Learn to Touch Type in a Day
This is a different kind of touch typing course – it is fun and exercise-based. By the end of the course you will be able to recall all the keys of a keyboard from memory and be well on your way to becoming a keyboard whizz!
This course can be delivered remotely via GoToTraining. Contact us for availability and pricing, or see our Live Online Learning page for our interactive 90-minute webinars that cover specific sessions.
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 remotely, at your workplace or here at Happy's HQ in Aldgate, Central London.

Great tips that I'm using daily. I'm eating frogs regularly and setting my timer for 25 mins. I'm much more productive. Thanks.

Did you know...
...learning to touch type reduces both mental and physical weariness?
You're moving at a faster pace, but you're not going through the physical struggle of finding the right keys. Likewise, concern about the direction of your hands isn't interfering with the content of your work.
