The efficiency of a touch-typing course

'saves dozens of hours per year.'

You can see them everywhere: employees bent over their keyboard for hours, 'hunt and peck' typing with two fingers, thinking they are typing fast. This creates not only an unhealthy attitude, but also dozens of unnecessary lost days of working time per year.

An example. An employee, who, on average spends 4 hours per day typing, will save about 40 days (!) by learning to touch-type.
The student learns the keys via the unique TypeReflex® learning method. That way, you learn by typing real words and not boring, nonsensical combinations of letters. It is the most effective way to learn touch-typing. It reduces the typing course time with 50%.
The online typing course, typing skills for companies, including the online exam for a typing certificate is £99,60 per registered employee. With the company license for the touch-typing course, you can order the Skinny Typehelp® for £16,65.
The question is not if a company’s employees should learn touch-typing; the question is if an enterprise can afford employees who cannot touch-type.

Take the 1-2-3-typing test and see what touch-typing can do for you.

  1. Take the 1-minute typing speedtest to determine your current 'hunt and peck' typing speed.
  2. Submit the data below.
  3. Calculate how much time touch-typing will save you.

Number of working hours per week
Number of hours per day spent ‘hunt and peck’ typing
My number of days off per year
The estimated number of working days per year that I am absent (sick, training, etc.)
My current (normal) typing speed, as measured with the 1-minute speedtest
My age (which affects the expected learning curve)
Your expected touch-typing speed (from 6 months after the typing course)
Your annual time savings, thanks to touch-typing in full working days

The calculation is a fair estimate, but the result varies from person to person. No rights are granted to the calculation.

The TICKEN typing course: do it yourself

The online typing course can be done instantly. After company registration, enter the email addresses of employees who will do the course. They will receive an e-mail instantly and can log in and commence the course. The course can be done at home or at work, as the course is completely online.

The typing course in 30 effective touch-typing lessons.

The TICKEN touch-typing course has a unique approach and learning method. If an employee completes one typing lesson (25’-30’) each working day, they will be able to touch-type within 6 weeks.
Besides fast typing, there’s also a positive effect to OHS. The employee sits upright during touch-typing. While typing, the focus is on the screen, not the keyboard.
During the first period, the typing speed will not be optimal, because the finger movements must be 'automated' in the brain, but as the employee touch types more frequently, the typing speed will increase rapidly after completion of the touch-typing course.
