Why learn touch-typing?

As a professional skill, typing started developing in the second half of the 19th century, with the establishment of ten-finger typing technique, which remains the base of touch typing to date. Althoug typewriters have undergone several major changes and so has the keyboard layout, touch typing is still a desirable skill for a number of jobs. As keyboarding is primarily a skill rather than a knowledge, it requires adequate practice and drill time. In learning typing, it is necessary to highlight the two fundamental goals, i.e. accuracy and speed, so that, in accordance with the extent to which learners have attained these goals, there are several classes of typists. Jobs employing only touch-typists require Class 1A, while knowledge of the ten-finger touch-typing technique in other administrative tasks raises the efficiency of operation.

Learning outcomes

It includes theoretical and practical teaching, and participants who successfully complete the training will master the technique of ten-finger blind typing on the computer and will be able to type quickly with a small percentage of errors, which is a prerequisite, later, for obtaining a certain class.

The typist training course lasts three months and includes 40 lessons. Theoretical and practical classes are conducted in groups in a computer cabinet, with all the necessary accessories, materials and literature provided.
