with exercises designed by us to get you fluent on the keys. Your trainer will coach you in your technique.
The course concentrates on accuracy, not speed, throughout the day. By the end of the day you will be able touch type. It might be very slow, however, with continued practice, you will be able to achieve good speeds.
There are no shortcuts to speed development – continued practice will improve your speed.
Group Learning Events
If you have three or more learners, a private group course could be cheaper.
We can tailor the content to your team, and host the training at your workplace or here at Happy's HQ in Aldgate, Central London.

Good training. Could have done with some actual roll play around chairing meetings and dealing with difficult situations
